Nanny Square Lovie with Teether

Red Heart Yarns was so kind in providing me with their newest Baby yarn to test and work with!  It’s a medium weight yarn Called Baby Hugs. You can buy some HERE:   It’s the newest yarn of its kind on the market!  Tested and assured to be free from over 300 substances. Certified Safe for baby according to Oeko-Tex Standard 100 Class I!

They provided me with the cutest colors too. The orange hue is called Orangie. The green is called Aloe. The first thing I noticed is how soft this yarn is!  Not to mention safe for babies and easy to clean!  I decided to whip up a lovie with an organic teether attachment because what goes better with certified safe baby yarn?!?  A safe organic teether of course!

You can find these kinds of wooden, untreated teethers all over etsy HERE

I went with the classic granny square look. It’s fast and easy to work up especially with the Baby Hugs Yarn. I renamed it a nanny square because I call my granny, Nanny💙
