How to Make A Throw Blanket
Making a throw blanket is a great way to use up leftover yarn. There are a few things you’ll need to get started: a piece of fabric that’s about twice the width of the throw blanket you want, yarn for the border and batting, and a crochet hook.
To make the blanket itself, start by crocheting a chain long enough to go around the width of your fabric. Then, work single Crochet stitches all around the chain. When you get to the end of the chain, tie it off and cut it short.
Next, fold your fabric in half so that your crocheted chain is now inside out. Use a needle and thread to sew along one edge of the folded fabric, pulling tight as you go. Repeat on the other side. Trim any excess fabric or sewing away from your stitching with scissors.
Now it’s time to add some border! Start by chaining two or three times more than needed for your desired length (this will be based on how wide your stitch pattern is). Work single Crochet stitches in each ch-3 space across the top of your blanket (don’t leave any spaces between stitches). When you reach the end of your row, tie off and cut off any extra yarn.
Finally, it’s time for the finishing touches! Weave in any loose ends using a crochet hook and matching yarn color. And there you have it! A beautiful throw blanket made with just a little bit
How much yarn should you use to make a throw blanket? This is a question that can be difficult to answer, as it depends on the size of the blanket, the type of yarn you are using, and your knitting speed. Generally speaking, however, you will want to use between 100 and 200 yards of yarn per square foot of fabric.
