3in1 Farm Horse Baby Blanket – A Folding Baby Afghan In The Shape Of A Horse
What a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative pillow/armchair decor in the shape of a cuddly horse.
I have decided to finish the 3in1 farm animal baby blanket collection this year and the horse seemed like the perfect one to make after the sheep version.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the armchair.
I crocheted the blanket part of the design with two strands of double knit (light worsted) yarn and it turned out warm and soft, but light in weight, perfect for babies of all sizes and ages.

Why is it called a 3in1 Folding Horse Baby Blanket?
The 3in1 folding farm horse baby blanket acts as a blanket, a toy, and a decoration for your loved one’s room.
It is a blanket that keeps your child warm and snuggly.
Unfolded, it keeps your child warm and snuggly while he is entertained playing with the toy horse attached to the blanket.
When you don’t need the blanket anymore, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a cute animal decoration that you can rest on the armchair or the side of the cot.
