Bunny Lovey Baby Safety Blanket Crochet Pattern

Hi Everyone!

I have seen these lovey blankets by many different crafters and wanted to try making one myself. I have this really soft yarn that my friends got me from Japan and decided to use that for it. It isn't perfect, but I think it came out quite cute! 

Here's the pattern:
Materials
5.00 mm Hook
DK Yarn (Lightweight Yarn)
Scissors
Tapestry and Sewing Needles

Granny Square Blanket
Round 1 - 10: I used The Spruce's pattern for the granny square blanket and just added a SC border in a contrasting colour. In my case, I used the same colour as the bunny to make it match. I have also used this pattern before if you would like another option. 
Round 11: SC around.
FO. Weave in end.

Embroidered Eyes and Nose
Eyes: Using the black embroidery thread and a sewing needle, go into Round 7 of the bunny's head and sew on the sleeping eyes about 1 cm (0.4 in) long and then another eye 5 SCs apart.
Nose: Using the pink embroidery thread and a sewing needle, follow All About Ami's tutorial for the nose, but don't include the bottom parts of tutorial. Sew it in between Round 8 and 9.


Assembly
Sew the ears onto the head into Round 4 with them flopping downwards. The ears are about 11 stitches apart with them on either side of the bunny head.
Sew the bunny head onto the middle of the blanket and have it facing one of the four corners.
Sew the bunny arms one row apart from the bunny head, on either side of the head.

Done! It was a fun little project to do and was fun to design a little bunny.
