My mom is frequently cold, so for her birthday gift I've been playing with this idea of knitting a warm blanket for her. I want it to be all-inclusive, with a hood to keep her head warm, and sleeves or pockets to keep her arms and hands warm as well.
It sounds like a jacket, but I don't want it to look like a jacket. I want it to look like a rather large shawl/poncho with a hood.
I'm even open to crochet, which I'm not totally familiar with but I'm a quick learner ;]
I figured finding a pattern for it would be easy, but I've come across no such luck. I'm searching for seperate patterns to piece together, mix and match, and wing it and hope for the best! However, any any ANY help you guys can offer me would be much appreciated! Does anyone have any tips or point me in the direction of where I can find some? Thanks so much!
By the way, this is so cute! I keep glimpsing at it while I'm typing, such distracting little smileys. -> :knitting:
