Description

Techniques taught will be the plush confetti rug, where you learn to knit fabric strips right into the framework of your knitting that are recycled from clothing to make true heirlooms. Also covered will be washboard and corded rugs.

Then try your hand at knitting with fabric itself and learn a no sew method of joining the fabric strips and an easy way to cut the fabric itself to prepare it to knit with. All of these rugs are knitted in smaller pieces and then joined so it makes them very portable to work on. 


Materials Information

Bring to Class:  Worsted weight yarns at least 5 different colors in a pleasing colorway. Knitting needles to gauge, a pair of scissors and a tapestry needle.
