Howling Wolf Blanket – Crochet Pattern

The Howling Wolf Blanket is a new individual pattern that coordinates with the rest of the blanket designs in the Interchangeable Wildlife Blanket ebook. All the blanket patterns feature a striking animal silhouette that is framed with a beautiful crochet texture in a frame (border) of the blanket. 

The Howling Wolf blanket was inspired by the lovely bold Native American decor that I love seeing in so many different settings. This blanket will appeal to so many different people though. It will touch everyone on a different level giving them that “warmth of home”, “weekend at the cabin” or “my native land” feel.

The design in the blanket panels features a unique feathering look to the stitches. This is actually a very easy stitch to crochet and you will love the look and feel it creates.

Howling Wolf Side Panel

The corner pieces of the Howling Wolf blanket feature a whimsical look. Resembling a dream catcher or some have said wagon wheel, this cornerstone to your blanket will set off just the right detail to make it pop!

About the Pattern

I used Lion Brand Heartland yarn for the rich burnt orange color. I love working with this line of yarn. It is soft, works up nicely, makes your stitches stand out and washes up well. For the white background color it is essential that you either use the same brand and weight of yarn, or use a yarn that has the same WIP (wraps per inch). I used Caron Simply Soft for the background resulting in 2 different yarns that worked well together.  

The main silhouette panel has multiple formats in the pattern for you to choose from. A chart, or graph, is used to crochet the bear silhouette. At the end of the pattern, there is an included enlarged graph, simply print off all 4 pages and tape them together.

If you are unfamiliar with crocheting from a graph then your in luck. A supplement has been added to the pattern to assist you along the way. The supplement is a written form of the graph and is explained in a little more detail. Essentially, it states how many stitches to complete in each color. This supplement can also be used as a way to double check the accuracy of your work.

The Forest Friends blanket is larger than a traditional baby blanket. This will allow for the baby to grow into it and use the blanket into childhood or even when they are older, or even better, it can be a nice size for me (mom) to wrap up in. The completed size of the blanket is roughly 38” wide X 54” long. Grab your copy of only the Forest Friends Blanket on Ravelry: HERE or Etsy: HERE.
