Let's construct a blanket

Depending on the desired size of your blanket, there are 2 ways to approach knitting it on your machine:

Knit it one piece. Depending on your gauge and the number of needles available on your machine. You can knit baby blankets, Kids blankets and lap robes.

Knit in panels or sections. Create blankets in ANY width with multiple panels. Use the panels as design elements. Create "invisible" seams or use the joining seams as design elements.
