There are many options available to get the tools and materials to learn to crochet the blankets in Blanket School.
One option is to use the Warm Heart Blanket Crochet Kit which includes soft Australian Merino Wool which is fully processed in Australia. This luxury kit is $560 with the Blanket School 20% discount and includes free worldwide shipping.
We understand that this premium kit isn’t suitable for everyone and we provide support and suggest alternative yarns within our online course. Any yarn that is close to 1cm (0.4in) in diameter can be used, as well as holding together multiple strands of thinner yarn.
Blanket School students get 20% off at homelealass.com and are also able to preorder yarn that is out of stock – this means you’re at the front of the “yarn queue” and your order will be shipped before the colour is added online.
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.
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.
The 20% off and free shipping code is available to you once you join.
