Bunny lovey / security blanket

bunny loveyI have worked on and designed a new lovey – a crocheted bunny lovey / security blanket. We are so fortunate that little ones keep coming into our lives among close friends and I absolutely love giving them a homemade present.

This time I have experimented with the traditional granny square and turned it into a six-pointed star shape.

Danish version can be found here.

I have made color changes each round,starting with: Rose, Grey, White. The color changes has been made in the slip stich at the end of each round.
With this pattern the lovey will not lay flat on the table, but have little folds for cuddling.
