I agree with kelle0302 in that I take the cost of my yarn & double it. I usually use very baby friendly yarns such as Red Heart Baby Soft or the Bernat Baby Yarns since these are soft but yet can be washed in a washer & dried in a dryer. The cost of these aren't much but yet in the patterns I use I am now fetching $35 to $45 a blanket & haven't had any complaints on that price. I keep a stash in the closet so that when someone calls at the last minute I have them there. I am very lucky that the ladies I sell to you know the value of a hand made item.
