Barry The Bear Baby Lovey Crochet Pattern

July 18, 2019
Barry The Bear Baby Lovey is created to match the 3in1 Wodland Bear Baby Blanket and together will do a great baby shower present for boys and girls alike.



THIS YEAR I DECIDED TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY AND SO ALL MY PATTERNS WILL BE FREE FOR THE FIRST 3 DAYS FROM RELEASE

THIS PATTERN IS NOT FREE ANYMORE, BUT YOU CAN FOLLOW MY BLOG AND FACEBOOK PAGE TO BE NOTIFIED WHEN OTHER PATTERNS GO LIVE AND YOU WON'T MISS OUT AGAIN

FIND THE INEXPENSIVE PATTERN IN MY ETSY STORE and RAVELRY STORE

I used the one row gingham pattern to create a smaller pattern that matches the 3in1 bear baby blanket.



The blanket is suitable for girls or boys alike, it is crocheted in neutral colors, but you can customise it by choosing your own color palette.

Made with double knit (light worsted) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft, but light in weight, perfect for babies of all sizes and ages.

SPECIAL STITCHES


First Double Crochet In The Row (dc1) – Sc in the first stitch, ch2. 

Compared to the usual method of crocheting a double crochet in the first stitch of a row (ch3), this method of constructing it will eliminate the gap that usually occurs between the first two stitches and will help bring the yarn that is not in use over to the following row.




SUPPLIES USED: 

Marriner Yarns double knit (light worsted) yarn


- 1 x 100g ball in dark brown (chocolate)

- 1 x 100g ball in brown (mink)


- 1 x 100g ball in cream (oat)

Marriner Yarns is only found in the UK, so for my international readers, I can recommend a similar yarn, Red Heart Yarn , which comes is a multitude of colours and weights, just as affordable and easy to work with as Marriner Yarns.

- 4mm crochet hook

- 9mm safety doll eyes

- tapestry needle


- scissors, stitch markers and pins to pin the parts in place before sewing


I get most of my crochet supplies from Amazon, it's fast and easy and I find everything I need in one place.
