How to Knit Twisted Model Baby Blanket with Two Skewers
Are you looking for a fun and unique way to knit a baby blanket
with two skewers? Look no further than the twisted model! This technique creates a beautiful twisted pattern that's perfect for a cozy and stylish baby blanket. Here's how to get started:
Step 1: Choose Your Yarn
The first step in knitting the twisted model
baby blanket is to choose your yarn. You'll want to select a soft, washable yarn that's easy to work with. Choose two colors of yarn that complement each other well, as the twisted pattern will really highlight the contrast between the two.
Step 2: Cast On
Once you have your yarn, it's time to cast on. Start by making a slip knot and placing it on one of the skewers. Then, holding the other skewer in your other hand, make a knit stitch by inserting the skewer into the loop on the first skewer, wrapping the yarn around the second skewer, and pulling the yarn through the loop. Repeat this process until you have the desired number of stitches for your blanket
Step 3: Knit the Rows
Now that you have your stitches, it's time to start knitting
the rows. For the twisted model, you'll be working in a 2x2 rib stitch. Hold one skewer in each hand and make a knit stitch with the base color. Then, using the contrasting color, make a purl stitch. Repeat this process all the way across the row. On the next row, make a knit stitch with the contrasting color and a purl stitch with the base color. Continue alternating these two rows to create the twisted pattern
Step 4: Create the Twisted Pattern
As you continue knitting in the 2x2 rib stitch, you'll start to see the twisted pattern emerge. The alternating knit and purl stitches create a beautiful, twisting effect that will make your baby blanket
stand out. Continue knitting in this pattern until the blanket is the desired size.
Step 5: Bind Off
Once you've knit enough rows to create the desired size for your twisted model
baby blanket, it's time to bind off. To do this, make two knit stitches, then use the first skewer to lift the first stitch over the second stitch and off the end of the skewer. Make another knit stitch, then lift the second stitch over the third stitch and off the end of the skewer. Continue this process all the way across the row, then cut the yarn and weave in the ends.
Step 6: Add the Finishing Touches
With your twisted model baby blanket now complete, you can add any finishing touches you like. For example, you might want to add some pom-poms or tassels to the corners, or sew on some ribbon for a cute touch.Final Thoughts
