A monthly social! Come to one session or all of them, join in at any time. We'll be knitting blanket blocks, a new one each month. There is a different stitch pattern for each block, most are simple knit/purl patterns with a cable or two thrown in for fun. Each square will end up approximately 13" x 13" (if you use worsted weight yarn, see below). Stitch Central will provide light snacks, non-alcoholic refreshments, and glasses.
We'll meet on the first Friday of the month, except for the kick-off meeting July 12th.
Choose a DK, worsted weight or aran yarn such as Manos del Uruguay Maxima
, Berocco Ultra Alpaca
, Madeline Tosh Farm Twist
, Berocco Vibe
, Cotton Forget-Me-Not
and many others, and get needles to match. Use the same color for all the blocks or mix it up!
Our sample is being knitted in Manos del Uruguay "Maxima", and our first square came out at 13" x 13" . It used approximately 2/3 of the skein, so theoretically
you could knit your blanket with 8 skeins. This will of course depend on the yarn you choose, your gauge, and the stitch pattern. This is more social than class...Stitch Central will be hosting & can help with the pattern, but there will be no formal instruction.
