I had this idea in mind for a blanket for a long time, but kept getting side tracked with other patterns and ideas. So, I finally sat down and told myself I was going to get it done and make it happen. I wanted a baby blanket that was perfect for a little boy, but could be used for a little girl as well.
I wanted the blanket to have texture and design, but yet can be simple and cute! So, as I was working on another project this came to me and I quickly jotted it down.
The monkey was SO MUCH FUN to design and crochet! He just adds that extra pop to the blanket and makes it all I was hoping it would be!
I hope you enjoy making your monkey blanket as much as I did designing it!! I can't wait to see all of your Swinging Monkey Blankets! Be sure to share!
