My First Knit From The Middle Blanket

Learn how to Knit Your First Bernat Blanket-EZ Blanket that starts from the middle and knits outward like a typical crochet solid granny square.

Understanding how to turn a corner was my obstacle but was quickly solved as I had knitted the Round Blanket-EZ Pillow. I understood how to add more loops to create a bend.

This yarn can be found at JOANN in the USA and Walmart Canada here in Canada.

The concept I have is that it’s a continuous round. So there is no stopping or starting of rounds. Once you get started, you go as big as you need to go.

Ball Counts for other Square Sizes

This is on the pattern as well in case you want to make bigger sizes. You can go as big as you need to go.

  • Baby – 32” x 32” = 2 Balls
  • Child Size Blanket – 48” x 48” = 5 Balls
  • Wheel Chair Blanket – 48” x 48” = 5 Balls
  • Throw Adult Sized or Decor – 60” x 60” = 7 Balls
  • Queen Size 84” x 84” = 14 Balls

The Trick to the Concept

Use 4 clothespins as you knit. Each pin is the corner loop. Every time you knit the corner loop indicated by the clothespin, you will place in 3 loops at the same time to form the new corner. Move up the clothespin to the new middle loop.

The clothespins give you the best easy on and off option. Also, you don’t need to count stitches.

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.
