Most of the time making this double layer blanket is spent cutting it out. I used two yards of 58/60" wide fleece. You cut 2" tabs around the entire edge of the blanket plus 2" cutouts in each corner. Then using a crochet hook or a paperclip as shown in the tutorial, you "braid" the tabs together. My finished size is approximately 68" x 56". It took me about two hours to complete it.
I forgot to take pictures of the first blanket I made that went to a friend. It was made from Arizona Cardinals fleece backed with a solid black backing. I had to disinfect my cutting table afterwards since I am a Seahawks fan, LOL! But I managed to get pictures of the second blanket I made using Seahawks fleece and a coordinating bright green solid fleece.
This no-sew blanket would make a great and quick gift for someone. If you can get fleece on sale, that makes it even better!
