How to Make Woodland Baby Blanket

Posted on Baby Blanket

Woodland baby blanket can also be called lap blankets, and are commonly used in the living areas of the home, as opposed to the bedroom. These blankets are smaller than those used on beds, and can be interior decor accents, which are used to protect furniture from daily wear, and even for heat. Knitting throw blankets can take a while, because they are much larger than sweaters, scarves and other garments. However, blanket projects can be great for beginners, as they offer great opportunities to practice the art of knitting.


Check your meter. Knit a meter box with your chosen yarn and needles. For the highest degree of accuracy, stick a test flap at least 4 inches by 4 inches. Use the tape measure to determine the number of meshes per inch in the box. Determine the size of your woodland baby blanket and calculate your initial setup. Many throw blankets are about 48 by 60 inches. To determine your initial setup, multiply the number of meshes per inch in your meter of the desired width of the blanket. For example, if your meter is 3 meshes per inch, and your blanket is 48 inches wide, you must throw 144 meshes. A circular knitting needle with a long cable that is necessary to stick the felt in one piece. The long cable will keep the work and allows you to rest the felt going on in the knee.

Put and knit. Loosely loosen the required number of stitches. In the case of our example, knitting begins in a wide rib pattern. Because the stitches are divisible by 12, knit six stitches and knit six stitches. Repeat on each row, wrap off the stitches and knit the knitted stitches as they are shown. Knit until you have reached the desired length for your woodland baby blanket. Mask loosely using any technique you are comfortable with. Cut the yarn, giving a 10-inch tail. Use your weave needle; weave at the ends of the yarn. Because you have used many balls of yarn for felt, you can have a large number of ends weave in. Block the blanket. Although some types of yarns, such as acrylic and other artificial fibers generally do not need blockage, any cotton or animal fibers, including mixtures, will need to be blocked to open up Ribbing. Because the throwing felt is so big, you need to block it either on towels like on the floor or on the bed.

Put towels on a flat surface and put blankets flat on them. Use either a spray bottle or an iron on the steam setting to dampen the throw. Carefully shape rolls, be sure to open ribs slightly until it meets you’re originally planned for dimensions. Allow the felt to dry completely before moving. Velvet knitting is a way for artisans to quickly and easily create handmade items. No previous knitting knowledge is required and all necessary materials are available at local craft shops or online.
