I recently made this Minecraft Creeper blanket for one of my favorite boys who just turned 9! He's the biggest Minecraft fan I know!
I used the chart for a knit version of the blanket which can be found on Own Two Hands (and on Ravelry HERE), to make this granny square version. I used a J hook and acrylic worsted weight yarn (mostly Vanna's Choice, and one Red Heart). The granny squares are 5 rounds, and joined as I went (which saves a TON of time)!
I did the black border in reverse single crochet, which always takes just a little bit longer, but I love how it looks.
And I'm happy to report that the blanket is well loved!
Do any of you play Minecraft? I must admit that I didn't know much about this game at all until recently!
