Crochet Modern Baby Lovey Pattern

I came up with this Crochet Modern Lovey Pattern to match my Modern Baby Granny Blanket with the extra yarn that was left over.  I think babies need a blankie that is small enough for them to hold and cuddle.

I used smaller blocks than the original to downsize the pattern.  I wanted to show the versitility of this design.  The simple join-as-you-go method with have you hooked on this style.  For this design, I used Bernat Super Value yarn in Magenta, Yellow, Soft Grey, White and Baby Pink.  But this would be super to use up your scrap yarns too!

I am excited to be part of The Crochet Crowd team. I have been crocheting for 40+ years. I am also a big geek and an internet addict. I met Mikey and Diva Dan while onboard a crochet cruise in March 2015, and the rest is history. I hope to help inspire fellow crocheters.
