The two lengths of 54 inch fleece were layered together, with the right sides facing outwards.
A line was traced along the length of each side, approximately one inch in from the edges...
...and used as a guide to cut off the selvages.
Next, a four inch square was cut from each corner.
Then four inch long cuts were made along all four sides of the fleece, at approximately one inch intervals.
Every other length was knotted...
...and then the blanket was turned over and the remaining lengths were knotted. Doing this results in the tie color alternating from tie to tie. (In theory. I think we messed up here and there, but it doesn't matter!)
Cozy and warm, Grandma will love this one!
