This blanket was inspired by Sanrio’s Hello Kitty and was a request by one of my nieces. If I am totally honest I would never have attempted a Hello Kitty if it was not for my niece 😛
After a lot of research, attempted patterns I got from the web, chart reading, translating languages I did not even know existed, I managed to come up with a pattern of my own for the Hello Kitty face. It is with no doubt similar to what can be found elsewhere. However it’s been modified so that it is easy to understand for me, and quick and easy to make. And most importantly, the face comes out exactly the same each time I make it.
Basic stitches, simple shaping and finishing. Concentration required for neat finishing.
