HOW TO KNIT BABY BLANKET USING BRAID KNITTING TECHNIQUE
Here you will find detailed instructions on how to make a blanket using braid knitting technique in 4 easy steps.
1 STEP. Choose blanket width.
Finished blanket width will be the same as the loop thread that you start knitting with. For this pattern, you need to choose even number of loops.
For a 80 cm width blanket count 50 loops. Start knitting with 51st.
2 STEP. First row.
Start working from right to left. For the first row use simple knit stitch. Work all the stitches as knit all long the first row.
3 STEP. Second row.
In the second row start making a braid. Start working from left to right. Cross the first two stitches so that the stitch on the right would be over the one on the left. Knit them. Repeat it with remaining loops. Cross all stitches in the same way.
Repeat 1st and 2nd rows until you reach length you want.
4 STEP. Bind-off.
Start bind-off when you finish the row with crossed stitches. Bind-off from left to right. Pass the 2nd stitch through the 1st and pull upward. Work the other stitches in the same way.
That's it - you finished your Puffy blanket!
Making this blanket could be a great relaxation after a long day. It's easy to make it, you shouldn't try to learn complicated knitting patterns and follow each stitch with great attention to the pattern. Just count loops, knit and you finish it fast.
It could be a great gift for a baby shower or an everyday blanket for your baby. This yarn is made of hypoallergenic polyester. Unlike the many other handmade yarn blankets, you can wash this in washing machine. It will look like new even after many washes. Many other knitted or crocheted garments require hand-washing because they can shrink and lose their shape. Not the one made from PUFFY YARN!
