Bedtime bookworms will love snuggling up and listening to their favorite story in a cozy hooded blanket. Choose from 10 fantasy-themed children's blankets and bring story time to life as they act out the characters – will they be Little Red Riding Hood or the Big, Bad wolf? Every blanket tells a story, with pockets on the sides for snuggly paws and different tails. Perfect for unwinding for a bedtime story and animating the oral tradition of storytelling – little listeners, as well as their parents, will find themselves enchanted.
Lynne Rowe's latest new book has ten fun, fairytale projects to crochet, including a deer, a dragon, a lion and a unicorn. Each blanket can be made in two sizes: for toddlers (age 2 to 4) and for young children (age 5 to 7).
Along with crochet techniques, there are suggestions for varying the yarn color to create a different character (changing a polar bear into a brown bear, for example) and you can choose between a rounded or a pointed hood. Lynne has also designed a strip of matching bunting to accompany each project.
Each book includes a highly detailed photo tutorial so that you can build each square, hexagon & blanket step by step.
The following patterns are included in the book.
- Basic Square Blanket
- Basic Rectangular Blanket
- Dragon (Cover)
- Festive Elf
- Little Red Riding Hood
- Polar Bear
- Princess or Prince
