Fall is the time for our college-bound students to forge ahead into dorm life…. and what better send-off than with a cozy hand-knit! Work this beautiful blanket in your student’s college colors. Or work it for yourself in colors that match your coziest knitting chair! Let’s put together some smashing colors and make this sophisticated piece that combines a variety of hues with varying textures. Designed by Brenda York, the texture is created by simple and effective stitchwork, using garter and stockinette rows, seed stitch, and some slip-stitch patterns. This project can be done as it is written colorwise, or we can play with the order of colors and individualize…..your choice. It’s fun to work on with a group, too!


Advance preparation may be required, depending on the class topic. Details will be provided at least one week in advance or upon sign-up. Each weekly class session includes two hours of hands-on instruction, or more if needed and our time allows (it almost always does!). Yarn for our classes must come from Compatto Yarn Salon, and we are always happy to help you choose the best yarn for your class or project. Classes must have at least three participants in order to run. If you have questions about this or any other class, please give us a call at 310-453-2130.
