Here is a link to a pattern for 44" x 70" afghan. It requires the 28" long loom that has 84 pegs:

I am making blankets using panels made on my Knifty Knitter, but am not sure how to stitch together the panels to make a large blanket. Can someone help me please?

How do I make a blanket with the yellow Knifty Knitter? If I do this like I read and I hem, it still curls up. How do I fix that?

I've not used the Knifty Knitters yet but I do use knitting machines and all the finished work has to be blocked to flatten the edges. You have to pin the item to a blocking board (fancy name for a foam covered board) in the shape it is to be finished. Do this while the item is wet and let it dry pinned in place or use a steamer to set the stitches. If you don't have a blocking board you can lay it on a sheet on a bed and pin through the layers and steam it there. I wouldn't lay a wet item on a bed that way unless you're pretty sure it will dry quickly. (11/09/2006)

The blanket will always curl up. To prevent this, I crochet at least four inches on all sides. I use the shell stitch and this makes the edging look very elegant and lacy. (04/01/2008)

I love making different things with my Knifty Knitter. I would just start knitting with it, and if you want to add a color, tie the new color on. I have never used a pattern for anything I make. I've done hats, scarves, baby blankets and lap blankets. (08/21/2008)
I've made baby blankets on the knifty knitter with no curling. All you do is make the first three rows garter (knit one row purl one row then knit the last). Then on all the rest, make the beginning of the rows first 3 stitches, k1, p1, k1. This gives you a border around the blanket and it won't curl. I have also made these blankets with a crocheted scalloped edge. There are many yahoo groups for the KK, give them a try. Mari
P.S. Please excuse the photography. (08/21/2008)

It is really hard and frustrating at the beginning, but after a while, you start to get a hang of it and actually enjoy doing it! (11/26/2008)
