Crochet Pattern Release! Bunny Lovey/Security Blanket!

Hot off the presses is a new Bunny Lovey/Security Blanket Pattern!
I was inspired by a vintage baby blanket pattern and fell in the love with the filet crochet so much that I decided I needed to make my own lovey pattern. 

You can find the pattern on Etsy, Ravelry, and Craftsy.

Round 2: Ch 2, 2dc in same sp and in each dc around. Sl st to beg dc. (24dc)

I modified this pattern from Makes & Takes by working my stitches into the backbone of the chain.

Leave a long tail at the beginning and the end of the mustache (about 7 inches) for sewing.

Carefully sew the mustache to the surface of your coaster.

Weave in any loose ends.

All done!

Repeat this pattern 3 more times to finish the set.
