** This listing is for the 3 in 1 Safari Elephant Folding Baby Blanket PATTERN ONLY **

You will receive a 31 page detailed illustrated tutorial including the folding methods, link to video on how to crochet the stitch for the blanket and a print friendly pattern in large print.

I recommend this pattern to beginners who are familiar with more advanced stitches suck as crocheting in the front and back loop and who have attempted amigurumi before. All methods and techniques are explained in detail with photos.

What great idea! A cuddly warm blanket that the baby can play with and then it folds into a decorative pillow / armchair decor. This blanket is perfect for a minimalist home, it’s gender neutral and looks gorgeous when folded and rested on the armchair.

Just like my other 3 in 1 baby blankets, the Safari Elephant 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 elephant. 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 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 light grey color with light pink accents and will brighten any nursery, make it your own and choose any color that suits your color scheme and decor. Choose natural shades of white and grey for a neutral colored nursery or make it fun and playful with bright colors such as red, yellow, blue or purple. Your choice!

This pattern will create a baby blanket size 100cm by 75cm (46in by 29.5in), but you can make yours as small or as large as you like by changing the number of the starting chains and the number of rows.
