When the babies are over one year old, blankets may now be safe for them to use. That’s why many hobbyists are busy looking for knitting patterns for baby blankets. These blankets are perfect gifts for the cute babies.
There are a wide variety of patterns, designs, colours and textures available for blankets. To help you choose and create the perfect gift, here are a few tips:
1. Choose a vibrant colour
Vibrant colours add something to the whole outfit of the babies. Also, notice that the interiors and clothing of most babies are light colours. One reason is that these colours radiate happiness and life.
Blankets are no exceptions. The colours should be pleasing to the eye to complement the overall look of the baby’s room. In addition, light colours are more attractive in photos. They are more noticeable and your friends can clearly see how adorable the baby is.
2. Take note of the fabric
The baby’s comfort should be the priority. Will the fabric be soft enough for her skin? Is it breathable and the air is free to circulate (for ventilation and comfort)? Is it durable enough? Will it discourage growth of microorganisms?
Wool yarns are said to be durable and anti-microbial. Even after many washes, the blanket will still remain almost the same. These yarns also have a natural resistance against microorganisms. You’ll have peace that the blanket is somehow safe for the baby.
3. Add a beanie, boots and other clothing accessories
If you have the time, why not also make a beanie, boots, socks, sweater and other clothing accessories for the baby?
These are small and you might find complementing patterns with the blankets. You can finish them all and make the baby happier.
