Image of Felted Baby Blocks
A neat twist on the crochet baby block, these toys are made by crocheting squares, felting them, and then seaming them together.

Felted Baby Blocks

Lion Brand« Martha Stewart CraftsTM/MC Roving Wool

GAUGE:

8 1/2 sc + 8 1/2 rows = 4 in. (10 cm), before felting.

STITCH EXPLANATION:

Blanket Stitch
Working from left to right, bring large-eyed blunt needle from back to front approximately 1/2 in. (1.5 cm) from edge of work. Bring needle around and insert from front to back through loop of yarn to form a 'corner'.

SQUARES (make 18 - 3 each with A, B, C, D, and 6 with E)
Ch 18.
Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in each ch across - 17 sc.
Rows 2-16: Ch 1, turn, sc in each st across.
Fasten off. Weave in ends.

FELTING
Wash squares by machine on a hot wash/cold rinse cycle with detergent and several pieces of clothing to agitate. Remove from washing machine and pull each piece into shape. Allow to dry.

FINISHING
Group the squares into 3 sets of 6 squares each. Each set of 6 squares will make one block. Each Block uses one A, B, C, and D Square and 2 E Squares.
Assembly
Hand felting
Blanket st will be easier to work with yarn that has been slightly felted. Cut E into 24 in. (61 cm) lengths. Lay a towel onto a flat surface near a sink. Turn on water to very warm. Apply a small amount of liquid hand soap to your hands. Working with one yarn length at time, rub the yarn between your hands (as if briskly washing your hands). Rinse the yarn, then lay onto towel-covered surface to dry.

With felted lengths of E, blanket st the A, B, C, and D Squares together into a strip. Join the ends of the strip with blanket st to make a loop. Blanket st an E Square to one open end of the loop. Stuff piece, then blanket st the second E Square to close the Block. Repeat to make 2 more Blocks. Weave in ends.
