Boys-Crochet-Blanket





I have finally finished the Boys Will Be Boys Blanket for my son. He loves it. I caught him taking his own photo's of all the appliques the other night :) The pattern for the main blanket is free. I also have other free base patterns than can be used instead. If you look in the right side bar you will see the links to the pages. The appliques were designed to be interchangeable between the blankets.








Clicking on the 'buy now' button will take you to PayPal and your pattern will be sent to you via Ravelry. Each applique is $2 USD. Clicking on each picture will take you to their individual Ravelry page.

  3. Teri! Thank you for providing such darling patterns at a very reasonable price! I just ordered 4 books and can't wait to start making all 4 afghans! This is also a great way to use up scrap yarn for the appliques:) I love to create for children and these will become cherished treasures for them. I am just finishing a child's afghan and will start one of these next.

    1. Hi there,

      Moda Vera is a Spotlight brand, as I am in New Zealand you might not be able to get it where you live. Any light worsted weight yarn can be substituted.
