Lovie Security Blanket – Free Crochet Pattern
SECURITY BLANKET / LOVEY
FREE CROCHET PATTERN
This can be made in any yarn. Just use the hook size recommended for it. I used a super soft bulky yarn. Not the greatest for a newborn/infant. It was a little heavy. Now that she’s a year old it’s perfect. You can easily adjust the size by adding an even number of stitches.
The stitch I used has been called the “seed stitch” or the “moss stitch”.
Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across, turn.
Row 2: ch1, sc in 1st sc, *ch1, skip next sc, sc in next sc, repeat from * across, turn.
Row 3: ch1, skip 1st sc, sc in ch1 space, *ch1, skip next sc, sc in next ch1 space, turn.
Repeat Row 3 until approx. 26”, do not fasten off.
