This is my Safari Blanket Pattern - it uses US crochet terms and is made with Stylecraft Special DK yarn and a 4mm hook.

The blanket has 13 different animals/ birds. I have tried to keep the patterns as simple as I can by using the same method for the body/ chest/ heads and feet.

I have included two different types of patterns for the leaves squares - there are intarsia and applique versions. So you can choose which one you would prefer to do! the intarsia ones have colour block instructions and a chart to follow.

I have used a corner leaf pattern on each of the squares - this is worked as part of the granny square and is not an applique. The squares measure approx 18cm x 18cm. The finished blanket measures approx 100cm x100cm.
the squares are joined together using the continuous flat braid join method and it is finished with a leaf border.

The Pattern consists of the following

  1. Blank Leaf Square
  2. Lion
  3. Tiger
  4. Leopard
  5. Monkey
  6. Sloth
  7. Rhino
  8. Hippo
