My popular Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie pattern has brought requests for MORE animals. This new mini blankie pattern is one of 6 new animals included in my pattern collection: MORE Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie. And since I've received so many requests to design them knit in-the-round, they're now even quicker to make. Even the mini blanket (12-13" square) is knit in-the-round, so there are lovely even borders all around. The 2 arms are made in all one piece, making them simple and quick, too. They take little yarn, so they're great stash-busters and wonderful craft table items. Definitely make adorable gifts! Whether you choose a lion, puppy, zebra, hippo, mouse or cow, these darling mini blankies are easy grab 'n' go loveys that can fit just about anywhere. The whole collection, MORE Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie, can be purchased for $6.00 here: http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/knitting/toy/more-mini-lovey-blankie-menagerie/101196
Gauge is not critical for this project. Work tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
