Hello crafters. I’m not here to advertise specific yarns, so when you make this for yourself, just use whichever yarn, whichever stitch and whichever size needle suits you.
I am knitting with Garter Stitch, with 5mm bamboo knitting needles. I am using whichever wool I can get from the farmers market (because it is cheaper than in the shop).
Here is the rough idea for the single bed blanket. I was going to make a queen size blanket, but decided maybe that was a little too ambitious for my very first knitting project.
I am busy working on my first rectangle, and for this one I am using a pink wool.
You can see the colour I am using in the picture below. At the time of writing this, the strip measured 79cm.
This is going to be a long project. I’d love to know if anyone would be willing to do it with me. My aim from now on is to do 1 rectangle a week.
