Factors Affecting Yarn Quantity

How to Make Bernat Blanket

Tools and Materials

Step-by-Step Knitting Instructions

  1. Prepare Your Yarn: Start by selecting your yarn skeins. If using multiple colors, plan your color transitions.
  2. Casting On: Make a slip knot and place it on your needle. Cast on the number of stitches required for your desired width. For a typical throw, casting on 70 stitches is a good start.
  3. Knitting the Body:
    • Row 1: Knit all stitches.
    • Row 2: Purl all stitches if using a stockinette stitch. Repeat these rows until you reach your desired length.
    • For a garter stitch, simply knit all rows.
  4. Adding Texture or Color Changes: If desired, introduce texture by changing the stitch or incorporate stripes by switching colors at the end of a row.
  5. Casting Off: Once your blanket reaches the required length, cast off to secure the stitches. Cut your yarn, leaving a six-inch tail. Thread this tail through the last loop and pull to tighten.
  6. Finishing Touches: Weave in any loose ends with a yarn needle. Optionally, add a border using a crochet hook and single crochet stitch for a neat finish.
