Receiving Blankets

Call it what you will... binky, boppie, lovey... every baby needs a good old-fashioned security blanket. Regardless of the season, it's so nice to have a little something to snuggle! So for summer, we've whipped up a new lightweight version of our crochet-edged Flannel Receiving Blankets.

Nani Iro's newest line of airy flannels are just right for cozy, warm weather receiving blankets. These whimsical prints also offer a good dose of sophistication, perfect for mom and baby! Edged in Koigu's fingering weight Premium Merino, these cuddly keepsakes can be machine washed time and time again for long-loving use.

Between Koigu's sharp colors (2229 and 1051 used here!) and Nani Iro's unique patterns, the combinations are endless. For even more options, explore our other flannels here, and for step-by-step instructions, please visit our Flannel Receiving Blankets project journal, right here!  Enjoy!  --Laura

    I'd like to make two of these and give as a set. I'm planning to order the coral and cream fuwari. Can you recommend a color in the koigu that would work well as a border on both, and will one skein be enough for two? Koigu has so many options and it's just so hard to tell online! Thanks in advance for any recommendation!

    Hi Sam. I had a few girls at the shop help me with this, the consensus is that color 1043 (which is a blue-ish color) and 2132.5 (a green) would both be lovely. I don't think you can get two blankets out of one skein. You could get three blankets out of two skeins though. The recipient of these sure is lucky. What a sweet gift. –Laura
