Crochet Your Mood Blanket 2014 - March Square - Free pattern

Yes, it's time again for a new Square for March!

I was pondering what to do for this square. In the meanwhile I was working on a few other projects, My Watermelophant, a new spring flower project and my Color Explosion Ottoman.

I was watching the kids play and their inflatable ottomans were just bugging me. I don't like stuff with popular characters on it. I think it's ugggggly. But the kids like it and I can't stop other people from giving it to them. So I told Aoibhinn I will make a pretty rainbow cover. She wasn't to sure. But as soon as I finished it, she loved it! Now I have to make another one for the boy. Because he likes the lovely colours as well! And I have a few more requests, but I have to figure out supplies and price first before I can commit to orders.

I love it. It lights up the room by just sitting there!!!

But we're here for the March Square and it's a beauty!!

Free Pattern - Toy - WaterMelophant Handpuppet - LOVE!

I was watching "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" with the kids. And just the idea of food and animals combined was brilliant in my mind! Amazing the foodimals they have come up with, Fla-Mango's, Shrimpansees and so many more! And off course the WaterMelophant! So funny! And I and the kids fell in love with them.

I had a few ideas in my head forming and I started playing with my Phildar and needle... and 2 days later this is the result!

I LOVE IT!!! And so do the kids!!!

I wrote the pattern down while making it. I haven't tested it and hoping by following it, you will have the same result. To make it bigger, you have to adjust the increase rows in the beginning, but once you increase them, you have to increase the mouth circle and the trunk. So write down what you do!

If you have any questions, let me know!

Pattern after the break!
