Thrummed slippers… could there be anything cozier? Thrumming is a technique of using small bits of roving (unspun wool) to create a knitted accessory with a fluffy, warm inner layer. In this 4 hour class held over 2 weeks, you will learn how to add thrums to a slipper as it is knit.
Here is what you will learn in the class:
- Making thrums
- Adding thrums to knitted item
- Picking up stitches
- Short rows
- Magic loop
Skill Level required: Advanced beginner knitter – intermediate knitter. Must be comfortable knitting and purling and with basic increases and decreases.
Materials (please ensure that all materials are purchased prior to class and yarn is wound into a ball (if purchased as a skein):
- Cadeautje pattern by Ysolda Teague (pattern is available on Ravelry for approx. $7). Link to pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/cadeautje
- Sturdy Chunky wool yarn (Not Superwash) between 105-255 m depending on size of slipper
- 30-115g of Fibre (Not Superwash) for thrums (depending on size of slipper and size of thrums made). It is difficult to predict the exact amount needed, please note, Yarn Twisters will supply the material for the thrums!
- 5mm (US 7) needles with a cable long enough for magic loop. I suggest a minimum of 100cm (40”).
- Darning needle for weaving in ends
