NEW PATTERN: Liam The Lamb Baby Lovey Blanket
I designed Liam The Lamb baby lovey to match the sheep baby blanket I made a few months back.
I kept the same bobble stitch pattern and same head features to match the baby pram blanket, but I chose to make it a star-shaped lovey because I think it’s so much cuter than the regular square shape.
I used a modified version of the bobble stitch that still gives the blanket a lot of texture while using a lot less yarn. It also made the blanket softer and flexible because the stitches are not so dense.

The Perfect Baby Shower Gift
It will make a wonderful present to a shepherd, a sheep lover or anyone who loves farm animals, matched with the sheep baby blanket will make a one of a kind baby shower gift.
The blanket is crocheted in gender-neutral colors of white and grey, it’s suitable for boys and girls and will fit any nursery color scheme. Make it your own and choose any color that suits your taste, from pinks for baby girls to blues for baby boys.

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.
