Harry & Harriet Horse Loveys – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
Harriet is designed with the beginner crocheter in mind, it has straight hair, a cute bow and the blanket is crocheted with the simple granny pentagon.
The two horse baby loveys are crocheted in neutral colors and are perfect for a gender-neutral nursery, but of course, you can play around with color palettes and make them in the color that suits your needs best.

The Perfect Baby Shower Gift
These adorable horse loveys are quick to make and don’t take up a lot of yarn, one lovey uses under 3 balls of yarn.
Pair them with the horse baby blanket for the perfect baby shower gift to an expecting mom (or you can just gift the loveys!).
It was designed to fit in a farm-themed nursery or toddler room, you can adjust the colors to fit with any color scheme or gender.
I have created a few videos to help you with this cute baby blanket and put them all in a handy video playlist on Crafting Happiness YouTube Channel.

Here is their International Website where you can order from if you don’t live in the UK.

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.
