Dear Kathryn, maybe the use of the Dutch yarn Hoooked Zpagetti is a good way to crochet a heavy blanket. Normally it would be too heavy, but I think it could be a great yarn for this. You must think that ca. 1 kilo (sorry, don't know it in ounces) will be enough for 50x50 cm (this is 20 x 20 yard I think??)  Our 17 year old son has Aspergers, So I read a lot about sensitory integration dysfunction. I still have to much work in making normal patterns for this yarn but I thought a lot about special items for people with handicaps and the use of this yarn. Even a lapcushion could be a great help for sitting still. If you want to know more check my blog www.sweetandsimplestuff.blogspot.com or my facebooksite for the yarn Although I don't have a webshop yet, I can always send the yarn also to other countries. Or place work or yarn on Etsy
