QUICK QUESTION //
Q // Want to keep up to date with plump & co news?
Q // What is “blocking” and how do I do it?
A // Pop your piece in your top loading washing machine and fill it up with cold water only with no washing power. Stop the machine as soon as it is full and before any agitation, open the lid and dunk the blanket up and down then hit spin. Once that is complete take your piece out and lay it out flat on a towel on the floor and not in direct sunlight. Manipulate it to the finished shape you want and let it dry naturally on a flat surface. Blocking is not a requirement, but we recommend it as a nice finishing technique.
Q // How many bumps do I need to make a blanket?
A // To knit a small to medium-sized blanket requires approximately 2-4 bumps. A large to extra-large blanket requires approximately 5+ bumps. Everyone's tension is very different, so the the tighter you knit, the more yarn is required, as opposed to a loosey-goosey knitter who can make a bigger blanket from less yarn. By adding tassels to your blanket it makes it feel larger. Be sure to "block" your blanket to grow your piece and create a beautiful finish.
Q // Can I use plump & co yarn to make baby blankets?
A // We don't recommend using chunky yarn for baby gifts. For babies we recommend using baby yarns that you will find in most knitting stores and that we will eventually have in our collection.
Q // How do I cast on, cast off, make tassels, join etc?
A // Check out our knitting tips.
Q // When is a plump & co workshop coming to my town?
A // If you are keen to knit with us but can’t see any tickets available for a workshop near you HERE, please enter your details on the contact us page HERE with WORKSHOP // (ENTER LOCATION) and we will add you to our pre alert mailing list or email us at email@example.com with your name, contact details and location and we'll alert you as soon as we announce a workshop near you. Please note that a space in a workshop will not be reserved until full payment is received.
Q // I have never knitted before. Can I still come to a workshop?
A // Absolutely! Our workshops cater to a range of knitters, from beginners to speedy knitters. Everyone can achieve something at our workshops.
Q// What can I expect to achieve in a workshop?
A // You can expect to achieve some sort of creation in our workshop. Many people take their projects home on the needles and extra bumps of wool, which they purchase after the class, to finish later or start their next project. You will also learn about our casting on and joining techniques and how to care for the wool. Most people come in as strangers and leave with new friends. We like this to be a fun, mindful experience, so we don't encourage people to strain themselves when getting used to this scale of knitting.
Q // Can I come along with my child?
A // You are more than welcome to come along with your children over the age of 12 years old, if they are booked & paid to attend the workshop with you. Due to the intimacy and limited space at our venues, please do not bring children to attend the workshop as an observer.
Q // I'd rather crochet.
A // Great! Let us know and we'll organise a crochet workshop near you!
Q // I'd like to treat a friend to a plump & co workshop.
