Amir loves hugs and cuddles. He’s super soft and sports a beautiful blanket designed and made by my daughter, Vada. Vada also came up with the idea to make an elephant for the Softie CAL. Amir would make a great gift! I have included details on making the blanket with a Cricut, along with how to make a fabric inner lining if you are concerned about stuffing poking through.
Amir was named after an awesome technician who was in my house when I was trying to figure out this pattern. I would crochet a while, hold it up and say “That doesn’t look right!” Amir would pause from his work, look at it, give me a suggestion, and then keep going. Eventually my crochet looked like an elephant, thanks to the extra eyes I had that day!
