- Start by making a slipknot and chaining the desired number of stitches to achieve the width of your blanket. This will depend on your preferred size and yarn weight. A recommended starting chain length is 80-100 stitches for a standard-sized baby blanket.
- Once you have the desired width, work the first row using a basic stitch, such as single crochet or half-double crochet. Choose a stitch that suits your skill level and desired texture for the blanket. Remember to maintain a consistent tension throughout the project.
- Continue working rows in your chosen stitch until the blanket reaches the desired length. You can make it as long or short as you prefer. Feel free to experiment with color changes, stripes, or other embellishments to add a personal touch.
- Once you reach the desired length, fasten off the yarn and weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle. Trim excess yarn if necessary.
