Paw patrol granny squares- puppie blanket

Paw patrol granny squares- puppie blanket

 

Why I did these paw patrol granny square – simple question and more simple answer – my daughter . She is 5 years old but she used to watch Nickelodeon and Baby tv since she was 12 months old. This paw patrol movie and all of the Nickelodeon ones played a big role in my baby’s language learning path.

And guess what – Paw patrol was and still is one of her favorite cartoons. So I thought that there were so many children as mine that adores these cute puppies crew and wanted to share my design with you.  I made 6 basic puppies granny squares- Marshall, Skye, Zuma, Rubble, Rocky and Chase. I used baby blue, lime and candy pink for main color of my granny squares but I think if I would make a blanket it will be in baby blue. I am just in love with the way that these browns look in blue.

I will give you granny square which last round is made with chain spaces and it could be difficult for some of you to join them so before join them you can add one more round make it the same way as the 2nd and 4th rd of the square even in different color and after that just join the squares with easy single crochet join method or slip stitch in back loops only method. My idea for the blanket is ( if I am going to make one- and I will probably ) to make the puppy squares in different colors and then join them with grey or white yarn. I hope that you will like making them and hope that your little ones will be just in love with their new blanket… So let’s begin .

Materials used :

DK weight cotton/acryl yarn in these colors – light brown, cream, dark brown, white , grey , black, blue, yellow, red, pink, purple, green,— these are for the puppies heads and hats . You can use whatever color you like for the granny square part I used dk weight yarn in yellow, pink and baby blue.

For the eyes we will need a small amount of thicker yarn I used fingering weight , you could also use sport weight yarn- in white, brown, blue, purple .

Crochet hook size 3,5mm – US hook size E – for the whole granny square

Crochet hook size 3mm- US hook size C- 2,75mm  – for the eyes of puppies

Tapestry needle , scissors .

Abbreviations :

Sc- single crochet    dc- double crochet     tr- triple crochet  hdc – half double crochet

Special stitches and tips :

If the number is written:

in front of the stitch – 3 hdc = work 3 hdc into the same stitch

after the stitch – hdc 3 = work hdc into next 3 stitches.

Row st – each row is counted as 1 st, we will make a stitch around the post of each 1st or last st of the rows of head.

Working between stitches – work the indicated stitch in the space between the stitches of prev round .

Tips – Leave longer yarn piece after ending every piece for sewing it later on the head .
