If getting cozy is your jam, this virtual workshop is just the thing to help you snuggle up in style.

In this hand-knitting for beginners class, you will learn how to make a chunky knit blanket. Your teacher with Coastal Design Workshop will walk you through the steps so you can create an snuggly blanket that's like a warm hug.

Even if you have never knit before, you will be able to create this blanket and have a ton of fun making it! You don't need any needles, just your hands and our expert guidance.

DIY kits come to your door and have all the yarn you need to make this fun craft at home. You can choose your color option and there's enough yarn to create an approximately 40 x 50-inch throw blanket.

There is also an option to add on a skein of yarn to make an even larger blanket! ($15 for 1 extra, $28 for 2 extra)

At the end of your time, you'll have a cuddly blanket perfect for all your lazy Sundays.

Please make sure that you have adequate workspace for this project - whether that be a clear kitchen table, counter or a comfy spot on the floor.

In our hour together, we will get through about half of your blanket. You will learn everything you need to know to complete your blanket on your own after the workshop ends. I will also provide a recording of our class, as well as a youtube tutorial, to watch over later if you need to review any of the process!

Hey! My name is Cara and I am here to teach you how to be more creative. It's my passion to show people what they are capable of through new creative experiences - whether that's hand knitting a blanket, dyeing their own fabrics, or just throwing some paint around on a canvas. Art and creativity is defined by you, the artist. Like Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” In my workshops, you have full permission to show up as yourself, release the seriousness of life, and relax in the simple joy of childlike creativity. I am constantly in the process of curating new workshops for you - so stay tuned for exciting new events! Thanks for visiting my page and hope to see you in a workshop one day!

Loved the class, just finishing my blanket now! She went slow enough to understand and felt like everything was clear.

Pamela Seiffert Nov 2023

Very clear, patient instructions! Would love to sign up for more classes with her! Thanks!

Soleil Laurant Nov 2023

Barbara Sessa Oct 2023

Cara was amazing! She was kind, extremely easy to understand, and she made us all feel welcome! Her voice and ability to make us all feel comfortable was exceptional! I wasn’t sure if I would like a zoom class but I can’t wait to do another one! I will be gifting these classes for sure

We were so excited to have the option of a private class for our sisters weekend to celebrate some of us turning the big 4 0. Cara was upbeat and gave clear instructions. She answered specific questions and also shared tips based on her experience. It was the right balance of conversation, instruction, and tips and didn't feel rushed. We would highly recommend this class. Everyone needs at least one more soft cozy blanket. Not sure I can stop at just one though. I may have found a new hobby!

Jules Marvin Feb 2023

Very easy to follow and kind instructor! Also appreciated the ability to be able to follow back up / review tutorials.

Hannah Cho Jan 2023

Cara was an amazing instructor! She hosted 15 people private class and my team really enjoyed it. The hour long class felt like it was just 15 mins because it was so engaging and therapeutic. Cara was patient and thorough with the steps, making sure everyone can follow along. I'm looking forward to booking her other classes!

Shanna Hurley Jan 2023

Very helpful and informative instructor. By the end of the class we were about 1/4 through he blanket but had enough direction to finish on our own. Finished that same day! No one turned on their video except the instructor and us, so there wasn’t very much interaction from other students. Overall, it was a good class and we are excited to have a new skill that’s fast and easy— this will be great to make as gifts in the future.

The person who led our session was patient and didn't hesitate to show us a technique more than once, to help us understand.

Stacy Jan 2023

Enjoyed the teacher's energy. She was really patient and made sure to check in on the class, backup and re-show things, etc. Super fun.

Jeanne Jan 2023

very patient/chill instructor and beautiful yarn

Cinzia Borello Jan 2023

The teacher was really nice.
The chenille provided was so soft and a color I like!
I learned I can knit with my hands.
It was a fun experience.

Todd Jan 2023

The course is taught at a perfect pace, giving you time to knit, follow along, and ask questions. The overhead camera view was extremely helpful in understanding the flow and concept of knitting. Give it a try and start making blankets for your whole family and pets.

Trevor Friel Jan 2023

This was fun and personalized! Cara was extremely engaging and made this easy. The team enjoyed the activity overall!

Cara was so fun and nice!
It was very easy to follow her instructions and she was so patient reviewing the same info a few times for those of us that needed a repeat.
This class was a lot easier than we all thought it was going to be- so happy we booked!

Yoonie Kim Dec 2022

Cara was very communicative throughout the whole process and had such great energy! Although we didn't get to complete our blanket during the hour-long class, we were so excited with the new knowledge we gained about hand knitting that most of us completed our blankets in the next hour!
I would highly recommend this class for your next company team-bonding!

The class was enjoyable. The teacher took her time with showing the steps needed. She encouraged everyone to move at the level that they were comfortable with, while providing guidance.

Ashley Nov 2022

I loved taking this class. I was a little apprehensive since I don't have any knitting type experience. I was expecting to get frustrated and have my hands tangled up :D. However, our instructor made it so easy, and I am pretty sure I have a new hobby now! Can't wait to try this again.

