This lovey blanket was super, super, simple!
Many of you already know, but for anyone new, please note that I have poor pattern writing skills....for some reason it just never clicked with me. For this reason I supplement with links to video tutorials that can be watched on tube. However, note that the stitches are all pretty basic and if you have crochet skills you should be fine. I just make these up and write them down as I go, so there really is no right or wrong. as long as it looks good when you're done, who cares? A child will love it no matter what :-)
Please remember to feel free to contact me with any questions!
*Best price I can find for the Sugar'n Cream yarn is $1.99 for a 2.5 oz skein at Michaels Craft Stores. Even better if you print out and use their coupons each week - I print two coupons and bring my husband (They almost always have a 40% or 50% off one regular priced item!).
Make the Head:
(I strongly suggest reading all the directions first and then watching the video tutorial if this is your first time making a ball shape).
Make the Beak:
Sew on Eyes:
Make the Wings:
Make the Blanket:
This is a basic granny square blanket with 5 corners instead of 4 and 14 rows with the last row in the edging color, one row of single crochet and the chain edge. If my directions are confusing, check out this granny square video tutorial. My pattern just adds an extra corner, but is done pretty much the same!
The final blanket is approximately 18" x 18".
