Project Linus Blanket #31:
I don’t know why, but this reminded me of a baby elephant so that’s why I chose this name. Maybe it’s because in the Disney cartoon “Dumbo” he had blue eyes and that’s what I think of when I hear the name Dumbo. Anyway…
This blanket comes from a downloadable book that can be found at Annie’s:
This was the Misty Morning lap throw.
I made this blanket because my sister is trying to crochet this same blanket, but is having some difficulties. She lives a few states away so it’s not like she can get help from me or my mom easily. I decided the best way to help her would be to record myself crocheting the blanket and giving tips while doing it. Obviously this is a copyrighted pattern, so I bought a copy of the booklet and the video I recorded will never be made public. However, it’s a resource that my sister can use whenever she has a moment to sit down and work on it.
Front and back post crochet stitches can be tricky, and I think that’s what she was having the hardest time trying to make.
Other than the blanket I have also made a few hats.
Hats #5 thru #9.
I made a few of the beanie style and two of the ribbed hats.
