Welcome to this tutorial on how to personalize your blanket using the duplicate stitch technique. In this video, I will show you a simple and fast method to add names or designs to your blanket. Whether you're a beginner or experienced in knitting, this technique is easy to learn and will give your blanket a unique touch.

Materials Needed for Personalizing a Blanket

Before we begin, let's gather all the materials we'll need for this project. You will need:

  • A blanket (If you don't have one, I will provide a link in the description to a tutorial on how to make a blanket.)
  • Yarn in a contrasting color to the blanket
  • Tapestry needle
  • Scissors
  • Grid template (Downloadable for free on my website)

Selecting the Blanket and Yarn

When choosing a blanket for personalization, make sure it is the right size and style for your project. Additionally, select a yarn color that contrasts well with the blanket. This will ensure that the design or name stands out prominently.

Choosing the Design or Name

Decide on the design or name you want to add to your blanket. You can find various letter patterns on Pinterest or create your own. For this tutorial, I have used pixel letters, which can be easily copied onto the grid template. Remember to choose a letter size that is visible on your blanket.

Creating a Grid for Stitch Placement

To accurately place the stitches for your design or name, use the grid template. The number of stitches on the grid should match the number of stitches on your blanket. If you need a larger grid, you can easily print and combine multiple templates.

Starting the Duplicate Stitch

Thread three meters of yarn through the tapestry needle. Begin the duplicate stitch from the bottom of the first letter, following the V-shaped stitches on the blanket. Work your way up, recreating each stitch with the contrasting yarn.

Tips for Successful Duplicate Stitching

To achieve the best results, keep these tips in mind while performing the duplicate stitch technique:

  • Start from the bottom and work your way up.
  • Choose a method that feels comfortable for you when transitioning between stitches.
  • Take your time and be patient, as this technique requires precision.
  • Avoid creating stitches that are too tight, as this can detract from the visibility of the design.
  • If needed, refer to the grid template to ensure accurate stitch placement.

Finishing the Duplicate Stitch

Once you have completed stitching the entire name or design, secure the yarn by making a knot or weaving in the ends. Trim any excess yarn, and admire your personalized blanket.

Finalizing the Personalized Blanket

After finishing the duplicate stitch, you can give your blanket a final touch by blocking it or adding any additional embellishments. Take a step back and appreciate the uniqueness you have added to your blanket.


Personalizing a blanket using the duplicate stitch technique is a fun and creative way to make your blanket truly one-of-a-kind. With patience and attention to detail, you can easily add names, designs, or heartfelt messages to any knitted or crocheted project. Enjoy the process and embrace the joy of creating something personalized for yourself or a loved one.
