2in1 Triceratops Dinosaur Hooded Blanket – A new crochet pattern
The 2in1 Hooded Dinosaur Hooded Blanket is the first in a long line of animal hooded blankets I am planning to make.
Once my family and friends found out what I was making, they all wanted one for their kids or themselves and now there are 8 different designs in line, so if the dinosaur is not your child’s favorite animal, you will have other options
The blanket is suitable for girls or boys, adults and kids alike and comes in two versions: triceratops or stegosaurus so you can choose the design you like best.
What a great idea! A cuddly, warm hooded blanket your child or yourself can snuggle in and then it folds into a decorative cushion in the shape of a dinosaur.
Made with super chunky (super bulky / #6) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft and works up in no time.
