Animal-A-Long, crochet

Week 11 – The header and footer – Animal-a-long

We are nearly on the home straight! Only this week and next to go, and you will have your very own Animal blanket.

This week we have the headers and the footers. I spent a long time (far too long) deciding what these should actually say.

What would fit in with a Sloth, a llama, and a frog?

That was the question – I thought about Jungle friends – but then someone pointed out that a giraffe was the Savannah (as was a lion)

So what do you do?

Well, I decided that I was going to go with

Animal Friends

Using all the yarn colours you’ve had for your backgrounds, and then the colours you have chosen for the outline of the squares last week.

The charts are below as always, if you want to do the same.

I also thought, if you wanted to make this as birth/christening gift, you could add the name and the Date of birth of the baby too – to make it completely personal.

So, I’ve made a whole alphabet and numbers – so you can design it yourself. Either use graph paper or use Stitch fiddle to make the chart to follow.
