Cable and Lace Baby Blanket, Throw or Coverlet: Jared Flood’s Umaro

Instructor: Amy Wentley

Saturdays: January 4, 25, and February 22, 2020; 3:00 - 5:00 pm.

The "Umaro" blanket combines a variety of techniques, including cables, lace, and knit-purl patterns, to create a symphony of texture that is soothing to knit and inviting to curl up under. With instructions to knit a range of sizes using DK weight, worsted weight, or bulky weight yarn held double, "Umaro" offers versatile possibilities for decorating your home and for making heirloom pieces for every member of your family.

Experience: This blanket is a great project for a knitter who is very comfortable with knitting and purling and is ready to learn new techniques. Amy will teach increasing, decreasing, cables, yarnovers and chart reading.
