A snuggly blanket to knit for baby in three sizes (carriage/sm crib square/lg crib square) with lots of cushy texture to burrow into, yet light enough to be a go-to traveling accessory. Deep garter borders ensures the piece will lay flat and keep its shape through multiple washings, making this a practical, pretty gift to knit for an expecting family.
Substituting yarn and/or needles will result in an overall variation in size.
