Cozy Up In This Crochet Taco Blanket

What makes tacos so great? Perhaps this way we can fill them with a variety of meat, cheese, and toppings to create our own perfect meal. Or maybe it’s the way a hard or soft taco shell envelops all that delicacy that makes tacos a top notch comfort food.

But we’ve found a taco that literally redefines home cooking. As? Imagine having a taco that is so big and inviting that you are practically asked to wrap yourself in it. Yes, we’re talking about a taco blanket, and if you are crocheting, now is the time to make your own – thanks to a clever Etsy creator.

We’ve heard about wrapping ourselves in blankets like a burrito, but this taco could do even better with our cuddling needs.

Etsy shop owner Raechel Mayfield of CraftyMomandDad created this ceiling pattern for those of us who can’t just hold back our taco love in the kitchen. The Taco Blanket Pattern creates an item that measures 88 inches long by 46 inches wide. That’s a taco big enough to fill with a full-size adult! But your taco-crazy kids will love it too, of course.

The guilt-free taco blanket is the ultimate deluxe taco. You have your taco meat, cheese, lettuce, and even sour cream in a traditional yellow corn bowl. What more could you want in a taco to wrap yourself up in?

Mayfield designed this crochet taco blanket for beginners. So even if you are new to crocheting, this project can be completed. Single stitches, including slip stitches, half double crochets, and post stitch, make up the pattern. Even in the sample list, Mayfield gives plenty of pointers and tips to make this blanket a manageable project for newer sewers.

For just $ 5.50, you can get the full, instant digital download sample accessible from your computer, tablet, or even a smartphone. Currently, Mayfield only lists the large pattern, but said she plans to release more sizes soon.

You can also find similar patterns from Etsy sellers such as The WIP Window, which has a Taco Supreme crochet blanket pattern for babies and young children. If you’re looking for a pillow that will go with your blanket, check out the Taco Pillow crochet pattern from MyFingersFly.
