Learning to tie

After I made some scarves..

 I had some left over fleece..

 I am self teaching myself how to tie blankets..

 I am making small versions for the cats..

I did a square knot first… that was easy..but it was too gathered…

 Now..I am doing looping knots..a little harder..because of my fat fingers.. and it is laying nicely…

 Those who tie blankets do you prefer square or looping?​
