Children love animal security blankets! If you’d like to treat your child with just one, the Raccoon Lovey crochet pattern by Nancy Anderson makes a real charmer. The blanket features a fabulously colorful striped design on top of which you can find a little raccoon with a cute muzzle and arms. The detailed look will make it quickly become your kid’s best comforting companion. The finished measurements of this crochet lovey are 22″ x 22″ (56 x 56 cm). It’s a perfect size for a security blanket as you can easily tag along to a nursery or put in a stroller. This piece will also make a great baby shower gift idea.
The Raccoon Lovey pattern will suit anyone with a basic understanding of amigurumi and crochet techniques. The blanket part needs to be worked in joined rounds while the raccoon is made in the spiral. The Baby Hugs Medium Red Heart yarn will give your lovey a delightfully soft feel. You can follow the gorgeous colorway seen in the photos or feel free to experiment with your own shade combinations.
