3in1 Farm Horse Folding Baby Blanket Toy Lovey Crochet Pattern

I have decided to finish the 3in1 farm animal baby blanket collection this year and the horse seemed like the perfect one to make after the sheep version.


Did you know...


THIS YEAR I DECIDED TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY AND SO ALL MY PATTERNS WILL BE FREE FOR THE FIRST 3 DAYS FROM RELEASE

THIS PATTERN IS NOT FREE ANYMORE, BUT YOU CAN FOLLOW MY BLOG AND FACEBOOK PAGE TO BE NOTIFIED WHEN OTHER PATTERNS GO LIVE AND YOU WON'T MISS OUT AGAIN

FIND THE INEXPENSIVE PATTERN IN MY ETSY STORE AND RAVELRY STORE



Just like my other 3 in 1 baby blankets, the 3in1 Farm Horse Baby Blanket acts as a toy, a blanket and a decoration for your loved one's room.

Unfold it and keep your child warm and snuggly while he is entertained playing with the horse.

Once done, fold it back and it instantly transforms into a decorative item that you can rest on the arm chair or the side of the cot.


Made with two strands of double knit (light worsted) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft, but light in weight, perfect for babies of all sizes and ages.

The blanket is crocheted in gender neutral warm shades of brown and will fit any nursery.

Make it your own and choose any color that suits your color scheme and decor, from pinks for baby girls to blues for baby boys.

This pattern will create a baby blanket size 100cm by 75cm, but the pattern is explained in such a way you can make yours as large or small as you like by changing the number of the starting chains and the number of rows.

Pin it for later

Supplies Used



- 6 x 100g balls of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in brown (mink)

- 1 x 100g balls of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in cream (oat)

- small quantities of Marriner DK Yarn (light worsted yarn) in dark brown (chocolate)



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.

- toy stuffing


- crochet hooks size 4mm and 6mm

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

- 10mm black doll safety eyes

- scissors

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

Learn how to crochet the stitch used for this blanket with this illustrated tutorial and video




Special Stitches



Single Crochet Back Loop Only (sc blo) – A stitch has a front and back loop that meet at one end and look like an horizontal V (looks like this >). 

To single crochet in the back loop only, insert the hook in the middle of the V from top and under the back loop (the loop that is away from you), yo and draw up a loop. 

Yarn over and pull through the two loops.

Bobble Stitch (bo) - Yo, insert hook into the stitch, yo and pull up a loop (you have 3 loops on your hook), yo and pull through 2 loops (you have 2 loops on your hook). 


Repeat this step 4 more times in the same stitch ( you will have 6 loops on your hook), yo and pull through all 6 loops.

Single Crochet 7 Together (sc7tog) – *insert hook into the next stitch, yo and pull up a loop* x 7 , you'll have 8 loops on your hook, yo and pull through all the loops on hook.


Gauge

The blanket part of the design is worked holding two strands of double knit yarn together.

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.

Gauge is not very important in this pattern. For your reference, a 10cm by 10cm area has 5 rows and 9 stitches.

Using the yarn weight and hook recommended in this pattern will create a baby blanket 100cm by 75cm in size.
