Easy knitting and luxurious yarns make this an excellent last minute project. Knit in simple garter and stocking stitch, or use a mohair yarn and knit in garter stitch alone. This is a blanket that will make any doll cozy and comfortable, the doll’s caregiver feel nurturing and nurtured through the tactile warmth, and the maker happy to knit with such lovely materials!
