Minion Cuddly (Lovey)
This minion lovey or buddy blanket is designed by Elaine Okupski. You could do a two-eyed minion, make his smile different, make his hair different. About 14″ from top to bottom – can be made longer or shorter by adding or subtracting rows to “skirt”
Kerstin Seidenath’s cuddly blankie has been adapted by knitters as a duckling, hippo, caterpillar and more.
Bunny Buddy Blanket
This is the classic Lion Brand design. The body is knit flat with increases and decreases creating the diamond shape. The head is a double knit square that is then stuffed. Optional paws are cast on stitches that are knotted. Depending on your gauge, the diamond can be square or elongated.
Kitty Baby Blanket Buddy
Hattie Tavares designed the pattern for this lovey that uses less than an ounce of any fingering or sport weight yarn that’s baby friendly.
Patterns for Purchase
This rubber duckie blanket buddy can double as a puppet because the head is hollow. Perfect baby shower gift. The designer HugKnits says you can sell items made from this pattern!
Mini Cuddly Blankies
The finished blanket measures just 11 inches/28cms, just right for babies. There are 5 characters included in this package: Bear, Monkey, Elephant, Duck, and Puppy Puppy
Choose from 10 designs by Yolanda Soto-Lopez of AllCraftsChannel.com: Brown Bear, Bunny, Lamb, Penguin, Duck, Owl, Puppy, Kitten, Panda, and Giraffe. Each lovie consists of a 12-inch square blanket with the stuffed animal head and arms (or wings) attached at the center.
Top This! Blanket Buddies
This collection of patterns couldn’t be easier. Just buy a ball of Top This! yarn with the cute animal head included and knit up a lovey. Pattern includes instructions for monkey, puppy, and kitten, but I’m sure you could substitute one of the other animal yarns such as giraffe, owl, teddy bear, and more.
Penguin Security Blanket Lovey
The blanket portion is knit flat in garter stitch for great tactile stimulation, head is knit both in the round and back & forth for the charted colorwork portion. I’d put stuffing in the head but that’s a personal preference.
