Maria The Unicorn Baby Lovey – Crochet Pattern by Crafting Happiness
Not long after I finished making the 3in1 Rainbow Unicorn Baby Blanket, I decided that it needs a little sister, and this is how Maria The Unicorn Lovey was born.
Pattern written in US terms using Craft Yarn Council abbreviations. It uses basic stitches and therefore
is suitable for beginners who have crocheted amigurumi patterns before.

The Perfect Baby Shower Gift
Make this lovey your own by choosing your own color scheme. Use shades of blue for a boy, make it unisex by using warm shades of green and yellow or keep it pretty pink, just like in this tutorial.
The gauge is not important but I will list the measurements below for your reference. Keep the tension relaxed, if your work is too tight, the ends will curl.

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.
