Big Boy Blanket – #1 Rocket

Happily Hooked is very pleased to introduce the 24-Week Big Boy Blanket!

This blanket will be made up of twelve 12″ squares, each themed with something that boys love. We’ll be releasing a new pattern every 2 weeks.

These squares are created with tapestry crochet. You can make them in single crochet, half-double crochet, puff stitches, or even corner-to-corner. You can weave in the ends or back your blanket with fabric–you’re only limited by your imagination!

New to this type of crochet? Check out our blog post on Reading Crochet Graphs from Wednesday! Or, just follow along with the crochet stitch instructions below.

We’d love to see how your project turns out – please share your pictures on the Happily Hooked Facebook page, or on Instagram with the hashtag #HappilyHooked
