The Sutton Receiving Blanket
The Sutton Receiving Blanket is a really perfect baby blanket, if I don’t say so myself :) You can change your yarn depending on what you are looking for- acrylic/cotton for Spring/Summer or wool/wool blend for Fall/Winter. Depending on your yarn, this blanket can be lightweight and airy but will still provide warmth or super warm with wool.
I loved using this to cover my baby in an infant car seat. It was just the right size and kept her really warm. It was great for the stroller too.
