improve your crocheting while making beautiful chunky blankets
You’re busy and the instructions are just so hard to follow.
To use your limited time wisely and easily crochet beautiful blankets. Blankets that will be loved and used for many, many years.
To relax with each stitch, and see beauty come to life in front of you.
Hi, I’m Lynda from Homelea Lass and I’m an Australian crochet designer and expert teacher.
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.
What you need to crochet your first chunky blanket. Mindful creating process. Turn your yarn skeins into balls.
How to start. How to hold the crochet hook and yarn. Chain and treble stitches. How to get neat and even edges.
Check you’re doing it right. Double crochet stitches. Straight edges. Join yarn seamlessly. Weave in the starting end.
Lots more practice. How to count stitches. Fasten off. Weave in the final end.
How to care for your chunky blankets.
One option is to use the Warm Heart Blanket Crochet Kit which includes premium Australian Merino Wool which is fully grown and processed in Australia. This luxury kit is $480 with the Blanket School 20% discount and includes free worldwide shipping.
We understand that the Warm Heart Blanket Crochet 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.
We’ll guide you through making the Warm Heart Blanket over 25 days. All the video tutorials are immediately available with your free membership so you’re able to make it as quickly, or slowly, as you like.
Once you finish your Warm Heart Blanket you have the option of upgrading to a Premium Membership and join our other students in making a different blanket – we’re always making something new!
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 over 20 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.
