Barry The Bear Baby Lovey – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
This cute bear baby lovey was created to match the 3in1 Woodland Bear Baby Blanket and together will do a great baby shower present for boys and girls alike.
I used the one row gingham pattern to create a smaller pattern that matches the 3in1 bear baby blanket.
The design for the bear baby lovey is suitable for girls or boys alike, it is crocheted in neutral colors, but you can customize it by choosing your own color palette.

First Double Crochet In The Row (Dc1)
Sc in the first stitch, ch2.
Compared to the usual method of crocheting a double crochet in the first stitch of a row (ch3), this method of constructing it will eliminate the gap that usually occurs between the first two stitches and will help bring the yarn that is not in use over to the following row.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
I am stuck on this pattern, can you help?
Every pattern you purchase from my shop comes with help and support. I will help you get unstuck and finish your project, so you can buy with confidence and try something new.
If you are completely new to crocheting, I recommend starting with beginner patterns and build up your confidence, pay attention to the skill level of my patterns and buy only if you are already at that level.
NOTE: The free version of this pattern does not come with the same help, just because it’s not fair on those who support me and bought this pattern.
That doesn’t mean that you can’t contact me if there is a mistake or something unclear with this pattern, it simply means that you will need to learn the stitches, the techniques and learn how to read a pattern on your own.
Can I crochet this blanket using aran yarn (worsted yarn #4) ?
Yes you can! The body parts will come out a little larger than my own, but still in the same shape, use a smaller hook than recommended for aran yarn to keep the size smaller. The blanket can be adjusted by simply crocheting more rounds.
Do I have to use the same yarn brand as you to get the same result?
No, you don’t. You can use any brand you like, but pay attention to the yardage, different brands have different yardage.
Can I change the size of the blanket?
Yes, you can. Each pattern can be adjusted by simply changing the number of rounds you make.
Can I sell items made with your pattern?
Yes, you can. Please check the copyright section for more details.
