  • Ella The Elephant Baby Lovey Security Blanket Crochet Pattern ONLY **

A beautiful baby lovey you can make in the colors that suit your baby, will do a wonderful baby shower or birthday gift. Ella The Elephant Baby Lovey was created to match the 3in1 Safari Elephant Baby Blanket (sold separately).

It is written in US terms.

Ella The Elephant Lovey pattern comes in two versions:

  • a waffle stitch pentagon lovey for intermediate crocheters
  • a granny stitch pentagon lovey for intermediate beginners who know how to read a crochet pattern and who have attempted amigurumi crochet before

If you are not familiar with the waffle stitch, check out the video tutorial on Crafting Happiness YouTube channel (link in the pattern file).

You also have the option to have her trunk positioned up or curved down.

I used a pink and gray color combination for this lovey because it was made for a little girl, but you can change the color scheme to suit a boy or make it gender neutral or simply to match the colors in your nursery.

Made with double knit (light worsted) yarn, this blanket is warm and soft, but light in weight, perfect for babies of all sizes and ages.

Both blanket patterns are adjustable and so, you can make them as big or small as you like, simply add as many rows as you like until the blanket reaches the size you want.

Supplies Used

Both options use relatively the same quantity of yarn. Below is the amount of yarn you will need for one blanket.

  • 2 x 100g balls of DK / light worsted yarn in gray
  • 1 x 100g ball of DK / light worsted yarn in pink
  • polyfill stuffing
  • crochet hook size 4mm
  • blunt sewing needle to fit the yarn used to stitch the parts together
  • 20mm black doll safety eyes
  • scissors and stitch markers (optional)

Pattern will be available for instant download upon payment.
