I hand make all of my blankets, crocheting them with love, adoring the thought that they will keep someone cosy and warm.
The blankets are mostly stitched using a double crochet stitch (UK stitches) to minimise the size of the loops between the stitches. This allows the blankets to be suitable for babies - minimilising the risk of baby's toes getting caught in the loops.

Sympathising with the environment, I use wool with as little plastic properties as possible, wrapping the blankets in paper and tieing with leftover wool pieces.
