Crochet Hooded Woodland Skunk Blanket

The Woodland Collection continues to grow!  We’ve just released the Crochet Hooded Woodland Skunk Blanket.  This little guy will warm the skunk lovers heart!  He’s as cozy as he is cute.

We’ve graphed an extra large size tail onto his back and gave him a gorgeous loopy stitch maw-hawk hood.

When I think of skunks I can’t help but think of Flower from the beloved movie Bambi.  I just needed to throw in a Bonus Flower pattern with this design.  Flowers can be a bit tricky to follow on paper so I was sure to include the tutorial in the video :>)

Our skunk pattern includes little paw shaped mitts with nails!  The extra detail is fun to add and I show you how easy it is in the VIDEO

Kids can’t have all the fun so all my blankets include Adult sizes too!  When it’s time to stash your blanket away fold it up and tuck in the hood for a cute pillow to display.

Rabbit collection

To get started you’ll need to order some yarn.  These blankets are made using 1 strand of Super Bulky.  Sprightly Yarns Super Bulky Acrylic Wool is super thick so 1 strand is all you’ll need for a bulky cozy blanket.  Sprightly is Exclusive to Craftsy and can only be purchased online.

The best alternative to this yarn is Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick.  You can purchase online here or find in many local stores.

For those of you that love Bernat Blanket yarn it will work great too!

You’ll also need a 16mm crochet hook to whip you through this design.  I love Susan Bates hooks!  This is my favourite hook that I use for all my Bulky & Quick blankets.

Bulky Q Hook

For all the little details you’ll also need a 9mm and 4.5mm crochet hook.  Also some scrap worsted weight yarn in black and white.  Buttons are used for the eyes to give this collection a rustic and old fashioned look.  25-30mm size is just perfect.  I prefer a 4 hole button to get the X shape when you sew them on the hood.
