WOW, what a crazy week! The crochet Hooded Owl Blanket went viral. It has taken over the internet with a crazy 39 million views on FB in under a week!
In 2015 my shark and mermaid crochet patterns went viral, but the crochet hooded owl blanket is an even bigger hit! Facebook shares are almost double the shark with 424K shares and counting. I’m blown away and humbled by the love I’ve received for my crochet patterns. I can honestly say every day; I’m excited to wake up and do what I love.
I put care and detail into all my crochet patterns, and I’m constantly looking for ways to grow and improve my design skill and knowledge. My crochet cocoon blankets are very popular, but I think hooded animal blankets are going to be the next big thing.
My girls fell in Love with the crochet hooded owl blanket immediately and I have to say I could snuggle up in this blanket all day!
The Hooded Owl Blanket crochet pattern makes an adorable crochet throw or tuck it into the hood for a super cute owl pillow!
Purchase the crochet hooded owl blanket HERE. Don’t be intimidated by that beautiful crochet stitch. The shell and V stitch tutorial is on my YOUTUBE channel HERE, also known as the Arcade Stitch. It’s a gorgeous crochet shell stitch. The large crochet shells are offset and worked so that they all go in the same direction.

I don’t sell the crochet hooded owl blanket. I only sell the crochet pattern. I’m focusing on creating crochet patterns, so I no longer have the time to crochet blankets to sell. Buy the PATTERN HERE
I have a list below of a few Makers who have contacted me interested in making blankets. If you’re a buyer, I suggest you look at the Makers FB or webpages and determine for yourself the quality of their work, checking out pics of their finished products and reading customer reviews.
You’ll find a lot of sellers out there using my photos, but this gives you no indication of what they can do! Beware of mass-producing companies selling these blankets for $25 or ridiculously low prices.
You get what you pay for, so if you’re looking for an identical blanket to the ones I’ve made, they will be costly. These blankets work up fairly quickly, so many sellers should be posting pictures of Crochet Owl Blankets soon! Etsy is also a great place to look, but here are a few pages you can check out!
