The yarn used for the blanket pictured at the top of the page is Ella Rae Amity Prints, color #207. As you can see, it self-stripes. It is also cushy and soft, lovely to work with, but any worsted weight yarn will do nicely. It took less than one skein to make the preemie size, figure on five skeins for the larger, i.e. 1000 yards.

This sample blanket is going to charity through Threads of Kindness--check out the “Threads of Kindness” Ravelry group if you like.
