Daisy & Duke The Cow Loveys – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
It was a long time coming, but I finally completed the matching loveys to the 3in1 cow baby blanket: Daisy & Duke The Cow Loveys.
The pattern comes with two versions of this cute cow lovey: one for beginners and one for intermediate crocheters.
The beginner version has a simpler blanket pattern made with the granny stitch in the shape of a pentagon, while the intermediate one has a more complex pattern for the blanket made out of granny hexagons.
Daisy has a two-tone ear, while Duke had a black eye patch and 2 different colored ears.

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 the 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.
