Tiger Blanket

This blanket started off as a project for one of my students who wanted to make a Tiger for her son.  I asked if she had a pattern in mind and she said "I thought you could design me one" - as they do! This is the result.

As she is a relatively new beginner to crochet, it was designed to be easy but also to teach new stitches and techniques.

I made one of these then just couldn’t resist making another five to match!  Having a son meant that so many of the baby blankets out there were just too pretty.  Each of these is suitable for a baby boy or a baby girl, just by altering the colour of the animal and the edging.

The animals are made separately then sewn on to the background with wadding in between to produce a 3D effect.  The tongue, nose and eyes are made separately and worked in as you go.  There are a few ends to sew in and you may find it easier to do this as you go along.

The wadding is optional.  It simply makes the animal stand out more when it is quilted on to the background.

Materials:  Stylecraft Special DK 200g White, 200g in chosen colour, small amounts in black, pink and deeper chosen colour, wadding (optional) 46 x 58 cm (18 x 23 in).
Equipment:  4.00mm hook, needle for sewing.
Tension:  16 sts and 20 rows to 10 cm (4 in)
Finished size:  Approx 63 x 81 cm (25 x 32 in)

The pattern includes a mini rainbow to hang on the cot or pram.

Materials:  Stylecraft Special DK, one of each in Lavender, Cloud Blue, Spring Green, Lemon, Apricot and Candyfloss, two in White
Equipment:  4.00mm hook, needle for sewing in ends.
Tension: Using the above materials, one complete motif measures 9cm tall and 17cm wide.
Finished size: Making the amount of motifs suggested in the pattern, the blanket measures approximately 60cm x 80cm.
