Kid Road Map: The Adventure Ends

I’ve OFFICIALLY  completed the kid road map I had been working on (a CAL brought to us by HappyBerry)! I must say that it was a fun and delightful adventure, with the exception of a few bumps on the road. Ha ha! But, where would the adventure be if the bumps weren’t waiting for us?

I must say that if you have Little Ones, this is the best toy for them. Mine are eager to have one made especially for them! (This kid road map is a special gift for a special Little One. 🙂 ) Not is it super soft to touch, and the textures are endless, but it encourages their little imaginations to run wild!

Yes, my piggie, car, and sail boat are exaggerated in size, but I did so intentionally so they could be handled easier by the recipient of this super cute gift. 

I hope to see YOUR version of HappyBerry’s kid road map soon! Feel free to post yours in the comment section below. 🙂

Happy crocheting, y’all!

Kid Road Map: An Exciting Adventure Awaits!

Howdy! I MUST tell you all about my current W.I.P. (work in progress)…

It’s a kids road map that is absolutely super-awesome, fun-filled, and has endless-imaginative possibilities! There are hay bales, a freshly plugged field, long, lush, green grass, and a turning road that can go on for miles upon miles. (Not to mention there’s LOTS more to add to the map than what I just typed!)

I got the pattern from the one and only HappyBerry (click on her name to be taken to the first episode of this crochet-a-long(CAL)). The woman is a true genius, and extremely talented! Hats off to her!

While the road map is indeed a blanket-sized map (I believe she said it’ll be 4’x5′ when completed), I have chosen to downsize mine to 3 squares by 4 squares. Each square is 4″x4″, and the yarn she recommends is DK (AKA:  baby sport, or 3-ply) yarn. I’ve used both DK and worsted weight yarn (4-ply) for my map; I simply adjusted the hook size to match my gauge.

My next two squares will be the pond with the round-top trees. I seriously don’t want to sleep tonight so I can finish working on it! It’s THAT addicting! Ha ha!

Don’t worry. I’ll keep you guys updated on my road map. But, until then, I wish you all a happy and safe weekend. 🙂
