Step 1. Use duct tape to sharpen the ends of PVC tubes

Step 2. Use your new ‘knitting needles’ like you would the regular ones (knit one, purl two). About 24 loops across make a decent-sized blanket

Step 3a. “Seal” the edges by using the end of the cord and weaving it in and out of the loops that make up the edge

Step 3b. Then, tie a loose knot when you run out of cord

The last step will provide your blanket extra durability, because the weave should hold in its place
