Dinosaur Hooded Blanket

My daughter loves her Dinosaur Hat and Dinosaur Hooded Scarf so much that I decided she needed something to have around the house too. I decided a hooded blanket in the same colors and style would be perfect for her to snuggle with.

This is a very easy pattern to make. If you have already made my hat and hooded scarf patterns, this project will be no problem for you.

This blanket can easily be adjusted to be longer by adding more rows of double crochet to the blanket section, or be made wider by starting with a longer starting chain.

My daughter loves having this blanket to snuggle up in while reading all her dinosaur books.
