My name is Doni, and I live in Indiana with my wonderful husband and 4 adorable (and sometimes bratty) cats :) I caught the crafting bug early, and love to crochet, knit, quilt, sew, cross stitch, embroider, and papercraft just to name a few :) But my biggest passion is crocheting which I've been doing since my Grandma taught me when I was 8 years old.

Monkey Onesie Baby Blanket consists of 4 blocks that are each made by working color changes by following a color graph/chart to stitch the onesie design into the block. The monkey face and other appliques are made separately and stitched onto the onesies.
For more information on how to do color changes, please see my photo tutorial on my blog: http://whiskersandwool.blogspot.com/2010/07/changing-colors-tutorial-some-helpful.html
The onesie blocks are stitched in single crochet, and the borders use half double crochet and double crochet.
Blanket can be made for a boy or a girl. The boy blanket includes a star applique in addition to the monkey face, and the girl blankets includes a flower applique.
Finished size is 33" wide x 35" tall
