No Sew Fleece Blanket

how to make a knotted blanket


  • 1 1/2 yards print fleece
  • 1 1/2 yards solid contrasting fleece

For a larger blanket, use two yards each of the print and solid fleece.

  1. Lay the two pieces of fleece out so that the wrong sides are together (both right sides are facing out) and the edges are even.  If the edges are not even, trim the larger piece of fleece so that both pieces are even. Cut off the selvage edge from the both pieces.
  2. Cut out a 6" square from each corner.   On all four sides, cut slits all the way around that are 6" deep and approximately 1 1/2" apart.  You should cut through both layers of fleece at one time.
  3. Cutting the slits in the edges makes fringe.  Since you cut through both layers of fleece at the same time, the fringe will be in pairs.  Knot each pair in an overhand knot*.  The knot should be close to the actual blanket.  Continue knotting each of the pairs all the way around

*To tie an overhand knot, keep the two pieces of fleece together (as it they were one piece) and wrap them around your finger forming a loop.  Then, pass the ends through the loop you made and pull taught.

Cut out a 6" square from each corner.
