pot of gold lovey crochet pattern

Materials

  • 4.5mm crochet hook (you can go down a hook size or two if you tend to have a loose tension)
  • Worsted weight (4) yarn in black, gold, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple (I used I Love This Yarn! from Hobby Lobby)
  • Stitch markers
  • Tapestry needle
  • Fiber fill/stuffing
  • Scissors

Terms & Stitches to Know

CH – Chain
DC – Double Crochet
FLO – Front Loop Only
INV DEC – Invisible Decrease
MC – Magic Circle
SC – Single Crochet
SL ST – Slip Stitch

Gauge

5 rows of 15 SC = 1.5″ by 4″

3 rows of 10 DC = 2.75″ by 1.75″

Notes

  • This pattern is written in American Standard Terms.
  • The pot of gold is worked in rounds. This means there is no join. Keep track of your stitch counts. 
  • Use stitch markers at the end of each round to help you keep your place. 
  • There IS a join with a slip stitch on the blanket pattern. 
  • The chain 3 in the beginning of each round in the blanket pattern is NOT included in the stitch count.
  • When you start your blanket, be sure to leave a long beginning tail. This is what you will use to attach the pot of gold to the top of the blanket.
  • Stitches placed in brackets [] are to be done in the same stitch/space.
  • Round/row stitch counts are placed in parentheses ().

Start sewing the gold top onto the pot. You will sew the gold onto the inside of the lip you created when you did your round of single crochet stitches into the front loop only. The number of stitches on the pot and the number of stitches on the gold top are not the same, so you will have to skip a few stitches on the gold top when sewing, or figure out the best way it works for you to attach. 

Stop sewing before you reach the end to stuff the pot firmly. Once the pot is stuffed, finish sewing on the gold piece.
