15 Picture Book Ideas to Pair with a Blanket

I love children’s books as much as I love to crochet. In fact, pairing a picture book with a blanket is one of my favorite gift ideas.

I’m not alone in this either! Members in the Daisy Farm Crafters Facebook Group also have shared blankets they crocheted and then paired with a book.

I thought I would gather some of your creations with some of my own in a round-up post, so the next time you are looking for some inspiration for a gift you will have a place to come for ideas.
