no name blanket.

This specific blanket has no name. I usually name my projects but this is just a welcome home present so... This was a very easy blanket to make. I got my idea from http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/60681A.html Lion Brand Fast Finish Throw but I added alot of changes because i wasnt satisfied with every thing. Yes, I am giving half credit to lion brand.

Needles: size 50 ,25 mm

Yarn:Red Heart 7 oz. 4 colors of your choice. (Red heart is cheaper,and it comes in bigger skeins than Jiffy)

Cast on 40 sts (in any method)

Row 1-4 Stockinette Stitch (knit 1 row, purl 1 row,repeat)

(RS)Row 5&6:purl

(RS)row 7:knit

(WS)Row 8: purl

Note: On row 5 when you purled on the RS it made a natural crease

Row 9(Rs)Fold in half and knit the cast on stitches.

Row 10: purl

Row 11:knit

continue rows 10 and 11(stockinette stitch) until blanket is desired length (52 in.)

Repeat rows 5-8 BIND OFF loosely.

Fold the end of the blanket in half, at the RS purl row and sew.(video avalible upon request)

Optional Tassles:

Cut four 16 in pieces of yarn, fold the yarn in half. Find a stitch on the end that you would like to tassle and attach it.


Coming soon so please be patient!
