Farm Animal Blanket Crochet Pattern

The much anticipated Farm Animal Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern is now ready!!!

An amazing blanket that any child would be lucky to receive. It features 12 different farm animals in a fun and colorful pattern that is a joy to make, it will remind you of the good ol' days on the farm. The character in the stitches throughout the design is enough to add to the animals but not be too distracting. 

The blanket is made up of different shaped motifs and sewn together. Each main motif is designed to feature a different animal. Or you can make just your one favorite animal, alternate with two animals, or leave them all blank for polka dots, the possibilities are endless. Switch up the main colors for so many different looks.

The animals featured in the blanket are:
Cow, Horse, Sheep
Dog, Chicken, Goat

Donkey, Pig, Bull
Rooster, Cat, Bunny

This is also a great project to use up some scrap yarn while you create the fun animals.

Pygmy Seahorse Crochet Pattern

I was so excited to be able to create the new Pygmy Seahorse Pattern. This came as a request from a sweet 2nd grader who was working on an animal report. Part of the report was to include a "model" of the animal. Many of the kids where bringing in stuffed animals as their model, only her Mom couldn't find one. So, of course I was so excited to fill her request!

Now a true pygmy seahorse is only about 2 cm tall. There is no way I could crochet something that small, plus she needed to be able to display it. So, we decided to make it between 7 & 9 inches tall. A pygmy seahorse has raised bumps covering their body to help them blend in with the coral they live around and the seahorse has no fins.

My favorite part about making this pattern is that it is crocheted as one piece! That is right, no sewing involved! Also, the pattern can be made in different yarn weights. The purple sample was made in worsted (#4) weight yarn and is 9 inches tall. The pink sample was made in light (#3) weight yarn and is 7" tall. This little seahorse is sure to be very loved!

The perfect touch for spring is this adorable crochet umbrella. I can just picture all those little girls in their Easter dresses and lacy umbrella posing for those perfect pictures. Now you can create this same look by making the crochet umbrella canopy and attaching it to a child size umbrella. 

Grab your copy of the pattern on Ravelry / Etsy / Craftsy

The pattern includes a photo tutorial for preparing your umbrella frame and for assembling the canopy to the frame. Instructions are written (no chart) and the canopy is made using a super fine yarn instead of heavy thread.
Note of Umbrella: find a child size umbrella measuring 16” from top of canopy to end tips, umbrella must have 8 points.
