This video is fantastic. It shows how to create a blanket from scratch. It’s for complete beginners, so you can do it even if you don’t know how to knit.

Over to Charlotte:

We got together with our pals at Knit Aid to show you how to create a super simple, super cosy blanket from knitted squares. Knit Aid is an awesome social enterprise helping knitters help others in need. At the moment they are working particularly hard on getting lots of generous knitters from around the globe to send them knitted squares, which they then sew into blankets for refugees across Europe.

To make our blanket we used Crazy Sexy Wool and 15mm / Size 19 Rosewood Needles
