Novice Knits: Picot Edge Baby Blanket


This easy garter-stitch blanket is based on a tried-and-true pattern. Take this class and not only will you be off to a great start on your first project, you'll learn lots of techniques too!


What It's All About

This easy garter stitch blanket is based on a tried-and-true washcloth pattern. It's been "fancied up" with a picot edge that makes the border as cute as can be. Take this class and not only will you be off to a great start on one of your first projects, you'll also learn how to increase with yarn-overs, make two different types of decreases and create a picot edge.

We'll be using a pattern (included in your registration fee) from Churchmouse Yarns and Tea that provides you with several options for blankets and washcloths in different weights of yarn so you can make this project several times without every feeling like you're repeating yourself! This workshop is perfect for those who know how to knit but need help interpreting a pattern. We'll work on a small sampler in class and get you started on your "real" blanket before you go home.
