2in1 Safari Elephant Hooded Blanket In Adult & Child Sizes
Can I just say, I absolutely love the floppy ears on this elephant hooded blanket!
What a great idea! A cuddly, warm hooded blanket your child or yourself can snuggle in and then it folds into a decorative pillow/sofa decor in the shape of a safari elephant with floppy ears and raised trunk for good luck.
Don’t be mislead by the blue trim, the blanket is suitable for girls or boys alike, simply change the color of it or go all out and make the entire blanket in the color of your choice.
The pattern gives you the option to make it in adult or child size and adjust the size of the blanket. Made with super chunky (super bulky / #6) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft and works up in no time.
