Weave in the ends.

No blocking required.

I ended my queen sized blanket when it was 68″ long. It hangs off a little on the end and I tuck it under my pillows. If you’d like it to fit over your pillows, you’ll want to make it longer.

BO – bind-off in pattern
CO – cast-on {long-tail cast-on method}
K – knit stitches {K1 means to knit 1 stitch}
P – purl stitches {P2 means to purl 2 stitches}
