Tiger Security Blanket Free Crochet Pattern

Updated: Aug 9



Let The World Hear Your Roar!!!


A new adorable Tiger has just been added to my crochet Security Blanket Collection!

Isn't it just adorable?!? I love all the little details of its cute face...especially the side hair made with the softest fur yarn.


The bobble stitch pattern of the mini blanket add a nice and interesting texture that can stimulate your baby's sensory development, while the softness of the yarn make this cute blanket a perfect self-soothing tool.
