What you need to know

Julie Ferguson’s beautiful blanket will be treasured for years to come

Classic soldier motifs give this patriotic project timeless appeal – and it’s suitable for beginners! You only need to know how to knit and purl, because the soldiers can be sewn on afterwards using a technique called Swiss darning. Take a look at our Knitwise panel for how to do this.
