I have tried to do this stitch a long time ago but could not figure it out and I knew it was easy but mine never came out right. I like that this tutorial has a video along with the written instructions because the video shows the blanket stitch very well . I see what I was doing wrong. This is such a great stitch to use as a finished edge on many things and I am going to use it on the end of a blanket to add some pizazz. For any beginner this is a must watch. Thanks.
