It took me a while, but I am finally finished with my humpback whale plush toy and baby blanket! This is the second set, to go with the matching orca blanket and plush for my little twin girls. Here is a picture of the plush and blanket together. 🙂
I am pretty happy with how it turned out! The reason that it took me so long, is that I couldn’t decide how to create the plush toy. I started working in the round, but then didn’t want to just sew white patches on. Tried working with changing color each round, but it started to get complicated and not line up correctly. Consequently, I ended up with a combination of working in the round and then rows. The white part is sewn to the charcoal grey, but not on top. The pieces are created as two seperate parts and sewn together. You can get the pattern for the plush toy here.
The blanket is very similar to my orca one, since I wanted it to match, for my twin girls. I am not going to relist and link to all the information about creating a C2C (corner to corner) graphgan again, but you can see it all in my orca blanket post here. The materials and graph are listed below.

Basics of creating a corner to corner graphgan, in my orca blanket post.
Size: Mine ended up in a baby blanket size – approx 29″ long and 21.5″ wide.
Gauge: Gauge is not essential, but if you would like the blanket to turn out the same size as mine, I recommend matching my gauge. You will need to create a square to measure.
With worsted weight yarn and ‘H’ hook: 6 squares by 6 squares is equal to 4″ X 4″ piece.
Instead of coloring in some graph paper, like I did last time, I tried a computer version. Let me know what you think! I would love to see how your blanket turns out!
