Cuddly Crochet Koala Baby Lovey
"Make this crochet lovey pattern for your favorite little marsupial. The koala works up quickly using only one skein and some scrap yarn, which makes it a perfect baby shower gift idea. Instructions include a bow that can be used as a bowtie or a ear bow, making this crochet toy totally gender neutral. Add this cuddly koala to a new baby's gift basket or just keep a couple on hand to give to friends' new little ones. This lovey pattern is quick and affordable enough to make a great charity gift too!"

Crochet GaugeThe gauge isn’t necessarily important on this project, but since the head is amigurumi, you do want to find the appropriate size hook so that stuffing isn’t showing through. If there are gaps in your head, switch to a smaller hook.
