Are you an Elephant Lover?? If you are you’re going to love this new design! The Hooded Elephant Blanket is cozy and lovable. I’ve added a new size just for babies and toddlers! The blanket pattern also comes in child as pictured above plus adult size for the young at heart. It’s made using 2 strands of Bernat Softee Chunky. For those of you that love my quick and bulky designs you know how fast this blanket will work up! If you’re making the baby size you’ll only need to use one strand.

My Favourite Q Hook that I can’t live without is needed for Child and Adult size
You will need a wide range of hook sizes for this pattern. I love using Susan Bates Crystallite hooks. When I started crocheting Walmart sold these hooks. Unfortunately they switched brands so you can only buy them online. Check them out here on Amazon.
Crochet Hook Requirements:
Child & Adult
US Q (16mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
US O/17 (11.5 mm)
US M/13 (9mm)
US G/6 (4 mm)
US N/15 (10mm) or size needed to obtain gauge
US L/11 (8mm)
This pattern comes with a quick video tutorial. It goes over the stitch pattern and how to make the base of the hood. These are the typical questions I get asked for my patterns. I think the video is a nice added bonus to make sure you’re successful at making this blanket. You can check out all my videos HERE. Always check your pattern for a coupon code. Most of them are FREE with your pattern purchase.
My cousin is expecting a baby boy this October and she has an Elephant themed nursery. I wanted to make her a cozy blanket for the baby. Our baby size is 38″ wide so that it will wrap up the baby nice and snug!
The hood will be a bit big at first but will make the perfect toddler play toy as he gets older. When not being played with the blanket rolls up and makes a cute display pillow for the nursery.
Of course I had to make larger sizes too! Everyone should be able to enjoy this blanket. Elephants are such beautiful intelligent animals. Definitely one of my favourites! I hope you enjoy this pattern and can share a blanket with someone who loves them too.
