… a classic tartan pattern in simple running stitch transforms a plain blanket for cosy nights and story telling …
You will need
Scraps of thick wool yarns (in 4 or 5 different colours)
With a contrasting yarn, run a second row of stitching 1cm from the first.
Repeating steps 1 & 2, do the same with the length of your blanket, thus dividing it into quarters.
At this point you can slowly build up your tartan stitching across the whole of your blanket by measuring away from the central rows of sewing.
Finish off your yarn ends by running your mattress needle through the blanket’s hem and cut flush.
