We at Marine Mills are delighted to offer another class by Cara Corey. This is Cara’s most popular class and we can
see why! Learn how to make a dreamy super thick and cozy knit blanket out of wool roving, plus tips and techniques for caring for these blankets. No knitting experience required! Knit and crochet designer Cara Corey will show you how to use a “table knitting” technique, forming the stitches with your hands rather than using knitting needles. In this class you will also learn:
- How to source additional wool roving
- How to graft ends together by needle felting
- How to care for the wool, and use felting to prevent it from fuzzing too much
- Where to buy giant knitting needles (if you decide you want them) and how to make your own giant needles out of PVC pipe
The yarn we provide is enough wool roving to make a blanket approximately 30×50 inches in size with a lot of stretch. Please choose a color from the color swatch photo & type in comment section when you check out. Color choices are: Undyed (Cream), Seal, Granite, Aubergine, Candy Pink, Mallard, Denim, and Claret. woolcolors
