Knitting an Eyelet Diagonal Baby Blanket



Building on basic knitting skills, we'll learn more about "reading" your knitting, reading a yarn skein label and using a simple pattern.  We'll discuss needles and yarn qualities as well as gauge.  You will learn a basic lace pattern, easy even for beginners who are already comfortable with the knit and purl stitches. We will  be using a free pattern from Lion Brand,  "Diagonal Eyelet Baby Afghan".  

First class will entail using a lace method to increase. 
Second class, we will start knitting the actual lace section of the blanket. You will hopefully be half done the time you arrive for the third class.  
Third Class, we will start decreasing on the blanket and heading towards the home stretch.  If you aren't ready to decrease, please bring scrap yarn and needles so you can learn the decrease technique and review binding off.  

Hurray, there is almost no binding off on this blanket, so no need for a final class.  Whoever receives this blanket will be sure to love it!

Worsted yarn available for purchase here, you will need approx. 600 yards Blanket yarn selection


Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: This class is for advanced beginners. If you finished the four spa cloths or baby booties, you are an advanced beginner. You need to be comfortable knitting and purling to take this class. You will learn to do simple lace, increase, decrease and correct errors. You may also optionally learn to read a knitting chart.
Materials Included: Hard copy pattern to be given out when you register.
Requirements: 1. Pattern: We supply the pattern free to you when you sign up for the class. 2. Yarn: 600 yards of Worsted weight yarn of your choice to complete the pattern. Pattern calls for 5 balls of 120 yards each for a total of 600 yards. (50 grams is 120 yards). Machine washable is much preferred by new moms! Cotton yarn is also usable in warmer climates. 3. Needles: Size 7 or 8 circular needles with a 29-30" cable. The pattern calls for metal needles, but wood also work, especially if you knit loose or prefer to have the yarn hug the needles. If you are still struggling to find gauge, a cable and set of points for an interchangeable needle would be a good investment. 4. Small scissors to cut yarn 5. Tapestry or yarn needle (blunt point and eye large enough for your yarn) 6. Crochet hook or knitting tool with crochet hook on the end for repairing dropped stitches. 7.
