For Yiayia’s Boy

The 2020 For Yiayia’s Boy Lafghan Crochet Pattern


Greek term for Grandmother, pronounced ya-ya.

A dear friend of mine welcomed her very first Grandbaby this year and of course, we had to have a special blankie for a special little boy…….and so, Yiayia’s Boy was born. The centre design is very much inspired by Moroccan tiles which just tickle my fancy cos they are sooooo awesome.
I’ve kept the stitchwork nice and masculine so this blanket is perfectly suited to that special man or little boy in your life. Worked in the right colours, it would be just as fabulous for a more girly blanket. The pattern is worked as a repeat blanket, making it super easy to size to whatever your little heart desires or that special human in your life needs.
