My popular Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie pattern has brought requests for MORE animals. MORE Mini Lovey Blankie Menagerie pattern brings you 6 new animals and 6 new blanket border designs to choose from. 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.
PATTERN CORRECTIONS: On page 16 (Mouse Blankie), the stitch count for Row 13 should read 192 sts (48 sts per section) And Row 16 should read [(K10, yo, k2tog) x 3, k10, slip marker] x 4
