LEVI - the Super Easy Lovie

Please meet LEVI
- the Super Easy Lovie ! 

LEVI - the SUPER EASY LOVIE
I hardly ever make toys as I am rubbish at the faces! This is my first attempt at a lovie. I am sure you can do far better - but here at least you have somewhere to start. 


LEVI the Lovie


Requires ~

DK yarn – I used a cotton mix yarn so that this Lovie would wash easily!
A little polyester stuffing
4mm needles for the main part
3.5mm needles for the head – toys are generally knitted on a size smaller than usual needle to make a more dense fabric which prevents the stuffing showing through.

Cast on 2sts

Row 1:       Kfb, k1
Row 2:       K1, kfb, knit to end
Repeat Row 2 until you are happy with the size (I made mine 9")
Next Row: K2, k2tog, knit to end
Repeat the last row until you have 10sts left on your needle

Make the head ~

Knit 1 row
Purl 1 row

S1, kfb, knit to last 3sts, kfb, k2
Purl 1 row
Repeat the last 2 rows 6 times more                                 (24sts)

Work 14 rows in stocking stitch (knit one row, purl one row)

S1, s1, k1, psso,knit to last 3sts, k2tog, k1
Purl 1 row
Repeat the last 2 rows 6 times more                                 (10sts)

Cast off

Join the sides of the head
Add features to the face

Make the Ears ~
Using a length of the yarn used for the head, create ears by sewing a line across the top of the head at each side.
Stuff the head with polyester toy filling
Sew the gap at the neck closed securely
