Learn how to design and knit a blanket using any yarn from my fellow November birthday knitter/instructor,  Vickie Howell.  This tutorial is for anyone who always wanted to design a blanket but didn’t know where to start.

Vickie takes you through all the steps:

  1. Select Yarn and Needles.
  2. Choose Stitch Pattern(s).
  3. Pick Blanket Size.
  4. Establish Gauge.  (See my post on the importance of knitting a gauge square)
  5. Calculate Stitch Count.

There is even a Blanket Recipe Worksheet PDF for you to download.


Using a basic recipe, her video, written tutorial, and worksheet from Vickie Howell shows how to design and knit a blanket using any weight yarn and any stitch pattern for any sized blanket.
