Knitting Tools to finish the Blanket Afghan
We are using circular needles size 11 US or 8 mm that are 36 inches or longer. In weeks 1 thru 5 we are just using one circular needle, but in week 6, we will need 3 needles total. So you can either purchase all three circulars now or wait to purchase those extra 2 needles on week 6. You’ll also want to have scissors and a tapestry needle on hand.

VIDEO: EASY STRETCHY BIND OFF TECHNIQUE FOR THE BERNAT STITCH ALONG

Posted September 7, 2018
This Easy Stretchy Bind Off is my favorite knitting technique to knit a flexible finishing edge. I use in this in the Bernat Stitch Along to help the different sections of the blanket stretch and move.
