Double blanket is a variation where a second row of stitching is made between the first. You can use the same color thread, or add some pizzaz with a contrasting color. Start by making a row of blanket stitch. Next, flip the stitching upside down and start another row with the stitches placed between the previous row.
What is the best sewing stitch for a blanket?
The 4-thread overlock is the most commonly used serger/overlocker stitch. It’s a very durable and strong stitch and the best choice when finishing edges, especially these raw edges on the blanket.
Which stitch is similar to blanket stitch?
The blanket stitch is a technique used in various forms of embroidery. It is very similar to the buttenhole stitch and it also uses two levels. It is called buttonhole stitch when the stitches are packed closely together, and blanket stitch (USA: blanket edge) when they are more evenly spaced out.
Threads’ seamstress Norma Bucko distinguishes between the stitches by remembering that, in the blanket stitch, the needle point goes down into the fabric from the right side. In the buttonhole stitch, the needle’s point comes up through the fabric from the wrong side.
The invisible stitch, also known as the ladder, slip, blind, or hidden stitch is a commonly used hand sewing stitch. In this example, I’m using it to sew closed the opening on a pillow cover.
