I make a full sized blanket for someone in my family every Christmas. This is the blanket I made for my mother-in-law in 2007. 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.
Looks great! She looks like she's enjoying it, too. :)
Thank you!
