Mystery Blanket 2017

Now full.

Our Mystery Blanket course is a project developed over a number of years to provide extra help and tuition to those wanting to improve their knitting skills in an enjoyable social group.

Meeting once a month throughout the year we tackle a different knitting skill including cabling, Fair Isle and lace designs, to produce a collection of squares to make your own individual blanket. I will also show you how to sew the squares together neatly and add a cable border, giving you a beautiful, cosy blanket in time for Christmas.

We use a sumptuous alpaca yarn, which comes in a wide range of colours, so everyones blanket will be individual to their own taste. 

The course is 12 sessions, once a month, on a Saturday.

£30 per session inc materials.

 

All classes must be booked and paid for in advance to secure places. We keep our classes small to ensure personal tuition, therefore refund of payment for cancellations will only be given if the place is filled by another student.

We reserve the right to cancel the class if circumstances demand it, but full refunds will be given in this situation.
