Free Lovey Crochet Pattern
This lovey crochet pattern can be made with any yarn. Just use the hook size recommended for it. I used a super soft bulky yarn. Bulky yarn may be a little heavy for a newborn/infant, but it was perfect for my daughter at 1 year old. You can easily adjust the size by adding an even number of stitches.
This lovie pattern uses the moss stitch (also known as the seed stitch). If you’d like help or a tutorial for this stitch, please visit my Stitch Guide for the tutorial.
