KNIT-ALONG: Sweater Blanket Knit-Along 2019

Knit Blanket Knitalong

The Ombre Sweater Blanket Knit-Along is part kit, part workshop, part community.

I include all materials and instruction in each kit so you can knit this woolly mammoth of a blanket:

  • nearly five pounds of chunky luxury wool yarn

  • giant wooden knitting needles

  • a weekly guided knitting lesson, complete with videos I created especially for you to show the basic knitting skills we will explore

  • a canvas, backpack-style duffel bag to make your project transportable

  • free Sweater Blanket knitting clinics at the Tulsa showroom

  • free Facebook group with tips, tricks, laughs, and camaraderie

  • LOTS of support as you progress—I won’t leave you hanging!

The Knit-Along lasts 8 weeks, with a new technique, pattern reveal, and video delivered to your inbox each week.

Can't knit one week? No biggie! Signing up gives you lifetime access to the instructions, videos, and support, allowing you to work at your own pace.

chunky knit blanket knitting kit

Week 1 starts Saturday, Jan. 5—the perfect time for a post-holiday, relaxing craft project that snuggles you while you work.

Full instructions on how to participate in the knit-along will be emailed upon registration.

Sign-up for the Knit-Along starts Black Friday, Nov. 23, and closes at midnight on Sunday, Dec. 9. Knit-Along supplies will be mailed Saturday, Dec. 22. Local pick-up will be available Saturday, Jan. 5.

In the amount of time it takes you to Netflix through an episode and a half of Game of Thrones, you can learn to make a hanging home for your favorite plants. 

In this 90-minute macramé workshop, I will provide everything you need—100-percent cotton cord, natural wood beads, an instruction booklet I wrote and photographed just for you, and even enough snacks to fuel you and your creativity—to create a handmade macramé hanging planter, the most handy-dandy of the macramé sculptures.  

We will cover basic macramé terms and techniques, including how to customize your hanger for any plant or planter, how to decorate your hanger with knots and fringe, and the best way to hang your final piece. You and your new macra-pals will leave class with everything you need to know to create at least 88 more macramé hanging planters, if not more. 

But certainly not less. Because you're about to catch the macramé bug, my friends. Because of this, I will have additional hanging-planter kits, which include cord, beads, hanger, and an instruction booklet, available for purchase during class, plus extras of all the raw materials we use in class.
