Spiderman Inspired Free Crochet Blanket

How about crocheting this amazing Spiderman inspired blanket.

Free Crochet Blanket Pattern | BIG Boys Crochet Blanket

This crochet blanket is so Easy to make and is perfect for those wanting extra warmth but without the weight and bulkiness of many blankets out there, MY Uncle, who is disabled, and finds himself needing a little extra layer of warmth at nights sitting watching the TV, asked me to crochet him a blanket, one that he could handle himself as many of the shop bought blankets were very heavy to handle. He wanted it light weight but needed to be warm and cosy.

Crochet Baby Boy Cardigan pattern with hood (Easy Hooded Crochet Cardigan Pattern FREE) 3 sizes

Easy FREE Crochet Cardigan with hood perfect crochet sweater for baby boys.  3- 6 months, 12, months  (use a 4.00mm hook) and 18  months. (use a 5.00mm hook)  

Suggested Yarn Weight: 41/2 (4 3/4, 5) Ounces

This is brilliant. Such an enjoyable crochet project. I love simplicity of this crochet pattern.   BUT please NOTE: this is not a beginners pattern,  .  I would like to think if you have mastered simple pieces increasing and decreasing, you will find this a very easy project.  It is made in basic shaped pieces and then sewn together.
You should have experience in shaping for pieces front and back and neck edges. I have already answered many questions in the comments section please read through the WHOLE pattern before commencing.

This can be made for a boy or a girl, but really the pattern gives it a really cosy texture and my niece loves her son wearing this hooded cardigan whilst out and about.

Sew Hood seam down the back. Sew Hood along neck from edge to edge.(you will find the hood is bigger when laid out than the actual neck line (along back, down shoulder, and along front)
Make sure you find back centre
of neck edge and sew the hood into place, sometimes 2 stitches  of the neck edge to the 1 stitch of the hood, this gives a bulk shaping to the back of the hood for fitting head shape. )
