Finally, cut the yarn with a bit of excess and pull it through the last loop to form a knot. I also spent a large part of the change trying to find the right wool for this project. Use your index finger to locate your second loop through this additional loop to find the top of that loop. A throw blanket is typically approximately 50 inches wide and 60 inches long.
I wanted to make a throw size blanket instead of a baby blanket, so I looked up the standard dimensions for a throw.
How much yarn do I need for a finger knit blanket?
Calculations vary slightly depending on whether you’re buying a “super bulky” (or “jumbo”) yarn. Start your next skein of yarn in the first loop on the left, pull the loops through again from the back, and turn the piece over when you reach the end of the row. If you are using regular synthetic yarn or chunky chenille or something like that, don’t pay attention to the weight, just use the length in the chart. In particular, coarse wool yarns are unspun and very cushion-like, while coarse yarn blends are better processed and compacted — yet they are measured in the same way by thickness.
