BLANKET SIZE: 28’’ (71 cm) width x 40’’ (102 cm) length

I came up with an idea for this multipurpose blanket with the thought of it being the baby’s favourite TOY TO PLAY as well as something to CUDDLE and KEEP WARM while sleeping. This blanket is especially handy when traveling either in a pram or a car seat. It’s not only SPACE SAVING (blanket and toy 2 in 1) but it also keeps the baby occupied in both folded and unfolded form. It can also be hung over the cot (and tied into it with ribbons) when not in use or for smaller babies to look at.

This Cuddle and Play 2 in 1 elephant blanket will make a cute, original, and at the same time practical CROCHET BABY SHOWER GIFT.


Crochet Hook:

K/10 ½ (6.5 mm) (used for blanket, ears, head, tail, and legs),

7 mm* or L/11 (8 mm) – additional hooks to help make looser sts if necessary,

E/4 (3.5 mm) hook – if you plan to crochet the eyes instead of embroidering and for surface sl sts.
