Teddy bear C2C crochet baby blanket

My previous post was about a Betty Boop blanket I crocheted for my aunt, this it’s a baby blanket I made for My cousins son who is 5 years old. I honestly didn’t think he would use it for anything but like sleeping, so My mind wasn’t anywhere like a Linus blanket.

So he opened it on Christmas and he said “Oh, it’s a blanket.”  My aunt warned me that he’s 5 and he already has a blanket that he carries everywhere and nothing will ever replace it. That’s not what I was hoping for. I just wanted to make him a blanket, that’s all.

So later that night he was playing with his new video game in his parents room and I brought his blanket to him and he paused the game and said “I like your blanket, but I already have a mommy blanket that I use so I will probably use your blanket when I sleep in bed.”

LMAO I looked at him like hey no problem. My intention wasn’t to give him a Linus blanket, I just wanted to make him a blanket. How he uses it is really up to him, and it was cute and funny how he explained to me that he was basically going to use, but only on his terms.

I think he’s the cutest little thing and I hope to be able to watch him grow up, which it’s nearly impossible since I live so far away, but I’ll try.

    What type of yarn do you use? I made a couple pictures blankets years ago but they stretched out quickly. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

      I used I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby for the Teddy Bear blanket. The Betty Boop was made with a mixture of I Love This Yarn and Red Heart. They had different thicknesses and textures, but it turned out ok. I would suggest when washing it if it’s stretching out to use a lot of fabric softener when you wash it.
