Vegan Security Blankie
This machine washable blankie is ideal for a beginning knitter or someone who loves some garter stitch! Just the right size for a stroller or a car seat, this is knit in strips and joined by whip stitching so that as the child ages, the blanket can be reduced in size. A toddler or preschooler can carry around part of this while the other section is in the wash!
Note: This can be worked with a fingering weight yarn that is doubled or a single strand of a DK weight yarn. In any case, use a machine washable yarn to protect the sanity of the baby’s mom!
