Charlotte is a cozy, cute little granny-square afghan with a giant argyle pattern that is perfect for story time, movie time, or anytime. Use it as a crib/car/stroller blanket, a tummy time mat, child's throw, or an adult's lapghan.
I designed this afghan to be a soft, portable comfort blanket for a really special little girl, and I hope her blanket makes you feel good when you use it, too.
If you're feeling really industrious, make enough for four smaller afghans and sew together, and it'll be big enough for a bedspread!
Each square measures 4" on each side.
Take time to check that all the squares are the same size as you go, to aid in sewing at the end.

I live on an orange ranch with my husband and two small children. Keeping them happy is a full-time job, but I still manage to squeeze in some time to knit or draw or sew whenever I can. Even though the days of crafting away an entire afternoon (ok, entire day) are gone, the joy of giving my kids something I made by hand makes up for it.
I love the challenge of designing something and ripping it out or starting over and trying again until I make it right. I really, really love to say, "I made that!"
One day I plan to write and illustrate some clever children's books, and maybe some strange art books for adults.
