Cuddle Bat Ragdoll Lovey
The Cuddle Bat is a ragdoll lovey that has a flat body, mimicking a security blanket for babies, toddlers, and young children. This adorable animal design is easy and works up quickly with super bulky yarn and a large, 5mm hook. It looks great with blanket yarn, polyester, chenille, or velvet yarn, though you can use other types of fibers too! The sample was created with Hobbii Baby Snuggle, perfect for a soft and cuddly toy.
Customize this bat blankie with different yarn colors. It’s unisex / gender neutral, and can be for both boys and girls. Kids will adore snuggling up to this sweet doll! It makes an eye-catching craft fair product, as well as a birthday gift, holiday gift, baby shower gift for expecting moms, or for newborn and infant children.
Video tutorials for the wings and hands/feet are available, and the written pattern instructions include photo references to guide crocheters through the doll-making process.
