1 | Crochet Animal Alphabet Applique Afghan

Animal Alphabet Applique Baby Blanket Crochet Pattern

This animal alphabet blanket is totally adorable, and the perfect addition to any baby’s nursery! Each animal is an applique which is then attached to the base blanket. I really like the striped border on this one too!

2 | Vintage Pigs on Parade Baby Blanket

Vintage Pigs on Parade Crochet Pattern Baby Afghan

I love vintage patterns and this pigs on parade design is totally adorable! Just look at those little curly tails with bows on! This is a blanket that will have people stopping to ask just where you got it from! I’m not sure about the black border though, I know it matches the ribbons but I think I’d switch it out. Maybe to a dark pink like on their noses?

3 | Vintage Noah’s Ark Cot Blanket

Vintage Noahs Ark Baby Crochet Blanket

Or how about this fabulous Noah’s Ark blanket? There’s a pair of doves, elephants, camels, sheep, hippos and giraffe in applique, and then of course the ark, Mr and Mrs Noah, a rainbow, clouds and stars.

This project would be a joy to make and would be much loved by the child who receives it.
