Freddy's Fabulous Knitted Blanket of Many Colours #Project 52

How To Knit A Patchwork Blanket.

My mum is a fabulous knitter.  She knits love into every stitch as she creates beautiful 'Nana Knits' for her grandchildren.  Her latest creation is a gorgeous patchwork style blanket embellished with cute hand-knitted mini-beasts.  She made it by knitting squares...casting on 30 stitches and knitting  for 5"... which were then all sewn together.  She then knitted six mini-beasts that she sewed on randomly.

The result is a unique blanket that Freddy absolutely adores.  His excitement upon seeing his new snuggly was so adorable.  He named all the colours and said how wonderful it was, squealing with delight that thrilled his Nana.  He adores the spiders and ladybirds that add a real element of fun to the finished blanket.

He loves snuggling up under his new patchwork blanket :)  Thanks to his wonderful Knitting Nana!
