I love making baby blankets, the subtle variations in tone and texture make for a beautiful and timeless gift that will keep on giving over the years.
The blanket above was cot size (95 x 135cm) when it was gifted to a new born. Now little girl is 4 years old and it has come back to me to be enlarged to fit her single bed (95 x 165cm).
As she grows the blanket can grow with her. Maybe up to a double or queen size when she leaves home? Or perhaps, one day, it will be converted back to two or more baby blankets.
There will be running repairs along the way, no doubt, but if handled with care, these blankets should last a lifetime.
