“Explode[s] with cuddle-factor! It doesn’t matter what they’re into—unicorns, wolves, dragons or princesses, one of these hooded blankets will surely suit.” —Inspirations Newsletter
Bedtime bookworms will love snuggling up and listening to their favorite story in a cozy hooded blanket. Bring storytime to life as they act 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 lion and a unicorn. Each blanket can be made in two sizes: for toddlers (age 2 to 4) and for young children (age 5 to 7).
Along with crochet techniques, there are suggestions for varying the yarn color to create a different character (changing a polar bear into a brown bear, for example) and you can choose between a rounded or a pointed hood. Lynne has also designed a strip of matching bunting to accompany each project.
Every 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.
