Would you like to have a go at designing your own blanket?  Perhaps you have a baby to knit for?  This two part class gets you playing with colour and pattern to design your own blanket.  We demonstrate three techniques in this class: Plain squares with bands of colour, mitre squares and log cabin design.  Most of the fun is in trying out what works for you: laying out different colour combinations and trying repeat patterns.  it is entirely up to you if you want to make something easy and modest or be much more adventurous.  Students will be required to knit between each class to keep up to speed.

Materials: You will need a total of 300-400g of DK yarn and 3.75m needles.  300g will make a crib blanket of approx 20x30". 350-400g will make a cot blanket of approx 50x70".  100g would make one side of a cushion.  you should choose a main background colour and perhaps 2 or 3 compatibale contrast colours.  You could choose to bring along leftover oddments of yarn to experiment with or use the yarn sold in the shop for inspiration.

All our classes are taught from our bright retail premises at Burwash Manor just outside Cambridge.  Tea and biscuits included.

Please be aware that we need two students enrolled on the class otherwise it is subject to cancellation.  By purchasing this class you are agreeing to our class policy.
