This beautiful hand-knitted lap blanket is perfect for the winter season. It has been hand stitched with 2 strands of yarn to make it thicker and warmer. This blanket has been hand crocheted without a hook, using the popular arm knit technique. This blanket is ultra-soft and stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. It is perfect for getting cozy by the fire. This Blanket is heavy and provides sensory support. Un-stretched it measures ~44 x 42 inches. The ends have been tied off and woven back into the blanket. This makes the ends more seamless. If the ends come out, you can weave it back in or cut it at the knot. I would recommend hand washing and drying flat.
