I will let Nora Bellows tell you about her creation here:
"Springtime calls to mind new growth, renewal . . . new baby lambs and bunnies. I designed these hoodie blankets and towels with little animals and little folks in mind. The blankets are perfect for bundling up wee ones on the cool days of Spring, for wrapping up new babies, or as cuddly bassinette blankets. Your toddler might like to wear the larger size blanket for nap time or play time. Make in cotton or cotton blend for a wonderful hoodie towel. My little guy likes to run around after bath time pretending to be a frolicking lamb.
"Included in this pattern are instructions for a cotton hoodie towel or snuggly hooded blanket with bunny ears & bunny paws and a little lamb with lamb ears & hooved lamb's dainty feet. The blankets and towels are square so little legs don't stick out the bottom and get cold. Bunny and Lamb face and feet make these towels and blankets extra fun for bath time, play time, or sleepy time."
Pattern Difficulty -- this is rated for an intrepid beginner. Requires knitting, purling, working in the round on circular and double-pointed needles, some simple embroidery.
Gauge is 16 sts and 24 rows over 4"/10 cm using a single-strand of worsted-weight cotton or snuggly yarn on a US 9/5.5 mm needle in St st.
Seems to me, too, that making them in wool could be a wonderful option for an outdoor cape.
Small towel/blanket: 730 yds/667 m of worsted-weight yarn
Large towel/blanket: 1,210 yds/1,106 m of worsted-weight yarn
The two samples on the front cover were made using Plymouth Earth's Rainshadow, (98% Baby Alpaca, 2% Rayon), 88 yds/80 m in color 1.
This makes me want to be a kit again.
