Blankets need to be approximately 120 cm by 180cm or 90cm by 120cm but how you knit them is up to you. We suggest forming a knitting group making strips or blocks if you don't feel up to a whole blanket yourself. We will be organizing group events and think that these are a great way to learn to knit and share techniques. Make a blanket with your friends every small contribution counts.
