So, I learned how to do basic crochet last year, and of course launched into a couple of blanket projects...(I also made a few scarves for xmas last year, which were pretty well received).
Anyway, now that I am finally getting close to finishing the blankets, I'm wondering a few things.

I feel like I need to wash the blanket before giving it...and I'm concerned that the lil' knots where I attached the different yarns will come undone. I tied the best lil knots I could- square knots, pulled tight.
I could not figure out the zigzag kind of pattern, so I did my blankets in a straight line kind of pattern - think a really big scarf...is this gonna present a problem when they are washed? I wonder if they will stretch out of shape once washed.
For the blankets, I have been using worsted yarn.
As rudimentary as my skills are, I do enjoy this activity in the cold months, and would like to not have a big ole blanket fall to pieces in the washing machine after months of work. Any help or suggestions will be most appreciated!
