Infant Fleece Blanket Instructions-How to Make a Blanket Stitch
To make the blanket stitch, working from LEFT to RIGHT, after securing thread at point A (outer edge), insert at point B (use about half an inch spacing and half an inch height), then with thread below the needle, come out at point C directly below. Continue in this manner, noting that point C now becomes point A for the next stitch. Be sure to keep the spacing even between stitches. Pull snug, but not tight!
