Vertical striped stocking stitch blanket

April 14th, 2016

The other day I posted about a Vertical striped blankets I made

These are very easy to make; the way I did this was by knitting up a series of tubes. This made the blanket double thickness – very snug and warm!

I love knitting in the round so these were perfect, I often knit hand warmers in the round and looking at two of my children’s hand warmers together looked good.

I think I used about 22 stitches (the same as the hand warmers) though I think I used bigger needles.

Then I took the tubes and sewed them together making it look seamless- this is how I did it.

do this on both pieces of work, picking up each ‘bar’ along the row.

Repeat this till all strips are sewn

This blanket has gotten me thinking, you could use strips of loom knitting to get the same affect?
