    • Thread the wool needle by inserting the yarn through the needle's eye.

    • Tie a knot at the end of the yarn that faces away from the needle's point. You'll leave the other end of the yarn alone and it will hang freely. That is ok!

    • Insert the needle in the back of the blanket and pull until the knot stops you from pulling further.

    • You will be making zig-zag stitches.
