Ocean Waves Blanket

So I normally don't make blankets for people.  They're beautiful and I love making them, but they just take SO LONG to make!  But when a close friend makes a special request, I will of course make it!  This is to be a gift for a friend's cousin's wedding.  They own a boat called 'Hoot' so we wanted to come up with something that was water-related and also incorporated the boat name.  Here are some photos and details on this beautiful blanket's construction!

Owl Appliqué - FREE Crochet Pattern!

I was making a blanket for a friend and it included adding a pair of owls onto it.  Using the same colors as the blanket, I made these appliqués and had to choose amongst them for the blanket.  I figured I could share the pattern for these!  There's actually a pattern for 2 different ones, a bigger one made with single crochet and a smaller, simpler one made with double crochet.
