Blanket

Interchangeable Lovey Blanket by Alanna O’Dea

December 16th, 2019

Pin it now, make later!

This week I am welcoming Alanna O’Dea from @theodoreandrose to the blog with her Bear and Bunny Lovey Blanket Patterns.  These adorable patterns make the perfect beginners project for any budding Amigurumi crocheters.

“As this is a guest post, Bella Coco Crochet is unable to answer any queries. If you have a question, please contact the designer directly and they will be happy to help you.”

Materials and Tools needed

Yarn: The example bunny and bear loveys were made using Heirloom Cotton 8 ply (120m/50g) in the following colours:

Yarn used for bear lovey – Oat (6630) and Parchment (6617) approx 100g (per comforter)

Yarn used for bunny lovey – Glacier (6619) and Snow (6607) approx 110g (per comforter)

Pink yarn for cheeks.  Only small amounts of yarn is required for the cheeks so leftover yarn can be used.

Black embroidery thread for eyes and nose.

Hook: 2.25mm (US B/1) and 4mm (US G/6)

Toy stuffing approx 35-40g

Stitch marker

Scissors

Tapestry needle for sewing

Notes and gauge

Blanket gauge: 19 stitches and 9 rows in a treble crochet  = 10cm x 10cm

Amigurumi gauge : 5 rounds = 3.7cm across (Note: crochet the first 5 rounds of the head pattern to use as a gauge swatch).

Finished size: The finished blanket is approx 33cm x 33cm; the head is approx 22cm in diameter.

Notes

When working amigurumi parts (head and ears), work in continuous spirals, without closing off the rounds with a slip stitch.

Use a stitch marker at the beginning of each round. This helps when counting your stitches to compare it with the pattern.

Stuff the head firmly. Insert small amounts at a time until you get the right shape.  Stuffing your toy can be tricky, but it is a very important step in getting the right shape and look for your toy: overstuffing might stretch the fabric too far and show gaps and under stuffing will give your piece a deflated look.  Take your time with this step.

To help you when sewing pieces together, first pin them into place and check that you are happy with the positioning.

Note: I have chosen to use an X stitch for the amigurumi parts (head and ears), which gives a tighter, neater finish.  The standard V stitch can be used, however if used it will result in a slightly larger head size.

The next 3 rounds (Rnd 12-14) will make up the alpine stitch border using fptr and tr crochet stitches.

Rnd 12: sl-st into ch 2 sp, ch4, work 2 tr into same sp.  [ * Work a fptr around first tr post, into next st work 1 tr *  Repeat *…* all the way along until you reach the next ch 2 sp (you should finish with a tr).  Into ch 2 sp work (2 tr, 1 dtr, 2 tr) ] Repeat […] 3 more times.

Break the yarn and pull through.  Weave in all yarn tails.

Embroidery Work

Embroider the eyes, nose and eyebrows on to the head with black thread.  I placed the eyes and the top of the nose between rounds 16 and 17 with 9 stitches between the eyes.  Use pink yarn to add little pink cheeks under the eyes.

Embroidery Work

Embroidery Work

TIP: Bring the yarn up from the base of the head and return thread to the base when finished.  Here you now can easily secure the yarn tails and the blanket will hide it all later for a professionally neat finish.

Construction

If making the bunny, pinch the base of the ears together and secure with a few stitches.  Sew the ears to the top of the head between rounds 5 and 6 on either side.  For the bear, sew the ears to the top of the head between rounds 6-10 on either side.

Construction Step 1

Construction Step 1

If making the bunny, pinch the base of the ears together and secure with a few stitches.  Sew the ears to the top of the head between rounds 5 and 6 on either side.  For the bear, sew the ears to the top of the head between rounds 6-10 on either side.

Lay the blanket flat and position the head on the blanket with the face centered on a diagonal with the blanket seam (starting point of each round) at the back.  (Step 1).  Carefully pin into position, turn your work over and using the long yarn tail from the head, sew an ‘X’, being sure to pass through both the blanket and the head together.  (Step 2)

Construction Step 2

Construction Step 2

Next, turn your work again to begin sewing the blanket to the head from the right side.  Use BLO round (Rnd 24) as a guide, picking up a stitch just above this round as shown in Step 3.  When you have made your way all around the head, secure and weave in the yarn tail.

Construction Step 3

Construction Step 3

Position the arms and sew securely to the blanket.

