My 3 year old has been asking me since I made the Apple Blanket if I would make him a Mickey blanket. He's a bit obsessed with Mickey Mouse at the moment and insists on being snuggled up in a blanket every time he sits down to watch TV. So I brainstormed how I wanted it to look and how I could go about making it easy but still include a few colors. I wanted to choose colors that go along with Mickey's Clubhouse instead of just the classic Mickey colors. This pattern went through SO many revisions before I finally decided I liked it. I even ripped out half my work when I realized I didn't like the orders the colors were in.
I'm happy with the final product and i'm ready to share it so you can go and make one for the Mickey lover in your life!
I used Hobby Lobby's I love this Yarn and a size H (5mm) crochet hook.
I ended up using one skein of each of these colors: Red, Black, Yellow and Aqua, and 4 skeins of white.
If you're not familiar with Corner to Corner crochet I definitely recommend checking out some videos online and learning. I feel like I picked it up quickly and the possibilities are endless!
Here's the graph for you to follow. Using the yarn and hook size I mentioned the blanket turns out to be a perfect square 45x45 inches. Its large enough for an adult size lap blanket and pretty much drowns my 3 year old. HA!
I finished my blanket with a border of single crochet around, followed by half double crochet around and then finished it with another single crochet around. I put 2 stitches in each corner to keep them from curling.
I think it would also be cute just a simple black and white blanket! Go crazy and get creative!
