Funny face blanket (small version)
I finally finished a small version of the crochet blanket I made for Smallest Granddaughter when she was a baby. She had requested granny to make her a blanket for her doll and due to spraining my wrist before Easter, I've only just finished it. The small version uses a modified version of the same "Funny Face" pattern so each square is smaller and also fewer squares, of course. I handed the completed blanket over during our visit to Cardiff.

Apparently the big version was much admired when Smallest Granddaughter was still small enough to need a pushchair. I think the small version worked out well too.

Thank you. :) I don't see the grandchildren as often as I'd like, but I like making things for them.

That's so cute! The critters in various shades of brown all appear to be bears, but not the white ones. Are they bunnies? Kitties?

Thanks. It took ages, partly because I couldn't crochet for weeks due to the sprained wrist, but I was pleased with the way it came out in the end.

Reading from L to R here's what the creatures are supposed to be:

Bear (brown) / Bear (golden)
Bear (brown) / Bunny(white)
Bear (golden) / Bear (brown)
Kitten (white) / Bunny(brown)
Bear (brown) / Kitten (white)

The animals are easier to distinguish on the original blanket, which is larger.

And that's just what they look like, too! I'd missed the brown bunny the first time.

I'm glad your wrist is better!
