Quick Knit Project for Babies

This "lovey" is an idea I got while working in the church nursery.  Many of the babies have tiny blankies with a teddy bear or other animal in the corner.  I created this to be made with one skein of Velvetspun, Baby Blanket, or other bulky and super-soft yarn.  Simply knit a garter stitch square (in garter stitch, the item is square when the number of garter ridges equals the number of stitches cast on.  I used a bloom loom to make a flower for the corner instead of a critter.  This is a quick baby shower gift.
