Lovie patterns with arms!

Lovies with arms! Free crochet pattern for a rabbit and a mouse lovie that loves you back!

Depending on how you look at it, some of the ‘lovie’ patterns can be a bit creepy – it’s just a disembodied head – ha ha. But here is something much more cuddly, This lovie has arms and can cuddle you back.

The blanket part is soft and light enough to be gripped by the very smallest of hands and the head adds the character needed to make this taggy blanket become a firm favourite. There are lots of different textures to each toy and the little soft arms are perfect for wrapping tiny fingers around. It’s also fully washable – and heaven forbid it should ever get lost – another one can very quickly be hooked up before bedtime should the need arise!
