Hello! Beginner knitter here. I just finished knitting a 18x28 baby blanket for my baby cousin that’ll be born sometime next month. I’m glad I finished the project, but I’m confused and terrified when it comes to washing the blanket. I don’t have a washing machine, so is it possible to handwash it? If so:
What water temperature?
Should I use softeners/detergents/other products?
How do you dry it?
Other tips on washing it, please
I’m scared the yarn would come undone or unravel, so I have been holding off washing it since I have no idea how. I’m a newbie, and this is only my second project, and I don’t want to mess it up just because I washed it wrong.
(Yarn is 60% cotton, 40% acrylic. Pattern is basic garter stitch).
