Building Blocks KAL - $5

Saturday, March 3rd; 2-4p - Block 1

We're super excited to begin this block-of-the-month blanket knit-along! The Building Blocks blanket was designed specifically to grow your knitting skills. The first blocks reinforce basic stitches before you make your way through several major techniques in later blocks, like cables and lace. Each block will build your confidence!

We will be meeting once a month for 2 hours. Half of the time will be spent covering the current block's techniques and construction. The other half of the time will be spent on questions or troubleshooting. While we recommend starting at the first block with us, you are free to jump in whenever you're ready! 

Receive the Building Blocks book for free when you sign up and purchase all of your yarn!
