In the third part of all things baby week, I bring you the Mini Square Bunny Lovey! In keeping with the Granny Square theme (See 365 Days of Granny Squares project), I’ve created this cute little lovey to match the shoes, dress, and hat.

Ch 4
Rnd 1: Work 2 dc in 4th ch from hook, ch 2, work (3 dc in same ch sp, ch 2) 3 times; join with a sl st in top of ch 3. Fasten off.

Rnd 2: Attach new color in any ch 2 sp, ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), work 2 dc in same sp; ch 1, * work (3 dc, ch 2, 3 dc) in next sp (corner made); ch 1, repeat form * twice more, ending with 3 DC in beginning ch 2 sp where we started. join. Fasten off. (See video tutorial for visual instructions)

Outer part of granny square:
Row 1: In any corner of the mini granny square, ch 3, 2 dc in same sp; ch 1, 3dc in next ch 1 sp, ch 1, *[3dc, ch 2, 3dc] in corner, ch 1 sp, 3 dc in next corner. Ch 4, turn

Repeat the same concept of row 2 and row 3 until you make your square big enough. End on an odd row. I ended mine on row 7.

Assembly Step:
Once you have all 4 squares complete and as big as you want them to be, single crochet them together then continue on to the border.

Border of lovey:

Rnd 1: In any corner, ch 3, 2 dc in same sp, [3dc, ch 1] in each sp until you get to the intersection where the two squares meet. Dc in the single crochet from the meeting (see video tutorial for visual instructions), then continue working [3dc, ch 1] in each sp. (Corner: 3dc, ch 2, 3dc), work this pattern all the way around.

Rnd 2: In any ch 1 sp, ch 1, sc in same sp, *7dc in next ch 1 sp, sc in next ch 1 sp, repeat from * around.

Fasten off, weave in all ends.
