CAUTION: This pattern does produce quite a few ends to weave in. My tip is to weave them in as you go. I stop about every 10 inches into the blanket to weave in my ends so that I don’t save them all for the end. Watch the video to see my cautionary tale if you don’t follow my tip!
This blanket is made in two parts. Starting with the mesh, the pattern has you making the base of the pattern first. After making the filet fabric you will make chains to weave into the mesh. Watch the video to see how I complete this technique.
