Margaret Holzmann Workshop

Wednesday, February 8 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm

Margaret Holzmann Workshop: Camp Along Blanket

Tree detail

Learn how to make this wonderful blanket of colorful campers. In this 5-hour workshop, we will learn how to make the two blocks that are the basis of the Camp Along blanket: the camper and the tree, and how to join them into strips, and how to knit the strips together. We will learn how to pick up and knit on previously completed edges, how to use a 3-needle bind off to create shapes, intarsia for garter stitch, chain stitch embroidery, and the best method for sewing on embellishments. Collectively, these skills will enable you to complete this blanket and Margaret’s extensive collection of knitted blanket patterns.
