About Your Host

The Black Squirrel is Berkeley's only local yarn shop! We are a highly curated shop, specializing in indie dyed yarns; hand-painted beauties you won't find anywhere else.

What we'll do

Learn how to make a dreamy super thick and cozy knit blanket out of wool roving, plus tips and techniques for caring for these blankets. No knitting experience required! Knit and crochet designer Cara Corey will show you how to use a “table knitting” technique, forming the stitches with your hands rather than using knitting needles. The yarn we provide is enough wool roving to make a blanket approximately 30×50 inches in size with a lot of stretch. In this class you will also learn: - How to source additional wool roving. - How to graft ends together by needle felting. - How to care for the wool, and use felting to prevent it from fuzzing too much. - Where to buy giant knitting needles (if you decide you want them) and how to make your own giant needles out of PVC pipe. *Cancellation Policy* You must cancel your class reservation at least 72 hours in advance in order to receive a full refund. Classes cancelled after the 72 hour limit has passed will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis, either by partial refund or by rescheduling.
