Little mary lamb pattern series has been released!
This is the perfect lovey for a precious little baby.
This lovey is croched with a cuddly yarn called Smudge from a brand named Sirdar, it is so cosy and easy to work with.
I have combined it with a cotton yarn from katia called cotton-stretch that can be found here.
You can find the yarns i have used if you want to check it out!
However any cuddly yarn and cotton yarn that matches the hook size required for this pattern can be used.

Please note! it has come to my attention that some people have been taking advantedge of the fact that i am offering some of my patterns free. Or just using my pictures for clickbait- I am trying to get in touch with theese sites/persons and until i can get them to stop distributing my patterns.

Always show support to the small designers offering free patterns, this might be their dream and they will probably do a whole lot more free patterns if they get shared on social media like pinterest and facebook, so they can see that you love their work and appriciate that they share it with you!
