What makes tacos so great? Perhaps this way we can stuff them with a variety of meats, cheeses and toppings to create our own perfect meal. Or maybe it’s the way a hard or soft taco shell wraps around all that deliciousness that makes tacos a premium comfort food.
But we found a taco that literally redefines comfort food. As? Imagine having a taco so big and inviting it practically begs you to wrap yourself in it. Yes, we’re talking about a taco blanket, and if you crochet, you can now make your own thanks to a clever Etsy creator.
We’ve heard of wrapping ourselves in blankets like a burrito, but this taco might serve our snuggling needs even better.
Raechel Mayfield, Etsy shop owner Raechel Mayfield of CraftyMomandDad designed this blanket pattern for those of us who can’t limit our taco love to just the kitchen. The Taco Blanket Pattern creates an item that is 88 inches long and 46 inches wide. That’s a taco big enough to fill with a full grown adult! But of course, your taco-mad kids will love it, too.
The no-guilt taco topping is the ultimate deluxe taco. You’ve got your taco meat, cheese, lettuce, and even sour cream, all in a traditional yellow corn husk. What more could you want from a taco to wrap yourself in?
Mayfield designed this crochet taco blanket for beginners. Even if you are new to crocheting, you can complete this project. Basic stitches, including the slip stitch, half double crochet, and post stitch, make up the pattern. Even in the pattern listing, Mayfield provides plenty of hints and tips to make this blanket a manageable project for newer sewers.
For only $5.50 you get the complete, instant digital download pattern that you can access from your computer, tablet, or even a smartphone. For now, Mayfield only lists the large size pattern, but said she plans to release more sizes soon.
You can also find similar patterns from Etsy sellers like The WIP Window, who offer a Taco Supreme crochet blanket pattern for babies and toddlers. If you’re looking for a pillow to match your blanket, check out MyFingersFly’s Crochet Pattern Taco Pillow.
