Basic Tied Blanket

Instructions:

• Warm fleece fabric (1.5-2 yards), fun designs if possible

• Take scissors and cut small strips all around the blanket, about 1” x 5” in length, depending on the size of finished product you want.

• Tie neighboring strips together in a simple knot.

• Another variation is to use 2 pieces of fleece fabric, and tie them together with the strips in a pullover knot.
