Aww, who doesn’t love to make a cute little lovey blanket for a sweet baby? Rose designed this gorgeous little North Star Baby Lovey Blanket for a new niece coming her way soon. She wanted to make something to give to her sister after she heard the news of the new baby coming, so she designed this one skein crochet lovey to share.
This is a great lovey for baby because it has five great points for baby to chew on! It is super soft and easy to throw in the wash to clean. Since it works up with one skein and very quickly, you could make a few of these so the parents always have one on hand.
This free crochet pattern uses the magic ring to start and then is worked in the round. It creates a beautiful star shape that looks stylish and will match at modern baby decor and outfits.
