Choice of yarn
For the manufacture of blankets is not recommended to choosewool yarn. Plaids made of wool are short-lived and, alas, can quickly lose their original beauty. They are unpredictable and able to change the shape and size when washing, and yet they are formed into pellets.
Therefore, it is better to choose cottonyarn with the addition of acrylic. This combination is much better than pure cotton, because acrylic does not allow the finished product to deform and makes it more wear-resistant. In addition, there is a special children's acrylic yarn. It does not cause allergies in children, and the touch is very soft and pleasant. Plaids from such a yarn turn out to be thin, but serve a very long time.
Correct pick up hooks - also an important partwork. For knitting plaids, a hook with a thickness of 3 or 3.5 millimeters is best suited. Although depending on the thickness and type of yarn, you can use a tool of a different size.
