This hand knit, fringed, newborn baby blanket afghan throw photo prop with a flecked cream base and fringe on two sides in greens and browns was originally a request from an expectant mother (see the original athttp://www.etsy.com/view_transaction.php?transaction_id=13827129)...she wanted a blanket in the same open, lacy, elastic stitch that I use when I make many of my scarves. Thanks for the great idea, Jenny!
My highly textured, handmade designs are best sellers; I truly enjoy supplying photographers with unique, versatile, top quality newborn infant, baby and child portrait photography props. I appreciate the support of my customers and look forward to working with you!
The first images here were captured by Kimberly Bush of Bluff View Photography in Peoria, IL at http://www.bluffviewphoto.com/

I use 2 strands of strong, durable yarn for the base (shown here in flecked cream beige, please let me know which colors you'd like for the base of the throw I design specifically for you).
Then I add one foot of thick, beautiful fringe on each end. The fringe shown includes wet bark browns, cottony creams, deep earth, new grass & olive greens, moss, golden amber, wildfire charcoals and so much more. Again, feel welcome to ask me to customize for you!
There's quite a bit of stretch in the throw to play with during photo shoots. If this blanket is not stretched at all, then it's 2 feet wide and 3.5 feet with the fringe. It stretches to 4 feet or more wide.
I have hundreds of different colors and textures of yarns, so please feel welcome to ask for a custom throw, afghan or blanket!
These also come in large size for grown ups and make fantastic wedding, anniversary, graduation or housewarming gifts:
