Diddy the Teddy Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

Diddy the Teddy Blanket

Diddy the Teddy Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern

Created by ©BeejuiCreations 2018-2021

Diddy the Teddy Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern. My inspiration for this pattern was a request for table place settings/favours for babies that were attending a wedding.  These were made to match the wedding colours with their names embroidered on, but these can be made in any colour with or without the name.

Process

Attach the four leaf clover brooch to the centre of each granny square and add an extra row around outside edge of granny square.

Make as many as you need and swap the contrasting colours, like I have done. These could be turned into a blanket or table runner, you decide.
