Instructions for BLANKET:

NOTES:
-Blanket, eye sections, beak, flower, and leaf are worked in joined rounds with right side facing at all times.

-Increases are made by working into the top of the indicated stitch and then by working around the post of the same stitch.

-Rounds 1–6 of blanket are the owl’s body. Owl’s body parts, branches, leaves, and flowers are worked separately and sewn to blanket. Leave long tails for sewing when fastening off.

-When sewing pieces to blanket, insert the needle horizontally through the top of the stitches on the right side of the blanket so your stitching doesn’t show on the wrong side.

I love making blankets for little ones. Especially ones that carry are just too cute like this one. This will definitely be on my crochet to do list. I also love yarn from Red heart, the colors are beautiful. The little owl on top is whimsical and owls are very popular now.

As always, Michele Wilcox's patterns are easy to follow and turn out so cute! I made this for a friend who is having a baby boy. It won 2nd in the local fall fair for crocheted baby afghans. Thank you!

I made two of these afghans and they both came out adorable. The pattern was super easy to follow.

Cute and easy pattern. Made 2, took only a couple of days. Thanks for sharing this pattern
