Farmhouse screams rustic comfort. This casual, textured, and cuddle-worthy blanket works up fairly quickly due to the small size and large gauge. It is a suitable project for experienced beginners interested in the challenge of a large, cabled piece. The cotton is easy care as well as sensationally soft - perfect for gifting without fear of it irritating baby’s sensitive skin. Farmhouse will be most at home in the grass with a sleeping baby curled up safely in its soft cables.
