What Size Should Your Lovey Be?
Your lovey should be between 15 in to 20 in. The smaller the baby the smaller I would make the blankie.
What is a Lovey Crochet?
A lovey crochet is a small blanket usually made as a animal with a 3D head attached to the center of a small approx. 20 in blanket.
They are the perfect size for a baby to hug. You want to remind to use only thread for the eyes and details making sure to attach each part of the lovey securely.
Some loveys are made as an animal without the stuffing in the body. The head, arms, and legs are stuffed but the body is flat.
