Blankies

 I got these fleece blankets at Walmart for $4 each.  They already had the blanket stitch edging so all I had to do was crochet a border on. I couldn't resist making little monkey hats to go with the monkey blankets, which are pastel green, the picture doesn't show the color well.  For the pink polka dot blanket I made the striped sweater using the colors of the dots.

Hi Kelly ... Those blankies and extras are gorgeous. Where do you get your edge patterns from? Also, are the monkey ears just half circles or is there a pattern for them ? I do lots of charity crochet and hats are one of my favourite projects.

I just made up the edges as I went. First I did a row of single crochet on all of them. For some of them I did shells (2dc,ch2,2dc) in same stitch then skip 3scs and work shell around, or I just did DC's around.

The ears are circles folded in half.
