Knotted Fleece Stroller Blanket 

Sorry there haven’t been many posts the past few days. I have been sick/am sick with a nasty flu bug and haven’t done much of anything. 

I thought today I would make something very simple.

If you’ve never tried a knotted fleece blanket before, they are quick and easy to make and make great gifts.  You can make them any size or shape, you could even make a round one if you wanted!

I remember making a bunch of these as gifts years ago when I was still working at a fabric store!

I made mine stroller size. It ended up being 24 x 38 inches. 

All I needed was a fleece blanket which I bought at the dollar store for only  $3.00 and some scissors! Looking at the width of some of the cuts, I probably also should have used my tape measure!

I began by cutting off the finished edges all around the blanket.  I folded it in half to make two pieces, a top and a bottom, and rounded the corners. 

I placed the two pieces together, wrong sides together, right sides facing out.

Then I started to cut the slits… all the way around the blanket.  I cut them about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long. 

Once they were all cut I started knotting them, attaching the top layer to the bottom. 

And I continued knotting all the way around until all the slits were tied.

And I ended up with a cute, warm Knotted Fleece Stroller Blanket! Another project to the “baby collection” I’ve started for impending grandparenthood lol!

  1. I currently work in a fabric store and we sell yards and yards and yards (and yards and yards) of fleece for those blankets. Lots of gifts, and lots of donations. It’s a great service project for clubs and sororities around town. Lots of people and lots of pets enjoy that cozy fleece.

    • I’m not surprised at the amount of fleece you sell to make these. We used to also get a lot of seniors in buying the fleece to make them. Knotting was easier on arthritic hands and they sold them at their bazaars!
