This cute 2in1 Woodland Owl Hooded Blanket is not just for girls. Change the color of the trim and head parts to blue for boys, or make it gender neutral by choosing a yellow or green trim for your blanket.

     This beautiful 2 in 1 hooded woodland owl blanket is also a decoration for your room. 

     Use it to keep warm and snugly, and when you are done with it, fold it and display it on your sofa, armchair or bed.

     The blanket is suitable for girls or boys alike, it is crocheted in neutral colors (grey) with a bright pink trim and head parts, but you can customise it by choosing your own color palette.

     It is designed to be a full body blanket, the pattern includes child and adult size head parts, hood and mittens. 




     The actual blanket can also be customised to fit a child or an adult and the pattern is explained in a way that you can make it as big or small as you would like it to be.

     Made with super chunky (super bulky / #6) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft, and works up in no time.

     The pattern will create a blanket size 100cm by 110cm (39in by 43.5in). 

     To customise the blanket, measure the distance from wrist to wrist (with the hands stretched) for the width, and shoulder to floor for the length.



I used the textures shell stitch for the blanket because it looks like ruffled feathers which is exactly the look I was after.

I have written a detailed step by step tutorial with photos and video on how to crochet the stitch used in this blanket HERE.

Supplies Used For This Pattern

The pattern is written in US terms.

- 13 x 100g balls of Marriner Yarns super chunky (super bulky/ #6) yarn in grey

- 2 x 100g balls of Marriner Yarns super chunky (super bulky/ #6) yarn in pink

- small quantity of Marriner Yarns super chunky (super bulky/ #6) yarn in black and white for the eyes

     Unfortunately Marriner Yarns is only found in the UK, so for my international customers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn , which comes is a multitude of colours and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.

- polyfill stuffing

- crochet hook size 10mm (optional a 11mm hook for the initial chain and first row if you are a tight crocheter)

- blunt sewing needle to fit the yarn used to stitch the parts together

- scissors

- sewing pins to pin the parts in place before sewing

     I get most of my crochet supplies from Amazon, it's fast and easy and I find everything I need in one place. 



     As this is a blanket made specifically for a 8 year old child, I will list the rough sizes and quantities needed to make a standard blanket for an adult. 

     Hopefully this will help you decide how much yarn you will need for your project.  

For a blanket size 125cm wide (wrist to wrist) and 150cm tall (shoulder to floor)


- 22 x 100g balls of Marriner Yarns super chunky (super bulky/ #6) yarn in grey

Special Stitches Used In This Pattern


Picot (p) – ch3, insert hook through the two loops at the top of the dc stitch and sl st.

Back Post Double Crochet (bpdc) – A stitch as a front loop and back loop that together look like a horizontal V (<). At the back of each <, there is a third loop called back post.

To double crochet in the back post, yo, insert hook from top to bottom under the back post, yo and pull a loop (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook), yo and pull through the last 2 remaining loops on hook.

Double Crochet 5 Together (dc5tog) – *Yo, insert hook in next chain, yo and pull up a loop (3 loops on hook), yo and pull through 2 loops (2 loops on hook)* x 5 times (you'll have 6 loops on hook), yo and pull through all 6 loops on hook. 


Gauge

Keep the tension relaxed, if your work is too tight, the ends will curl. Use one size up hook to make the foundation chain and first row.

Using the yarn weight and hook size suggested in this pattern will create a blanket size 100cm wide by 110cm tall (39in by 43.5in). 

Gauge for the blanket for a 10cm by 10cm (3.9in by 3.9in) area is 4 rows by 8 stitches.
