Animal blankets are a perennial favorite with kids of all ages. This pattern is a particularly good example, because it comes with instructions how to crochet numerous animal appliques for the squares and detailed directions for the overall project. It is a lovely, thick blanket that will serve equally well as play rug, a bassinet blanket or a bed throw, because of its drapiness. This is a wonderful project. A link to the free pattern is at the end of the post.
