How to Arm Knit a Throw Blanket

arming a knit blanket is easy–the only tricky part is keeping track of your yarn!

1. Cast on the desired number of stitches.
2. Place a marker in the first stitch and knit until the marker is reached.
3. Remove the marker and continue knitting until you reach the end of the row or round, depending on how wide you want your throw blanket to be.
4. To create the “armholes,” k2, p2 from right to left around each hole made in step 2. Do not join them at the end of the round/row; they should be joined when you reach the next round/row beginning.

Finishing Touches

If your blanket is not finished, it’s time to add the finishing touches.

1) Make a border around the edge of your blanket using a provisional cast-on method or Kitchener stitch. This will make sure the blanket doesn’t unravel as you work.
2) Weave in any loose yarns using a yarn needle. This will help keep the stitches even and prevent bumps in the fabric.
3) Trim off any excess yarn and weave in any ends. You’re done!
