Learn to Arm Knit a Giant Blanket with Claire Gelder - 2 June


Learn to arm knit your very own super cosy giant blanket! Join Wool Couture founder Claire Gelder for this fun workshop using Epic Extreme 100% merino wool. This course is suitable for beginners or someone wanting a giant knitting experience! Designed for the beginner, you will learn how to arm knit by casting on, learning the knit stitch, casting off and tying in the ends. By the end of the workshop you will have knitted your own giant blanket - you will be amazed how quickly your blanket knits up!

If you book at least two weeks in advance you'll be able to choose your colour from the picture. Please leave this as a comment (i.e. B3 please) on your order. 

The finished size of the blanket will be based on the amount of ‘kilos’ you choose:

  • Blanket 30 x 50 inches — 2 kg (£100)
  • Blanket 48 x 48 inches — 3 kg (£135)
  • Blanket 58 x 58 inches — 4 kg (£170)
  • Blanket 64 x 80 inches — 6 kg (£240)

Caring for your blanket after class: Your blanket will be will be supple and the measurements will change within a few inches back and forth with use, because of the natural movement in the yarn. This is a luxury item, made with pure high quality merino wool so please treat the blanket with care. Un-spun wool may lightly shed and pure merino wool will have a wooly smell until the blanket has aired. To care for your blanket we recommend spot cleaning. Use professional dry cleaners if necessary.
