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.
The pattern is written in US terms, it uses basic stitches and therefore
is suitable for beginners who have crocheted amigurumi patterns
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.
Using the yarn weight and hook size suggested in this pattern will create a
lovey approximately 56cm (21in) in diameter, the head measures 12.5cm
(5in) and the arms measure 15cm (6in).
