Big Boy Blanket – #2 Sports!

We hope you enjoyed the first pattern of our Big Boy Blanket! If you missed it, you can find it here.

Our second square of the Big Boy Blanket is something that my 16-year-old still loves: sports! From basketball to football to soccer, boys have a fascination with throwing, kicking, hitting, and bouncing balls of all shapes and sizes.

Have fun with this block and don’t forget to share your progress on Social Media with the hashtag #HappilyHooked
