Crochet Bunny Lovey – Free Pattern

Crochet Bunny Lovey - Free Pattern by The Stitchin' Mommy www.thestitchinmommy.com #crochet #bunny #Easter #lovey #baby #blanket

Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been working on a few new items for my shop and also trying to de-stash some of my yarn. I’ve been able to donate a ton of yarn that I felt that I wouldn’t use to two charities that are really in need of yarn. I’ve been crocheting up a storm and I’ve been writing everything down but now I finally have a chance to post one of the projects I’ve been working on…this adorable bunny lovey. The pattern is very simple:

For the blanket, I used a basic granny square pattern.

With Color B,

Magic Circle, ch 3 (This counts as your first dc)

Round 1: 2 dc into the circle. *ch 1, 3 dc into the circle** Repeat from * to ** two more times. Ch 1, join in the top of the ch 3. Sl st in the next 2 sts until you reach the next ch-1 space.
Round 2: Ch 3. (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the ch-1 sp. *Ch 1, sk the 3 dc. (3 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the next ch-1 sp.** Repeat from * to ** two more times. Ch 1, join in the top of the ch 3.  Sl st in the next 2 sts until you reach the next ch-1 space.
Round 3: Ch 3. (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the ch-1 sp. *Ch 1, sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc into the next ch-1 sp, ch 1, (3dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the next ch-1 sp (corner)** Repeat from * to ** two more times. Ch 1, join in the top of the ch 3.

Change to Color A by fastening off color B and joining Color A in one of the corner ch-1 spaces.

Round 4:  Ch 3. (2 dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the ch-1 sp. *Ch 1, sk the next 3 dc, 3 dc into the next ch-1 sp, ch 1, skip over next 3 dc, 3 dc in next ch-1 sp, ch 1, (3dc, ch 1, 3 dc) into the next ch-1 sp (corner)** Repeat from * to ** two more times. Ch 1, join in the top of the ch 3.

Continue the granny square pattern by increasing the amount of 3 dc sts between the corners for every round. I did 19 rounds in total broken down like this:

3 rounds of pinkCrochet Bunny Lovey - Free Pattern by The Stitchin' Mommy www.thestitchinmommy.com #crochet #bunny #Easter #lovey #baby #blanket

I hope you enjoy this pattern as much as I did. It was very fun to make and Kaylee is absolutely in love with the bunny even though she’ll a little too big for a lovey.

As I mentioned earlier, I made a giant yarn donation to 2 very worthy charities. If you have yarn that you would like to donate, The Knitting Connection and The Mother Bear Project are two charities that need a lot of help. They were very excited for my donation and I’m hoping that I can have time over the summer to send them some finished goods as well.

    Howdy, I am just wondering if there is a way to crochet the bunny and then attach the yarn to it and crochet the blanket? Would that even work? Thanks for any input on this, no one else seems to have thought of this and I just wondered. It seems to me that it would work, just not sure!

    I am new to your patterns and I love this one. But I am new to the “magic circle”. Please explain and then I can move on.Thanks so much for these ideas!

      Hi Melissa! I use the long tail and a yarn needle and sew in between the dc clusters of the granny square. I make sure not to go through the other side so that the stitches don’t show. Hope that helps!
