Crocheted Owl Lovey Blanket

I am very embarrassed to say that I started this blanket while Kim was still pregnant and just finished it the other day!!! I can’t believe it took me this long but I told myself the other day that I can’t get started on the things I want to make for Christmas until I get rid of my WIP’s!  This is one of a few more that I need to get done before I can start… and with their only being 4 months until Christmas… I had better get my butt in gear!!!

I started this project with the actual blanket part.  The blanket is pretty much just a large (18 inch by 18 inch) granny square. Here is the tutorial post Kim did for making granny squares…. Granny Squares. I alternated between white, orange and gray for this blanket.
