No Sew Blanket Knot Tying

Here is a great way to finish the edges of your fleece blanket project – Without having to sew!

You start out by cutting the fleece just like if you were going to tie the fringe. Next fold the fringe up and make a very small clip in the center of both pieces vertically, aligned with the fringe cut:

Then push both pieces through the little clip from the top of the blanket through to the back, pull all the way through but not too tight:

It takes longer than if you were to tie them but I like it better because the edges are smooth.

You can see my No-Sew, No Tie Fleece Blanket YouTube Video here, and Here.

Let me know how you like it.

  1. Hey, I just have a question about the slit that’s being cut. Do you cut it vertically or horizontally? Do you have a picture of the cut?

  8. i am looking to make a tie blanket for a man and i saw once a rope tie but cant find anything on how to do it. have any idea’s?

  9. I’m sorry I’ve been so slow to answer all your queries. I am going to make a short video showing how to make the slits and how to insert them. Hopefully it will answer all your questions. I spent some time in Europe this past summer, and my camera got broken during one of it’s trips in baggage… I’ve got a new one ordered and as soon as I figure it out, I’ll make the video. I really appreciate all your interest.

  10. Can you send me a better description of how to cut the slits and how to feed the material please πŸ™‚

  11. I was getting ready to try this method and I started thinking when you tie a blanket you take the corners off do you do the same with this?

  12. Very nice finish. I can’t wait to try it. I’m thinking it would look cute to pull through every other one the opposite. Front to back, then back to front and so on. Thank you for sharing!

  13. This is such a good idea! I want to try it, but I wonder if it would come loose when you wash it…….. Have you washed one that was done with this technique?????

  14. Thanks for the idea and instructions, I like this finish better than the tied method. Cleaner edge.

    As for all the “I don’t understand” comments, please tell me you are kidding !?!? The picture is right there and the directions are very clear. These comments have got to be jokes… No one is that slow…

  16. I’m interested in how you finish the corners. Awesome idea. I’m thinking of using a big crochet hook to push through the slits and grab the tail or one of those potholder hooks too. πŸ™‚
