Triceratops Dinosaur Baby Blanket
The dinosaur baby blanket is my latest crochet pattern from the folding baby blankets collection.
What a great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative dino toy or decoration for the nursery.
This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender-neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the baby’s cot.

Looking For Similar Animal Baby Blankets?
I have made quite a few designs since I posted this one, all suitable for different nursery themes, from woodland animals to farm ones, and more exotic ones like the unicorn baby blanket.
Why is it a 3in1 Dinosaur Baby Blanket?
The 3in1 folding dino 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.
If you travel, your baby stays warm and entertained while playing with the dino toy attached to the blanket. At home, use this blanket as a play mat.
When not in use, 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 in the nursery.
The Perfect Baby Shower Gift
The triceratops baby blanket will make a wonderful baby shower gift that can be used year after year as a blanket, toy or playmat.
It was designed to fit in a dinosaur-themed nursery or child room, you can adjust the colors to fit in any color scheme or gender.
