November’s stitch is the blanket stitch. I love this stitch because it makes a solid, textured fabric which you can see below. This solidity is what makes it perfect for blankets. It uses a simple combination of basic stitches, so it’s great for newbies as well as oldies who need a quick, simple pattern.
The multiple for this stitch is 3, so chain any multiple of three and then follow the tutorial below until you reach your desired size.
