SWEETIE BEAR LOVEY
Designed by: Ariane Gallizzi
Size: One size
Finished Measurements: Blanket is 11" wide x 17.5" high (not including head or paws) [28cm x 44cm]
Yarn: 1 ball Trendsetter Yarn's Blossom and 1 ball Jo Sharp Soho Summer DK Cotton (details below) Needles: US size 9 and 4 [5.5 and 3.5mm] needles
Notions: Black yarn to embroider the bear's facial features and paws, polyester fiberfill (or other) stuffing, darning needle
Gauge: Gauge is not crucial, but your lovey might turn out to be a different size if you knit at a different gauge. For the blanket, use a needle that gives you a fabric that feels nice. For the head and paws, use a small enough needle to give you a pretty dense fabric so that your stuffing won’t show.
