Use stitch markers to keep track of your stitches. This will help you keep your place in the pattern and ensure that your blanket turns out correctly.
Take your time and enjoy the process. Baby blankets are a great project for relaxing and unwinding, so take your time and enjoy the process of making it.
Use a good quality yarn. A high-quality yarn will ensure that your blanket is soft, cozy, and durable, making it the perfect gift for a new baby.
Block your blanket before gifting. Blocking will help to even out the stitches and give your blanket a professional finish.
