Teddy Bear Lovey Crochet (Part 1) – Free Crochet Pattern


I made this Teddy Bear Crochet Lovey for my nephew. I’ve been given some pictures of him with his crochet gift below if you’d like to see it. This crochet teddy bear lovey pattern is so easy to do and is sure to bring a smile to any face as they receive it!

I made the Unicorn Lovey for my Niece, but I also have a Baby Nephew so I just had to make one for him as well! And since unicorns are really the preferred style for baby girls, I decided on a Teddy Bear one for him. I think he came out so cute! What do you think?

Part two is now released, you can find it here

First thing you need for a lovey is a great stitch for the afghan! I’ve been looking for something to make with this stitch since I first filmed a tutorial on it back in 2017.

I was lucky enough to find two solid colors that matched really well with the variegated yarn I found.


SIZE of this Afghan

  • 57 centimeters wide and 71 centimeters long
  • 22 inches wide and 28 inches long



These sizes are measured using my gauge of 1 cm per stitch or 5 cms or per 2 ½ inches per shell.



If you want to a larger afghan with this stitch then Double Crochet Foundation Stitch or chain # in ()

  • Twin – 152 (155)
  • Full – 188 (191)
  • Queen – 206 (209)
  • King – 248 (251)

To end your row: Sc in lst ch 1 space of row. CH 3 and turn.

* CH 2 and sc in the next ch 2 space. Ch 2.

FPDC dec using the next DC, then skip over to the next DC next to your ch 2 space and finish your FPDC decrease. * Repeat for row.

To end your row: Repeating the same pattern, when you get to the last FPDC dec of row, finish your FPDC dec by using the last sc of the row. Ch 3 and turn.


Row 5

ch 3 counts as the first st of the row. On this row you will be putting 2 DC’s in your ch 2 spaces and 1 DC in each of your sc and FPDC dec stitches.

Repeat rows 1 – 5


The Border

Using your 5 mm \ H hook

Attach your yarn in the corner of one of the top rows.

Do a DC attachment or sl st and ch 2. DC 2 more times in the same stitch. DC 3 in all stitches at the top.

At the end of the row HDC in the first side stitches, then continue down the side of the afghan putting one SC in all sts. Keep your sc’s as even as you can. The goal is to not put to many single crochets together, but as evenly spread out as you can.