Cara as a great teacher --- she took her time to make sure we were all comfortable with knowing steps, next steps, answering questions. She also was fun as engaged in our team conversations. Great activity and great instructor!

Cody Randall Sep 2022

Cara with Coastal Design Workshops was awesome! We had large group of about 175 and she did so great sending everyone their kits on time. When it came time for the class, she made it easy to learn how to complete the blanket and provided all of the resources necessary to finish the blankets after the class was over. This was our most attended craft workshop ever and it went so well!

Ashlee Gomes Sep 2022

Such a great class! We all enjoyed following along in making our own blankets. The yarn is so fluffy and soft too! Cara is a great teacher- highly recommend!

Nina Sep 2022

The class was easy to follow along and the teacher explained points to troubleshoot if we ran into any issues.

My only disappointment was that I got a cream color yarn and found out afterwards that the entire class was supposed to get grey yarn and I seemed to be the only one to not get grey. I wish I didn't find this out in the end because when I signed up for this class, I had specifically requested a dark color and to not get any shade of white yarn and so I was doubly disappointed.

Matt Sep 2022

Cara was terrific. She was engaging and made sure she was not moving too quickly. Thanks and really fun class!

Andrea Sep 2022

The teacher's camera was going in and out of focus a lot, making it hard to see about half the time. I am extremely disappointed to know our yarn came from Hobby Lobby, based on their intolerance of people's lifestyle choices. There wasn't any opportunity to talk to my team members, but I am happy to have learned a new skill assuming I can manage it on my own now that class is over!

Cara was a wonderful instructor. She was engaging, patient, and very clear in her directions. Two beginners - with zero experience - were able to create beautiful hand knit blankets. We had a great time, and love the finished product!

Darya Chernina Jun 2022

My team had fun in this class - we're an all-female team and most have no experience with knitting. Cara's pace was great and she went back several times to show us how to position our work correctly and work the loops. She also provided the session recording, which will be an excellent reference for future projects.

The only way this could have been better was if all of our global team members received their yarn - one did not and had to find her own yarn, but it was a regular kind so she knit a "miniature" blanket of sorts.

Annalise Crescenzo Apr 2022

Such an amazing & relaxing workshop! Cara was super helpful throughout the entire session. She was able to provide clear instructions for each step and was able to help solve any mistakes participants might’ve made. Everyone was able to knit their blanket even though half of the participants have never knit before. My team really enjoyed this easily and can’t wait to try others!

Sheila Gartland Apr 2022

Cara was great! We love our new blankets and what we learned. Fun way to spend an afternoon.

Thank you Cara

Jessica Lu Mar 2022

We did this class for a corporate team building event virtually and Cara was such a lovely instructor. Everyone really enjoyed the event and Cara gave some great tips and advice. Also loved how fluffy the yarn was! If we have another company team event, I think we'll do the pillows next :)

Deb McGuire Mar 2022

This was super fun! I was clearly the remedial student in the class as I had to un-do part of my work and re-do it, but the teacher walked me through it and my project looks good. The instructor provided a video of the class to refer to as I finish it later. The teacher was patient and offered easy to understand directions and encouragement.

Youna Song Mar 2022

We had a great time with this class (group of 12 people) for a team event. Everything went smoothly - we had fun choosing our yarn colors, the materials arrived on time with clear tracking information, and Cara was very clear/helpful with repeating any steps during the class. Would recommend for sure!

Faith Mar 2022

Such an informative and fun class to take with loved ones! I like how you can select your yarn, and it was so easy to do at home. Definitely a skill I will continue to use!

Alvina Andrzejewski Feb 2022

Cara was a great instructor and made our teambuilding really relaxing and fun! She was also very flexible, quick to respond, and understanding when we had to move the date/time due to scheduling conflicts with a group size of 8 people. Our yarn arrived well in advance and tracking numbers were provided. It was an overall easy and pleasant experience, and we're all determined to create blankets for office holiday gifts this year. Thanks, Cara!

Amy Peck Feb 2022

Cara was awesome! Friends and family had a really great time-Cara is very warm and friendly and an excellent teacher. Looking forward to taking more classes with Cara and ClassBento.

Mary Wantorek Feb 2022

Trisha Pipkins Jan 2022

Cara did a great job showing patience with our group and repeating her work and instruction to make sure everyone was keeping up. She had a really positive energy that made everyone feel successful in our work! The yarn is super soft and we’re all very excited about completing our finished blankets One thing that would have been helpful to know before the class was that everyone needed to set up in an area that had a flat workspace - we had to spend the first few minutes with some people moving their laptops etc in order to have the right space to work.

Thank you Cara! We had a wonderful time participating in your class. Our team would like to know what other classes you teach! We got loads of photos of our team with their blankets and kiddos/furry friends enjoying snuggling over the weekend. Thank you so much for meeting with us!
