Fleece Fringe-Tied Blankets
These are probably the easiest ever blankets to make – you’ve probably made them already. But if you haven’t here’s a quick rundown. Mine are 1 1/4 yards long, so the size is 60x45inches. First you’ll want to cut off the selvedge edge – that’s the side of the fabric. Sometime’s it’s white, but other times it blends in with your pattern – even if it blends in, cut it off – it curls and if you leave it on the blanket doesn’t look as nice.
Next cut your fringe. I cut mine along the 45in edge only, but you can do all the way around if you want. You just cut strips about 1 1/2 inches wide, 4 inches into the fabric. But I didn’t measure each cut – you can eyeball it. Then on each piece of fringe, tie a knot. These are single-layer blankets so you don’t tie strips to other strips, just make a knot on itself. Even kids can join the fun.
It’s pretty fun and super easy – a perfect project to do while you’re watching the Olympics! (I have a whole list of projects to do during my obessive Olympic watching – stay tuned to see how much I get done…)

cute blankets! I have seen these before but have never made one myself.
I finally made a bunch of those for a hospice and loved it! They are a great project and I love the fabric you used!
Thank you for this tutorial! I was looking for a basic knot blanket and this blog is the first one I’ve seen that isn’t “braided” or double layered! Thanks again!
