Completed Projects With Blanket Yarn


I have never worked with blanket yarn before. I got a skein for Christmas and was wrapping my head around what to make with it.

The first thing I made was a pair of mittens. I had used my mitten pattern, but I had to fudge it a bit, otherwise it would have been too big.

I had also made some balls with the left-over yarn.

I also bought some blanket yarn to make a jacket. I had made a scrap yarn jacket and I used what I learn from that to make this jacket.

Unfortunately, you can see that it is not even, and it is longer on one side.

oh well, it is soft and warm. I will use what I learned from this jacket if I make another one in the future.

So, with the left-over yarn from the jacket, I was able to make this purse. This is the first purse I have made that includes a pocket for my iPhone. I think it is a necessary addition to any purse or bag. Got to have that pocket for my phone.

However, I had failed in this project too.
I did not put the handle on right and it is twisted.  I think I will just go with it for now. Gives it character.

I did find blanket yarn super soft. Next time I get blanket yarn, I think I will actually make a blanket.
