Poop Emoji Blanket

Ah, the poop emoji.  I personally have never understood the attraction, but people love it!  Especially the little ones, which is what inspired me to make this blanket.

This is a pixel afghan made up of 195 individual squares, then slip stitched along the back edges.  This blanket is a hybrid pattern of this C2C poop emoji pattern and this Cupcake Pixel Blanket both by Sarah at RepeatCrafterMe.

I started this blanket as a little travelling project that I could take around with me, doing a few squares here and there.  I recently went on a trip down south and thought it would be the perfect project to get done while I’m down there.  So by the time I got home, I had all my little squares packed up in my suitcase ready to be blocked and put together!

I enjoy making projects that involve a lot of little things getting sewn together (see my Hexagon Blanket).  But those ends! Word to the wise: weave as you go! This is preference of course, but I always regret it when I don’t do it.  For the border, I just did a simple SC stitch around; 3 rows in Melon, 1 row in Lush and 1 row in Coffee.  I think it really gave it a nice finish. 🙂

This pattern is very easy to follow and the little squares are so cute! You could do it with any graph picture you like. I used this website to make my graph, which I also used for my Sugar Skull Lapghan.

Check out that and other blankets I’ve made here. Thanks for stopping by! 🙂
