Sampler Blanket / Scarf - 7 week course 4th June - 16th July

Dates: 4th June – 16th July (7 weeks)
Time: Tuesdays 7pm – 8pm
Venue: Wyeside Arts Centre, Builth Wells
Cost: £56

 This project is suitable for anyone who knows the basics of crochet.

You will need to bring 5 different colours of the yarn of your choice, acrylic is fine.  Please let me know if you haven’t got any as I have some available to buy or you may be able to get some from Mary and Pete at the Groe Market on Fridays in Builth.

You’ll also need a 4mm hook, yarn needle and stitch markers.

How much yarn will you need?  The pattern calls for 12 balls of 100g acrylic yarn to make the blanket, this makes 25 squares and a blanket about 30” square depending on your tension.  I’m thinking that you’ll need less yarn than that but you may want a bigger blanket!

On this course you will learn:

  • 5 different stitch patterns including popcorns, clusters, a surface zigzag, a grouped treble pattern and a textural pattern
  • How to join your squares together
  • How to crochet a border around your project
  • How to make tassles (if you opt for making a scarf instead)

Pay in full or leave a 50% deposit to book your place, with the remainder to be paid before the first lesson.
