How many stitches do I need for a medium blanket? And how many balls of wool will I need? Kind regards Samantha
Hi Samantha, here’s a super helpful article I wrote to help with gauging how much yarn you’ll need, http://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, Stacy
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.
I want a queen size blanket. How many yards of yarn would I need ?
If you check out this chart it should help you calculate how many yards for how large of a blanket. https://trulymajestic.com/much-yarn-arm-knit-blanket/
How many stitches should i cast on for an extra large blanket?
Hi Kalyn, Sorry for the delay, I missed this comment. For any size blanket you should cast on a chain of the width you want. Because everyone’s arms are different sizes it actually varies quite a bit how many stitches you’ll need. So if you need a blanket 60″ wide, you’ll need to make a chain until it’s 60″ long, and then put your loops into the dashes on the back of the chain. I hope that helps!
Hi how many ball needed to make the extra large blanket it that with the 250g balls thanks
Hi Tracy, Check out my chart here https://trulymajestic.com/much-yarn-arm-knit-blanket/ It will help you decide how much yarn to use. The blanket in the picture above is extra large and used about 306 yards. You’ll need to check what the length is on each ball of yarn, and bear in mind that if it’s thinner than wool roving you might want to double it up as you knit it, then you’ll actually need double of what I used. I hope that helps!
