The most well-loved handknit baby blanket
I just wanted to share my beloved baby blanket with you all. It is a handknit I received when I was born and have loved it for the past 24 years. It feels like cotton, probably a cotton synth blend.

I'd love to reproduce it if you guys have any ideas on where to find a similar pattern/ yarn.

That's very cool....DH has two blankets that his gma knit for him when his mom was still preggers with him. We use them for DD now, almost 30 years later.

That's BEAUTIFUL! Do you know who knit it for you? Or did your parents buy it from somewhere?
