FAIRYTALE BLANKETS TO CROCHET

by Lynne Rowe

Do you know a child with a favourite storytime character? Crochet them a hooded blanket, then settle down to complete the entourage!

Bedtime bookworms will love snuggling up and listening to their favourite story in a cosy 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 colour 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.
