What was your inspiration?
I wanted to make a few projects that didn't involve working a foundation chain, as a way to introduce sewers and knitters to the craft. The foundation chain can be the most frustrating part, so this blanket requires none! Instead, we work into holes we poked directly into the fleece edge. (The scalloped edging shown is from the pillowcase project, also in the course).
What are you most proud of?
I love how fast and easy these are to make, and I took my time finding the perfect fleece and yarn combination. You can make one of these in about an hour--perfect for twins and triplets!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be sure to use fleece fabric-- it doesn't fray on the edges. Other types of fabrics won't hold up, but fleece is perfect for this project.
