Secondly, if you are not a fan of crochet amigurumi, this is the perfect project for you. You do not need to make the whole toy! All you need is the head and maybe a couple of legs.

As the blanket replaces the rest of the body, there is no tricky sewing together all the different parts of an amigurumi toy.

and finally, just imagine the look on the new parents’ faces when you gift something so special for their new arrival. Better yet, the widest smile on a little face of a toddler as they recognise their favorite animal.

One they can definitely cuddle up to as it has a soft and squidgy body!

Loveys are actually very easy to make. They are usually a tiny blanket that is 10-20 inches across. Loveys can be circles, rectangles, squares, and even hexagons. In fact, they can be anything you want them to be.

I have chosen crochet lovey patterns that are easy and quick to make. You can choose from different animals.

These are all popular animals amongst kids and babies. You can also make a plain lovey that is just a small blanket to cuddle up to.

All these patterns are suitable for boys and girls alike. However, the airplane crochet lovey would be just perfect for a little pilot to be.
