Alfie age five has a love for the movie Epic and the colour green, therefore after I made some crochet baby blankets for my niece he decided to challenge me with the request for an Epic ‘Leafman’ green blanket.
Challenge accepted and we embarked on collecting as many greens and similar leafy colours as we could find
I had used Elizabeth Ham You tube tutorial for a Granny Biased blanket previously, however I felt It needed to be a little bit bigger so I adapted it to my needs and got underway.
As the blanket got larger and heavier I realised this possibly wasn’t a summer project but kept on with it and it kept on growing and i spent my time a little buried, my size increase may have been a little too much!
My plan was to do a large ‘A’ but Alfie wanted his full name and leaves so I found another tutorial and made his name.
Finally after a month I finished, and yes it is huge!
Alfie is very pleased and was super excited to snuggle even though its really not the weather for snuggling under a blanket!
