Here are the quick and easy steps in making blankets

Note: YANA Cancer Comfort provides the fleece material and they come pre-cut

  • Step 1: Place one solid piece and one patterned piece of material flat, one on top of the other
  • Step 2: Find the corners and tie them first, so that the blanket lines up.
  • Step 3: Continue tying all fringe edges. Tie one solid and one pattern fringe together two times each until you’ve completed the whole blanket.
