This crochet toddler blanket is not only perfect for toddlers, but can also be used as a lapghan by adults. It is super soft and warm, making it great for everyone to snuggle underneath.
And if you reduce the length a bit, this could also be used as a floor blanket for babies. As a matter of fact, it is so soft and cushiony, that children of all ages will enjoy this on the floor! Simply adjust the size in the multiple provided for a custom fit. Use this blanket sizing chart to help in terms of standard measurements.
Another bonus of this blanket is that it works up super quick!!! The super bulky yarn produces big stitches, even with an 8mm hook, I found that it worked up super quick. The only thing that I found to be on the negative side is that I had to put my work down a few times due to my hands and wrists getting sore.
Perhaps another negative would be a slight slant in the overall fabric due to the stitch pattern. But even with that, it is easy to overlook as the slanted cluster is very appealing, especially in a super bulky yarn. I have not tried to block it out, so not sure if it works with this yarn or not. If anyone tries it, would you let us know in the comments below?
