Checkerboard Game Blanket
I found this pattern online (click HERE for the free pattern) and made it for my grandchildren and for a friend's daughter's birthday. Big hits on both fronts!
The board is about 30x30" and can be used as a game board and can double as a small cover on a child's bed. It is great for snuggling on the couch while watching TV. I used an "H" size hook and soft baby yarn.
The drawstring bag was a "made it up as I go" pattern, meaning I just started crocheting a bag and if I have to make another one, I'll wing that one, too!
The checkers are super simple. They work great as projects to do while traveling in the car. Tip: Make the bag first then you have something to store the completed checkers in as you make them!
