Build A Blanket

Knit and crochet blanket.

I always have to have something in my hands. I started this last night. It is a good way to incorporate a multitude of different stitches. In the center is a 7″ granny square. At the top on the needle is afghan stitch. On the left and knitted is garter stitch. On the bottom and knitted is moss stitch. On the right and knitted is basket weave.

I started with granny square and then knitted the garter stitch and attached to the granny square. I then picked up stitches across both to do the moss stitch then worked around and picked up stitches on the right side to do the basket weave and finally the afghan stitch in like manner.

You can use any combination of stitches as long as your crochet and knitting needles are compatible and produce similar sized stitches.

When you get your desired width then just add strips on top and bottom to get desired length.

Happy stitching!

Strips are 4″ wide.
