Crochet a comforting Snowman Lovey for a special little one.

To make this extra snuggly, I have used fluffy chenille-style yarn, but it could be made using plain yarn as well.

I have used James C Brett Flutterby Chunky yarn in White for the main blankey and snowman, and Paintbox Yarns Simply Chunky acrylic yarn for the accessories.

Both of these yarn brands recommend using a 6mm hook for the yarns. If you’re substituting the yarns, please ensure that they are all of a similar thickness by checking the recommended hook sizes.

My finished lovey measures approximately 16”/41cm in diameter, with the snowman attachment standing approximately 4”/10cm tall.
The total folded length, from top of head to edge of blankey, is approximately 12”/31cm.

Gauge:
Exact gauge is not too important. Just try to keep your stitches compact for the snowman section.
I have used a 6mm hook for the blankey (as recommended for the yarn) and a 5.5mm hook for the snowman and accessories.

You will need:
Chunky weight chenille-style yarn in White (approx. 150yds), Chunky weight acrylic yarn in your chosen Main Colour (approx. 60yds) and Accent Colour (approx. 30yds), Plus a small amount of Black and Orange (less than 10yds).
6mm & 5.5mm hook,
Some toy stuffing - Polyester fibrefill,
A stitch marker,
2 pins for marking the eyes,
Yarn needles - standard and large eyed,
Scissors.
