This beautiful hand-crochet blanket is perfect for a new baby. It has been hand stitched with 2 strands of yarn to make it thick and warm. This blanket is ultra-soft and stretchy. This blanket is so warm and silky. This handmade blanket can be a one-of-a-kind gift for a new baby shower. Un-stretched it measures ~34 x 34 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.
