These blankets can be knit in all garter stitch, nothing fancy. It's a good mindless knitting project to do while you're watching tv. If you've ever done crafts when you were a kid, you probably used felt. It comes in various colors in sheets at the craft store. This is what your knitting will be like after it's felted. You can cut it and it won't unravel. I like to use up my tiny remnants of wool yarn this way. I'll knit maybe a five by seven rectangle in all garter stitch and felt it so it shrinks. These make great scrubbies for washing dishes. You can disinfect them better than those foam sponges. Those always retain germs. I feel I'm helping the environment because I'm rewashing them and not using paper towels to clean up the counters.
