The Crochet Lovey is a smaller project that is intended to give children a sense of comfort.
Crochet Lovies can be smaller blankets that replicate the larger version. Why?
For those who travel, taking the full-size baby blanket may give comfort to the young person, but may be inconvenient. A smaller version can be a duplicate but not as big, of course. It's almost like when you adopt a pet and they give you a small towel that was in the cage or home of the original owner to give the pet a sense of stability.
Below are crochet lovey patterns. Confirmed to be free patterns.
Baby Raccoon Lovey
The Crochet Baby Raccoon Lovey is made up of 1 head and two arms.
The Blanket is created first and then the additional head and arms are added to the blanket afterwards.
Crochet Baby Blanket and Teddy Bear
The Crochet Baby Blanket and Teddy Bear are a pair of patterns that go together.
The bear is not attached to the blanket but matches the look and feel. Leave the blanket behind and grab the bear to take with the child.
Crochet Bunny Lovey
The Crochet Bunny Lovey is a cute little baby lovey.
The blanket is created first and then the head is added on afterwards. Friendly subtle colours.
Crochet Elephant Lovey
The Crochet Elephant Lovey is a wave lovey with an elephant head.
This lovey is a nice small sample with a friendly elephant to add to the blanket.
Crochet Yoda Lovey
The Crochet Yoda Lovey is created by Creative Play Crochet. For those who are lovers of Star Wars, this may be up your alley for interest.
Yoda tends to be loved and friendly.
Crochet Patch Cow Lovey
The Crochet Patch Cow Lovey is created by Osage Country Crochet.
A moo-cow is a great little friend for a young person. Great shaping of the head and details in this example.

I really love the look of this miniature example. Reminds me of a friendly cartoon version waiting to be someone's friend.
Crochet Baby Penguin Lovey
The Crochet Baby Penquin Lovey is designed by One Dog Woof.
Reminds me of Happy Feet. I've always been intrigued by Penguins. I would sew the scarf down to the full distance of the blanket so it's not a dangling choking hazzard.
