Online Blanket Tutorial Videos

1. Make Slip Knot
2. Cast on by making a chain of stitches/loops your desired width of blanket
3. When creating your chain, you will be working from left to right. This is the first row of your blanket.
4. To create your second row of the blanket you will work from right to left. Insert your hand into the bottom of each stitch, grab the working yarn from behind and pull it through – this will create a new stitch/loop.
5. To create your third row, you will work from left to right again inserting your hand into each stitch, grab the working yarn from behind and pull through.
6. Continue working right to left, then left to right, as you make each row until you finish your blanket.
7. You will want to leave enough yarn at the end to be able to close off (cast off) your blanket. Approximately 2m
8.Cast Off and tie a knot to secure the yarn
9. Thread the remaining yarn back through the side stitches of your blanket to hide them.
