Yes, you can make a throw or blanket with a 48-needle knitting machine. You have 2 options in any circular knitting machine, either using panels or tubes, but remember that by using tubes you will double the amount of yarn because your blanket will have double layers.

What is the right yarn to knit a blanket?

Selecting the right yarn is crucial for a successful knitting project. Consider the desired warmth, texture, and color scheme of your blanket.
DK or worsted yarns work well for creating cozy blankets with the Sentro machine, providing a quick and satisfying knitting experience.

How many stitches do you need to knit a blanket?

The number of stitches you need to knit a blanket depends on several factors, including the size of the blanket, the thickness of your yarn, and your desired stitch pattern.
Here are some general guidelines to help you estimate the number of stitches.

  • Create a gauge swatch by knitting a small sample with your chosen yarn
  • Count the number of stitches per 4′ or 10cm
  • Multiply the number of stitches per inch by the desired width of your blanket
  • For example, if your gauge is 4 stitches per inch, and you want a 40-inch wide blanket, you would need approximately 160 stitches (4 stitches/inch x 40 inches)
  • In the pattern I have all sizes calculated

Knitting Panels for your blanket

Choose a type of yarn you like to work with and has a similar weight to the pattern yarn. Start making the panels casting on 45 stitches to work on panel mode of your sentro knitting machine.
Using waste yarn make 4 rows in a contrasting color and change to the color of choice. Make 260 rows and cast off using waste yarn and a tapestry needle. Make enough panels for the blanket size you wish to make, for this size I made 3 panels, if using tubes make around 5 tubes.

Seaming the tubes or panels

Seam all panels or tubes side by side with mattress stitch. There’s a video available on my youtube channel for this stitch.

To add the SC detail in between both panels start with a Slip knot using double yarn in 2 colors. Start on the bottom and make SC on top of where you mattress stitch before, pulling the yarn from the bottom and inside the crochet loop. Please refer to the video.
Make a row of Sl st. to bind off the bottom and top stitches of each panel, work 1SC each 2 knitted rows on the sides. Make a 2nd row around the entire piece SC1 to each SC and on the bottom and top make an edge. Edge: skip 2, *DC 2 pikot st. DC 2 in same st. sk2 SC1 repeat from * only on the top and bottom of your blanket. If you are not using roses around the sides you can repeat this edge around the entire blanket.
