Mouse head lovey*

It seems like loveys are the new fall fad, and why not? They are as simple as they are versatile. There are as many lovey ideas as there are cartoon characters, but with your imagination, or a child’s idea, you can make a lovey of your very own. I chose a simple design, traditional Mickey and Minnie. I love the idea of getting my blanket fix on a much smaller level. Loveys don’t take that much yarn either. To alleviate boredom, I usually chose a different blanket pattern for each head. It keeps it interesting. Click here to see my last lovey, the frog.

Mouse head

Materials needed- small amount of worsted weight black yarn, G (4mm) hook
Do not slip stitch or chain. This pattern is worked in rounds. Use a marker to keep track of your stitches. Stuff with washable, baby safe material as you go.

In a magic ring, sc 6x.
Rnd1: 2sc ss 6x. (12sc)
Rnd2: *2sc ss, sc, repeat to end. (18sc)
Rnd3: *2sc ss, sc 2x, repeat to end. (24sc)
Rnd4: *2sc ss, sc 3x, repeat to end. (30sc)
Rnd5: *2sc ss, sc 4x, repeat to end. (36sc)
Rnds6-11: sc in each st. (36sc)
Rnd12: *sc2tog, sc4x, repeat to end. (30sc)
Rnd13: *sc2tog, sc 3x, repeat to end. (24sc)
Rnd14: *sc2tog, sc2x, repeat to end. (18sc)
Rnd15: *sc2tog, sc, repeat to end. (12sc)
Rnd16: *sc2tog repeating to end. (6sc)

Make sure the hole is not too big for the stuffing to come loose.

Repeat to round 5 twice for the ears and sew firmly in place. Sew the head firmly onto the lovey and weave in all ends.

For Mickey I used a variation of this square. For Minnie I used a variation of this pattern from Bernat. You will need to log in to view.

  1. Ive never seen one like this awsome

    1. Thanks! I think I may have gotten the idea from Pinterest. Someone sells them on Etsy, but it much more fun to make one exactly the way you want.
