A few weeks ago I shared the beginning of a cotton blanket I was going to knit. Light colored verigated cotton yarn on US # 13 needles.
It knitted up so so nicely. It took a while but it ended up 3 feet by 4 feet. I used a little over 800 yards double knit cotton yarn.
As soon as I finished the final stitch I washed it in cold water on the gentle cycle. And dried it on medium heat. The laundering brought the stitches together just a little. It fluffed the blanket up a good bit.
I wanted to know it would wash well be for I gave it to my brother, Charles. I made it of cotton so Charles favorite girl, Trixie, would stay warm. But the cotton would not be so hot Charles melted away. He is so hot natured I know the velour blankets he has been using have been burning him up.
I am so proud of the way this turned out! I hope my friend that taught me this pattern is too!
What do you think Alec? Is it ok?
