My goal here was to make a blanket out of stash yarn for our baby due on Thanksgiving day (Nov 24th)! We don't know if it's a boy or girl yet, but I feel that this blanket would work well with either one. I used 8/4 cotton from Webs and wove it on my 8 shaft baby wolf using doubleweave. It's done in plain weave to minimize the baby pulling on threads. (My two year old has a twill blanket and he likes pulling threads out!) It's very soft, and I'm extremely happy with how it turned out! I can't wait to wrap our new little baby in it!
