We have made it to the last week of the 2019 Bernat Stitchalong. Last week we finished up all the heavy lifting and this week we will be adding the finishing touches to the blanket. Adding tassels and pom poms really make the blanket pop! Working along with me in the FREE pattern to finish your blanket.

About the 2019 Bernat Stitchalong:
For our stitch along we will be making a beautiful Knit Festive Textures Afghan. Since this is a stitch along there will be both a knit and crochet version available for you. Both the knit and crochet versions are very similar and you will enjoy either pattern that you decide to go with. I will be teaching and hosting the knit blanket only.
This blanket is knit with Bernat Blanket yarn in very modern colors. But you can choose any color combination you wish to make yours match your home.
This is a 6 week knit-along hosted by Marly Bird. The crochet-along is hosted by Mikey at The Crochet Crowd.

Make a Cowl:
You might have noticed that the sample that I am making in the video is smaller than the blanket that you are working on. Rather than make the whole blanket in the video I took a smaller section and made a cowl from the pattern.
If you want to follow along with the smaller sample and make a cowl with me follow along here for my stitch counts.