Congratulations!!!  Your sleepy baby lovey is finished.  I hope you enjoyed making them as much as I enjoyed creating them for you

“The inspiration behind this pattern was a combination of the stunning neutral palette of the Heirloom Cotton 8 I had in my yarn stash, as well as the fact that my boys both adored their little loveys as babies.  They went with us everywhere – the car, the pram, the shops…Grandma and Grandad’s house – EVERYWHERE!!  So, I wanted to create something that was just as adorable, safe for babies and toddlers to sleep with, durable and easy to care for, and specifically with a beginner crocheter in mind.”  Alanna

    Hi, I’m really struggling with the arms on this pattern! The rounds 4 to 22 don’t grow as a cylinder but rather as an expanding cone shape. Have you any tips? Should there be an increase chain stitch?

      Hi! I’m working on this project now. It should be one continuous spiral, with no slip stitches to join. Make sure that there are 12 stitches per round with no increases after round 3. Mine is looking great so far!

    How do I contact Alanna? I was almost finished with the head and couldn’t figure out why it was so long? The pattern says DC ( double crochet) but the description of the DC is actually a single crochet. I’m confused. I tried the single crochet and it doesn’t look right either. Is it supposed to be a half double crochet stitch for the head? Please help.

      Hi Kim

      I have contacted Alanna on your behalf and here is her reply :-

      The pattern is written using UK terms i.e. a UK double crochet is equivalent to a US single crochet.

      Hope this helps 🙂

    I started with the head but it’s coming out cone shaped? I’ve made many heads before but for some reason, the top portion is more of a cone than a nice round ball. Not sure what I’m doing wrong?

    Hello! I have found your channel on youtube while pregnant and isolated from my family due to COVID (i’m in the US). You do such a great job, learning to crochet has kept me sane. I am beginner and have used your videos to make hat, booties, and bassinet blanket. I can follow along nicely on a video. However, reading I get overwhelmed with the directions. Also things like X stitch in the notes ect. Any chance could request a video of this sweet lovey? Thanks so much for considering!!

          I know it’s been a year but I’m from Spain and I had to substitute the yarn. I used DMC 100% Baby Cotton but you just have to find some DK weight baby cotton or 100% cotton, I recommend a 3-4 mm needle size yarn. I used the DMC one and a 2.5 mm and a 4 mm hook and it turned out exactly the same as in the picture.

    Round 15 of blanket, after ch 2 it reads dc same space (its beginning corner), but all other corners are 2dc, htr, 2dc and once back to beg, 2dc then join. My question is will that corner only have dc, htr, 2dc or should it be 2dc after ch 2 (in same st) to make all corner stitches the same?

    Direct but havent had a reply (probably due to the holidays). I’m hoping someone can help or at least least me know how to contact the designer directly. Here’s what I sent her…
    This is the first time I’ve tried a pattern like this and the stitch count doesn’t match the pattern after I’ve done a dc dec row. I’m wondering if it’s to do with how I’m reading the instructions in the brackets. Do I repeat only what’s in the brackets or all instructions up to and including the brackets?

    Hello, how can I contact Anna? I was crocheting the blanket and I got to the 12th round but I do not really understand how to do that and I cannot keep crocheting.

    Thank you for your response,

    Edina 🙂

    Hey, I am making this for a family member who is expecting a baby soon, but I am confused on rounds 5-11 on the blanket. Do you mean that on each side I add 4 stitches, or add one stitch per side on each round. It would be really great if you replied. Thank you 🙂

        Mine is also has a wave in it. I have pulled it out 3 times and am still struggling on the 4th. Did you reach out to the original poster and receive any tips? Please share if you do!

      Hi Brooklynn,
      I’m at that part now too … I found that with the multiple corner stitches, it automatically increases the side stitch count, without needing to do any other increase stitches

    Hi, do we have to use the blanket pattern included or can we use a simpler pattern? I’m a beginner and do not know how to do that bit yet

    FABULOUS! Just finished this little project and it looks so so cute. It was very easy to make thanks to the really detailed descriptions. It must have been 20 years since I have done any crochet work but with all the detailed descriptions it all came back to me. Thank you so so much!

    Hi ,

    Thanks for the pattern. My stitches from 12-15 have a wave to it. What did I do wrong? The front post crochet isn’t falling straight but folding at the edges. Thank you.

      You’re welcome When making front post stitches it’s important to raise our hook back up to the full height of our work after making the first yarn over. If we don’t do this it can shorten our stitch and cause our work to curl and fold. I would try again and make sure to raise the tip of your hook so you have plenty of height to your stitches.

    Made a bear and a bunny for my little girl to have while she is in the NICU for an extended time. Wish I could post a pic, they’re as big as she is! All the nurses love her little forest friends. Thank you for this pattern ❤️
