Crochet Lovey Pattern

Crochet Lovey Pattern - Lovey Shells and Chevrons - free crochet pattern by Simply Collectible

I was inspired by Red Heart Yarns Baby Hugs to make Lovey Shells and Chevrons mostly because of the softness of the yarn. In working out several stitches with it, I knew I wanted the piece to pop with shadows and contrasting stitches. You must work with this yarn to feel how lovely it is. My favorite part is that it is certified chemical free! That is perfect baby and for those of us with with compromised immune systems. Rest assured that they aren’t just baby colors.
