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!
Gauge is not critical for this project. Work
tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
