Pattern Description:

This Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie, with their darling little faces, will capture the hearts of little ones. There are 6 animals to choose from: bear, monkey, lamb, elephant, bunny, and of course, piggy in a blanket. A choice of 2 blanket easy stitch patterns, with each blanket only 12" square, makes them easy grab 'n' go loveys that can fit just about anywhere. Using regular #4 worsted wt. yarn, they're quick knits and take little yarn (110 yds. for blanket, approx. 70-90 yds. for animal), so they're great stash-busters, as well. A round collar design over joined arms makes it simple to attach the animal securely to the blanket. Make one for someone you love! Great for gifts and craft tables!
