So cool! You make it look so easy.
this is so cool!! i love your tutorial! putting a pin in the 4th chain to mark what is actually the 4th chain is a GOOD idea!!
Oh thank you for this! I am SO in love with this blanket! And I am left handed too (they really need to make some left-handed knitting and crocheting books right?) So it is PERFECT!You really did a beautiful job with this blanket!
Thank you! Thank you!
Thank you so much for sharing ... this is beautiful. I have 4 grandsons and Lego is one of my favourite toys so I may have a go at this! xx
Wow! Thanks for the tutorial. Madwomanlace has a beautiful tatting posted as well. I am impressed by tatting too.
What are the approximate dimensions of this blanket? I'm trying to figure out how much bigger to make it for my son... and - what about the individual blocks? How big are they?
Thank you for such a great (detailed) tutorial. My son will love this.
This will be perfect for my son's Lego Themed room!! :) Thank you so much, this is a great pattern. Hope I can make it, and will definitely report on this.
Thanks a million! This is marvellous and so much fun!Greetings from Germany
I had the same question as Sarah-What are the dimensions of the blanket? I guess I could make a square and then try to estimate it? Love this pattern and so glad you posted the directions. Thank you!!!
This blanket is 24 inch x 36 inch. The dimensions of just one lego is about 3 inch x 4 inch.
This is a wonderful idea. My husband loves legos so I'm sure he will want me to make this for our kids some day. I'll have to keep this bookmarked for later!!
One of my friends on Pinterest showed me this, and I'm not a great crocheter, but with your awesome tutorial, I think I can take it on! This is such an awesome idea. Thank you for sharing!
Wonderful idea! My son love Legos and I love to crochet, although I've never been able to follow a pattern. I got started a few days ago (StarWars colors-black, grey, red & blue), and with the help of your wonderful tutorial its going beautifully! Thank you for sharing!!
how many skeins of each color did you need?
I used a little over 2 skeins for each color. (So you'll have to buy 3 of each) Except I only used 1 skein of white.
This is awesome! I love that you took all those photos. Thank you for the great tutorial on this blanket. I'd love for you to link up and share: http://tutusandteaparties.blogspot.com/2012/01/pinteresting-party-week-24.html
THANK YOU SO MUCH!!! I saw this on Pinterest, pinned it, and immediately started following you! I just tonight (January 29) finished crocheting the ponchos I made for my 2 oldest granddaughters for Christmas. The grandsons (5 of them) are a little bit jealous and I had been thinking about what I could crochet for them. This is PERFECT! I can make it a square at a time at work, and if I start now I may be able to finish by this coming Christmas, LOL! Thank you again, may you have a blessed year.Gabby
I made a pillow out of 8 of the "legos" for my grandson for Christmas! You can find pics on my blog, I didn't know how else to share them with you.http://brendasbric-a-brac.blogspot.com/2012/02/i-found-pattern-for-lego-afghan-at-all.html
I found your pattern on Pinterest and loved it. It is exactly what I was looking to make for a friend's baby. Thanks for sharing!
Are you doing white border BEFORE connecting the squares together? (it doesn't look like 2 rows of white)
I found out what to do...never mind the question.
Lovely blanket. Regarding left handed crocheters/knitters - I have a left handed friend who taught herself to crochet using a right-handed book and a mirror!
I just finished one of these for my Lego obsessed 8 year old. Thanks so much for the pattern. I posted mine on pinterest (where I found the pattern in the first place) and I posted the link to your pattern. Awesome job! Appreciate your creativity :)
I'm really crazy about it! :)
I have 3 kids, all of whom love Legos, so I will be busy for quite some time! But, your photo tutorial is very clear and helpful. Thank you for posting this pattern!
I am SO genetically-unable to do this but thanks for trying so hard with a fantastic tutorial.I am in awe of your creativity and love of the Brick :-)
very nice design!!! I now want to make one for my grandson...
What a delightful pattern. I will be making it for my grandson very soon. Thank you for the pattern.
AWESOME blanket, attempting this now and sucussfully made the first brick. I love the directions, there were super easy to follow since I don't know the crochet language, thanks again.
Great job! I love it! So fun for a little one - tactile, bright, and an early introduction to the most amazing toy ever!
Incredible!! I love it! thank your for share your work
THANK YOU.(My english ist not so good....(Lea
I have 5 grandchildren--4 girls and only 1 boy. The girls are easy, but I have the hardest time finding good boy things to make. My boy is 6 and he loves Legos, so this is perfect. I've just started crocheting again after many years, but I will give this a try. Thank you so much for sharing this pattern and the great tutorial.
Oh my goodness...THANK YOU!!! I have been searching forever for a Lego blanket. Love it!
This is amazing! One question, Did you chain 1 before you did a single crochet around? Did you start the single crochet on the short side or on the long side? I've never really single crocheted around anything so I feel like I'm just guessing a little....
Nice. A friend pointed this out to me. I am also a left handed crocheter/knitter. My one question: How much yarn did you actually use? How many skeins total?
THANK YOU! so much for this great idea and tutorial - I love it!!!
Oh, so awesome! Love that you are a lefty as well so that the photos will make sense to me and I won't have to turn things around in my head.
I am new to crocheting - in fact, your pattern is what made me learn to crochet last weekend! I am just fine-tuning the basic stitches before I tackle this project. Quick question for you though: What size of hook do you use?
Thank you for this tutorial. You make it so easy to do. It will be a great gift for my nephews. They are into Legos right now.
I think I would use Black for the connecting color, so I could make the gray blocks white...more true to lego colors...LOVE THIS!!!
this is so cool, my grandsons will love it, my daughter had me take a look at it and I fell in love with it. have to make it fit a twin bed thought. looks like loads of fun. thank you, Londa Bear McBride
Thanks so much for sharing this! I love it! I'm going to make a John Deer green and yellow Lego pillow for my room :-) I find it rather funny that everyone is making these for little boys, lol. I'm a girl and I LOVE Lego's! I have many memories of playing with them with my cousins and sister when I was younger. Thanks again for sharing!
Thanks so much for such an awesome tutorial, not only am I working on this Lego blanket but it helped me figure out a stitch on a different pattern :PMy daughter, now 22, is still Lego obsessed and wants a blanket. Any suggestions on a potential finished size for an adult blanket or quantity of blocks to make in each color? Any help would be appreciated.
You're welcome! Just to let you know on size, the baby blanket pictured above is about 2 X 3 feet. I used 9 skeins of yarn, and there are 64 blocks. So to do an adult size blanket would be A TON of blocks. I haven't attempted this yet because it would take forever, so good luck if you do!
So the tutorial is available to purchase? Even with all your awesome photographs? Because you taught me to single crochet and double crochet more than any other book has.
Hello. Just wanted to share my finished project using your pattern. Found your pattern via pinterest before it went on Etsy. It is for our grandson to be. Thanks so much for sharing your talent! We love this pattern!!!! http://morningstaracademy2.blogspot.com/ There are two post leading back to you about the pattern.
Looks great! I'm glad you liked the pattern and thanks for linking back to me.
