Learn to knit with your arms by using chunky yarn from merino wool or cotton.

What will I learn in this class?
In this two-session series, students learn how to use chunky yarn to knit a 50cm-by-50cm mat by using only their arms. This new technique can be used to make decorative throws or small blankets.  Participants will select the yarn type and color to create their personal mat.
