If you can knit a scarf, you can make a blanket. (You don't even need to add or reduce stitches!) This coverlet is made from 12 individually knit rectangles of natural-colored wool, sewn together with a contrasting yarn, so the seams show.

Each product we feature has been independently selected and reviewed by our editorial team. If you make a purchase using the links included, we may earn commission.
Read step by step instructions after the video.

Before you begin, learn how to knit. This project blends knitting and crocheting techniques, since you will finish the knit blanket's trim with a single crochet. The process used to make this blanket is easy to adapt to make a throw for a sofa or even a baby blanket. Adjust needle size as necessary to obtain correct gauge.
