Baby Blanket (with elephant applique)

Pattern(s) Used:

For the blanket- Little Clouds Crochet Blanket Pattern by Lisa Auch

For the elephant applique- Elephant Applique Pattern by Hooking Housewives

The blanket was really easy to make (it uses the super simple repetitive Blanket Stitch pattern), but since I used a lightweight baby yarn it seemed to take forever to work up. I think it took me a total of roughly 40 hours to complete this blanket. It would go a lot quicker using a medium weight yarn.

Supplies Used:

Bernat Baby Sport yarn- colors Baby Pink and White (about 3 large balls of pink for the blanket)

Big Twist Value yarn- color Soft Gray (for the elephant applique)

Mainstays Basics yarn- color Black (very small amount for the elephant’s eyes)

4.5 mm crochet hook for the blanket (but for my foundation ch for the blanket I used a 5 mm hook)

5 mm crochet hook for the elephant applique

Finished Measurements:

After the border, approximately 40 inches wide by 50 inches long.
