The Welcome Blanket Project aims to connect people already living in the United States residents with our country’s new immigrants through stories and handmade blankets, providing both symbolic and literal comfort and warmth.
I recently came across the beautiful princess dress crochet blanket patterns by Carol L. Hladik and just have to share them here in case you haven’t spotted them, yet. I thought I’d also share a collection of other blankets that are unique and special in a similar way – blankets that serve almost as costumes, blankets with arms like Snuggies but designed with handmade flair. Here they are.
This year I completed one of my favorite crochet makes, yet – a blue ombre chevron crochet blanket.
I recently made this large crochet granny square blanket that I ended up gifting as a baby blanket to a pregnant friend of mine. I rarely work in yellow but ended up loving it.
I’ve made a number of different large granny square crochet blankets. First I make a really large square, almost the width that I want the finished item to be (but not quite).
