Fairytale Blankets to Crochet


10 fantasy-themed children's blankets for storytime cuddles by Lynne Rowe

Book Description

Do you know a child with a favourite storytime character? Crochet them a hooded blanket, then crochet all the others!

Bedtime bookworms will love snuggling up and listening to their favourite story in a cosy hooded blanket. Bring storytime to life by acting out the characters will they be a goodie or a baddie, Little Red Riding Hood or the wolf?

Lynne Rowe’s latest new book has ten fun, fairytale projects to crochet, including a deer, a dragon, a unicorn and a polar bear. Each pattern can be made in two sizes: for toddlers (age two to three) and for young children (age three to five). The author also includes instructions for adapting the size of the blankets to suit smaller or larger children, so no one misses out.

Along with crochet techniques, there are tips and ideas for varying the designs (changing a dragon into a dinosaur, for example) and you can choose between a rounded or a pointed hood. Lynne also shows you how to use up the yarn scraps to make decorative bunting.

Each blanket tells a story, with pockets on the sides for snuggly paws and different tails. Perfect for unwinding for a bedtime story and animating the oral tradition of storytelling little listeners as well as their parents will find themselves enchanted.
