Join us for a Summer Block Party!

Block party as in Afghan blocks!

Who wants to make an afghan? It’s summer, you say? Challenge yourself with different techniques with individual blocks. Work on small projects this summer and then seam them together for a full size afghan later this fall.

Don’t want to make a blanket? You can use knitted blocks for a variety of projects. Make a:
pillow
bag
wall hanging
shawl
jacket
skirt
Possibilities are endless!

Prerequisites: The student must be able to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off.

Skills Taught: This is a KAL but also a class. You get to pick what block you want to make with help available. Skills learned depend on the afghan blocks chosen.

KAL/CAL/WAL Policies:
Although we would love to see you at the group sessions, you can participate from anywhere! This KAL is free to participate in, but as with all classes, KALs/CALs/WALs, you must use yarns purchased from our store to join in store. Purchasing supplies and patterns supports designers and your LYS.

Dates:
Tuesdays from noon – 2pm and
Saturdays from 10a – noon
in July and August
Times can change depending on interest!

Cost: $5.00 per session or purchase 5 sessions for $20.00

I personally have this book and love it! I will be making a few blocks from it.

The Great American Afghan Book – This is a classic afghan square book. It is out of print and a little harder to find.
