About your teacher

Hi, I’m Lynda! I’m a chunky crochet designer and teacher and I’m from Ballarat, Australia.

I’m passionate about effortless design and crocheting easily. I know you want to spend your time relaxing and making beautiful things, not fumbling around with instructions you don’t understand and making blankets that look “okay”.

I discovered the healing and relaxing powers of crochet after I was knocked down by chronic fatigue in 2012. Crochet helped me to escape to my happy place and rebuild my life.

You’ve got questions?

Blanket School is suitable for everyone, regardless of your crochet skills. If you’re new to crochet, then start with the Warm Heart Blanket to master the fundamentals of chunky crochet. Otherwise, you have the option of making any of the blankets.

There are 16 different Masterclasses available on a range of crochet and creativity topics for example – blocking, different types of crochet hooks, reading crochet patterns and charts, storing your yarn and crocheting.

We have 2 live Q&A Webinars each week (Tuesday at 7pm AEST and Thursday at 12noon AEST) that are recorded and have a Facebook Group where you can ask for help at any time.

The 20% off and free shipping code is available to you once you join.

Yes, you can use any yarn to crochet your chunky blankets. For the Warm Heart Blanket, you’ll need at least 400m of yarn that is about 1cm (0.4in) in diameter. We’ve tested a range of yarns for suitability and this list is available in Blanket School.

Yes, you have access to all 4 (with more being added) of the Blanket Classes and have the choice of working at your own pace or joining in with the group.
