How many stitches do I need for a medium blanket? And how many balls of wool will I need?
Kind regards

Hi Samantha, here’s a super helpful article I wrote to help with gauging how much yarn you’ll need, https://www.trulymajestic.com/much-yarn-arm-knit-blanket/ and for a medium blanket I usually cast on 17 stitches, however everyones arms are different sizes so you may need a bit more or less.

I hope that helps!
Happy Arm Knitting,

So about 21-22 stitches for a large blanket?

Yes that would be about right. However it all depends on how big or small your arms are. You might want to first do a chain cast on and see how long you want your blanket. If it’s not as wide as you want it just add another stitch or two.
