|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
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)
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
You will find my Teeny Tiny Levi Keepsake on this link ~

kfb = knit into the front and then the back of the stitch (this is an increase, s it makes an extra stitch)Delete

I have just finished a Levi out the head I the middle hope toReplyDelete

Love Levi how would I knit him biggerReplyDelete
I’ve just finished three, love the ease of one piece! Thanks so much for the pattern, I’ve improvised a bit with making it smaller by reducing the width of the blanket section and also reducing the 14 rows on the head to 7. Works out great! I’m making them either for the police department where I live or my son who is a fireman. Many times they are first on the scene of an accident and come across frightened children. I’m praying these will help them feel secure.ReplyDelete
Marianna, thank you very much, I am making it for my friend who has just had her first baby.ReplyDelete
