Make This Gorgeous Beginner Knitted Rug With Tassels

I just love this cheerful knitted blanket. The striped afghan will definitely brighten up any room in the house. Yes, it is a big project for a beginner to take on but it is also a great project for getting the confidence to knit while doing something else.

You might have read comments online about people knitting when watching TV or listening to an audiobook and wished that could be you. Well, this is a great pattern for trying out multi-tasking!

In addition, this pattern gives you the opportunity to try out the mattress stitch. The mattress stitch is the most commonly used method for joining two pieces of knitting together. You can find a great tutorial here: Mattress Stitch [A How To Tutorial].
