Posted March 13, 2018 06:30:30By Kristine KohlsDahlia, the co-founder of the HandKnit Blanket Company, is not only a mother of two, but also a mom of two.
The three-year-old has autism and uses a wheelchair.
“It’s a little bit of a shock when a baby comes out with a disability.
I’m always looking for ways to help people,” Dahlia told ABC News.
Kohl’s blanket is based on the designs by the Norwegian artist Jan-Willem Haug.
She told ABC affiliate KOH that her inspiration for the design came when she was reading a book about the early development of autism called “The Child Who Can’t Speak.”
Haug’s design features a baby’s face and body with a cow print blanket with a red heart on a white background.
“I think a lot of people just think about the face, the face is just a part of the baby’s body.
But I think the heart and the cow print is a part that connects to a lot more,” she said.
Haug has been knitting for more than 10 years, and her newest design, called the “Baby Blanket,” was inspired by her son.
“The design was created with an eye toward making a newborn baby blanket that can hold two children.
There’s no other way to say it, it’s just the most beautiful blanket I’ve ever made,” she told ABCNews.
The baby blanket is now in her parents’ hands, and she plans to make more blankets for her family.
