Project Linus Blanket #31 3-29-20 - Baby Elephant

“Baby Elephant”

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:

LapThrows for the Family

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.

Project Linus Blanket #31 - Detail

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.

Crocheted Hats 5-9

I made a few of the beanie style and two of the ribbed hats.

    Oh, very nice! It’s super cool that you thought to crochet the same thing as your sister and make personalized help videos as you went! The blanket is beautiful. : )

    Congrats on getting more hats knocked out, too!
