This spread (throw) is made from dish towels (12"X20"). It takes about 32 towels for a full size spread. The Stitch is a "blanket stitch".
Yarn Darner Needle (large eyed needle)
I did not try to match the plaid I wanted an old fashion country look. This is a great sit and watch TV project just repetitive work.
Step 1: Making A Blanket Stitch
Thread needle with about 3 yards (more or less ) of yarn anymore might be to much to handle. Knot one end of yarn. Pull yarn through to make blanket stitch. (see pictures)
Pin and sew two towels together long sides using the blanket stitch, continue adding another towel until you have one row of towels the length of the bed. There are eight in towels in each of theses rows. I made four sets of eight . (32 towels)
Watch your stitches when adding the next towel so your stitches all go in the same direction.
Step 2: Finishing Stitches
When coming to the end of the yarn, slide needle through about the last inch to inch and one half of previous stitches so that are no bulky knots. (see pictures) clip yarn close so that there are no tails.
Step 3: Finish
Option: You can finish off your spread by going around the all the outer edges with a blanket stitch.
Warm and cozy
