Christmas Blanket 2006

Introduction: Christmas Blanket 2006

I make a full sized blanket for someone in my family every Christmas. This is the blanket I made for my husband's grandmother in 2006. I like Lion's Brand Homespun yarn because it softens-up after washing and using fabric softener. The whole blanket is done using size 13 needles and garter stiching (knit only). There isn't a pattern to follow except for keeping every square the same size, and deciding on what color scheme. I used to sew the squares together, but now I like to knit them together as I progress so that the blankets are stronger. You can make this type of blanket as big or as small as you want (this looks smaller as it's laying on a king-sized bed).
