Blanket Lining?
Hello

I have been searching...but I can't seem to find an article on it...

I am working on an afghan, that I think I would like to line afterward...

Anyone know of a good article...or a place to start with it?

Thanks

I'd be hesitant to do that in case one side or the other shrank or stretched and cause puckering, but if you do I suggest washing and machine drying the fabric so it preshrinks. Then cut the lining about 1 inch larger than the area you want to fit. Then iron the edges over and and hand tack it on. Maybe tack it in the middle a few places, too.

It is a blanket done in many squares....so I am sure I can tack it in between every square...just to make it look good on either side....

I will take a look at it when I am done and see if it is necessary...

I just don't like the look of end popping out everywhere...and this one has BIG potential to do so....*smiles*

I agree. I don't like the ends popping out. The only place I've had it be a problem was with cotton dishcloths, but after several washings they don't seem to be an issue anymore.

Squares could be secured in the corners like a quilt so that will probably work fine.

I just found these and they may give you some different ideas about lining.

I have done some quilting and I have knitted soooo many afghans but never thought about combining them. I will have to try that one day. Jan the patterns were very interesting. Thanks.

Well the links were more for seeing how they lined the blankets, but I'm glad you liked them.
