Flufy's Granny Square Blanket
My son, who likes to call himself “Flufy,” has Cozy down to a science. Wherever he happens to be, if there’s a couch with a blanket, he’ll crawl underneath and make himself right at home. So, when it was his turn to be on the receiving end of a significant Mom-made project, I knew that he would appreciate a lap blanket.
The project in this ebook is the exact blanket I made for Flufy. This is a great do-together project, if the recipient is old enough to follow a few simple color-choice rules.
The project is great for beginners! If you can:
make a slip knot
then you can do this.
TOOLS AND MATERIALS
Flufy’s blanket measures 42”x52” and consists of ten rows of eight squares.
