I haven't washed, or blocked any of my woobies, and they look fine. I might mention that these woobies are for my DGC's (for Christmas), and their ages (by Christmas) will be 2 to 9 years old. So they are not infants. That is one reason the bigger size is fine. Also, even the 9-yr-old will love her woobie (the zebra). Her last birthday party had a jungle theme.

I'm sure they do love them! They're beautiful.

Mine looked fine pre-blocking, but it looked even better when it was blocked. Might be the difference in yarns, the way we knit or just different expectations. Since it was a baby shore gift I decided to give it a try and was quite happy with the results.

Thanks for providing the dimensions for the Woobie using worsted weight yarn. I was curious to know approximately what the size difference would be.

lol. I'm glad you explained it because I had no idea what that meant.

I've always heard those called security blankets.

The regular blankets that get carried around are usually called that, but these cute ones are often called loveys or woobies.
