Try This: Wool-Dot Blankets

Large dots of vibrant wool give tired, old blankets new life.

STEP 4: Cut out the circle with scissors. You’ll need about sixteen circles—four rows of four each—for a queen-size blanket. Lay the blanket out flat. Space the first row of four circles evenly from side to side across the blanket. Measure between the circles. Adjust the position of that first row up or down so the distance between each circle equals the distance from the bottom edge of the blanket. Use that same distance to position the subsequent rows of circles to create a grid of sixteen. The top edge of the blanket can have a greater margin because it’s typically turned down when the bed is made. Pin the circles in place.
