Step 1: Line up the fabric

Before lining up the fabric, make sure to trim off the selvage of both fleece pieces.  Line the two fleeces together with the right side facing the outside.  You’ll notice that the wrong side is a little faded, and the right side is crisper.

You can pin the two fleeces together to help keep them in place, but this is optional.

Step 2: Cut the corners & fringe

Cut 5 by 5 inch squares out of the four corners, measuring with the ruler.

Then, cut 5 inch strips, 1 inch wide, along the four sides of the fleece. You can use the ruler to make sure the lines are straight.

Step 3: Tie the knots

Tie the two pieces of opposite fringe together in a knot by looping it through and pushing upwards.  Finish tying the fringe into knots on all four sides, and the blanket is complete.
