This blanket turns into amigurumi toy in seconds! I came up with an idea for this multipurpose blanket with a thought of it being baby’s favourite TOY TO PLAY as well as something to CUDDLE and KEEP WARM while sleeping. This blanket is especially handy when travelling 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 hanged over the cot (and tied in to it with ribbons) when not in use for smaller babies to look at.
Thanks to using bobble stitch and chunky yarn in this design, the blanket will keep the baby nice and warm even on the cold day.
This Cuddle and Play 2 in 1 sheep blanket will make a cute, original and at the same time practical BABY SHOWER GIFT.


Pattern is written over 7 pages and contains very detailed written description supported by a lots of notes, photos, links to tutorials and videos.
I’ve also included 1 page photo instruction to show how to fold the blanket to turn it into a plush sheep toy. This is available to download as a separate pdf file when you purchase the pattern and it can be easily printed out and enclosed with the blanket if you are gifting it to someone.
