Since having the pleasure of becoming a mother, I am always interested in things that will not only comfort my baby, but stimulate him. And when my son was learning to fall asleep by himself, I noticed he like to take something with a texture and rub it between his little fingers.

I wanted to make something sweet for him to hold and help him drift off to dreamland. Made in a superwash yarn that has a good amount of cashmere and merino, this lovey is soft enough to rub on little cheeks, but textured enough to touch and feel comforted.

The two round blanket repeat makes for easy, mindless knitting that requires a minimal amount of memorization – perfect for a busy parent to knit.
