I have been asked about what type of patterns to use for baby blankets. You can use any pattern that you would like. Please keep in mind that we try to stay away from ones with large spaces between the stitches. This is to help prevent the babies from getting their fingers and toes caught in them. Also, one of my local hospitals wanted me to remind everyone try to stay away from the color yellow. If the baby has jaundice ( yellowing of the skin and the whites of the eyes) yellow makes its more prominent. Please, remember that you can knit, sew or crochet these blankets and we also accept ones that have been purchased.
At the bottom of this page I have posted a couple of places where you can go to get patterns on the web. Another pattern that I use is for dishrags. There are some lovely designs to these, you just have to adjust them to whatever size you need.
