What stitch should I use to knit a blanket?
If you plan to make a loose blanket or scarf, choose a simple stitch pattern like garter stitch (knit all stitches in every row), simple ribbing (knit 1/2/3 etc stitches, purl 1/2/3 etc stitches) or seed stitch (known as moss stitch in the UK).
How do you knit a double sided blanket?
What size needles do I need to knit a blanket?
The most common lengths used are 16”, 24”, 32”, and 40”. These needles work well for knitting blankets. However, unless you always knit the same blanket with the same yarn, you’ll need to buy a different needle for each blanket you make. This can get expensive and create storage issues for all the needles you buy.
How many stitches and rows do you need for a blanket?
If you want a medium sized blanket, then try casting on 120 stitches. For a large lap blanket, cast on 160 stitches. For an extra-large lap blanket, cast on 200 stitches.
What knitting needles should a beginner use?
Medium sizes are generally the best for beginners. This means you should look for a width size of six (4mm), seven (4.5mm), or eight (5mm). For length, a 10-inch needle is usually a good starter size because they’ll be small enough to handle easily.
Can I use straight needles to knit a blanket?
You can make a blanket on either long straight needles or circular needles. If using straight needles, make sure they are long enough to accommodate the entire width of the blanket without bunching up too much. This is probably the best choice for beginners, because it makes it easy to handle the needles.
Are bamboo or metal knitting needles better?
For beginner knitters, bamboo is our top choice. Bamboo needles are easier to handle than metal or other woods, because the stitches don’t slip off the needles. Wood needles are an excellent choice for more experienced knitters, who want a slicker choice than bamboo, but don’t like the clanking of metal.
Do you have to use circular knitting needles for a blanket?
I recommend ALWAYS using circular needles when knitting a blanket. You will still knit back-and-forth in rows, but the weight of the numerous stitches and growing fabric will rest on your lap as you work, rather than your wrists having to bear the strain.
What is moss stitch?
Moss stitch, along with its cousin the seed stitch, is a classic textured knitting stitch. It’s made by alternating knits and purls every stitch and changing their location after two rows. This stitch produces an almost shifted ribbing or tiny basketweave patterned fabric.

What is the difference between Moss stitch and Seed stitch?
Both are easy to learn and easy to remember. So what’s the difference between seed stitch vs moss stitch? Seed stitch involves one row of knit, purl followed by one row of purl, knit. Moss stitch, on the other hand, uses two rows of knit, purl before switching to two rows of purl, knit.
Do you need an odd number of stitches for moss stitch?
You can knit basic moss stitch on an odd or even number of stitches. Cast on an odd number of stitches, work K1, P1 to the end of the row, finishing with a knit stitch. Start the next row with a knit stitch, so that your fabric shows purl ‘bumps’ above and below every ‘V’ stitch.
