Chunky Knit Blanket Workshop @ AR Workshop Tallahassee
Sep 25 all-day
Chunky Knit Blanket Workshop @ AR Workshop Tallahassee | Tallahassee | Florida | United States

It’s the perfect time to register for our Chunky Knit Blanket Workshop!
We are now offering more styles to cuddle, our classic Chunky Knit Blanket and our NEW Chunky Cable Knit Blanket.  In this workshop, we will guide you step-by-step through the hand knitting process to create a super cozy, one-of-a-kind blanket. The blankets requires no needles and knitting experience! For both style blankets, you will receive enough chunky chenille yarn to make an (approximately) 40″ x 50″ blanket. The finished size may vary depending on your individual hand-knitting process. This is an advanced project and intended for guests aged 15 and up. All materials and instruction are included. 
BYO wine or beer to sip and enjoy during the workshop.
PLEASE NOTE: You will be able to choose your yarn colors when you arrive for your workshop. We offer a selection of neutral colors (i.e gray, cream, and tan) along with a few other color choices. Colors may be limited and are available on a first come, first serve basis.
