Hi, my name is Autumn Wintersgill, and today we're going to talk about how to repair a knit blanket. If you have a special knit blanket that has some holes in it or some dropped stitches, here's a way to repair it. Take a wool needle that has an eye that's big enough to fit those yarns. Take your project on the wrong side, so we're flipping it over and finding the holes. So, I see a hole right here, I'm going to go through both sides of the hole and then the other sides of the hole. And then again, through the top and bottom of the hole. Pull that tight and from the right side, it just looks like a little x and it kind of blends in with the stitches that I've made. And then, moving onto the next hole and just go in the back, top and bottom, side to side, top and bottom again; flip it over and there we go.
