Crochet a comforter or a gauze scarf, these are the best companions for the little baby. Her first tangible toy to love. Mommies, omis and dear friends are asked here to pamper the little Wonneproppen with such a Schnuffeltuch.

Crocheting a quilted blanket is more than just making a toy. This first p├╝ppi for the baby gives him peace and security, it quickly becomes a comforter and best friend. Especially when falling asleep, it can be a great sleep aid. The Schnuffeltuch is always at hand and is usually close to the child's head.

The baby picks up the smell and will always reach for it, smell it or even suckle. For many children, such a comforter is the first confidant outside the parents. And later, when the little ones get bigger, the cuddly cloth becomes a constant companion, often even to kindergarten.

Crochet the Schnuffeltuch

Crochet a quilted cloth as a gift

Crochet a comforter is a wonderful gift for the baby. As a handcraft it is not only unique, it will remain unforgotten. Such darlings are not just carelessly put aside and forgotten. You are loved for a lifetime.

However, it is important to crochet with the Schnuffeltuch that you process the right yarn and stuff the head with a filling material, which is not only very soft, but also withstands the washing machine . Even if the little child will resist washing, sometimes it just has to be.

Schnuffeltuch or Knuddeltuch - we show you how to do it. You do not have to be a pro for crocheting our Schnuffeltuch. Once again, we have selected a guide with which you can crochet two different gossamer towels. A little kitty and a colorful dog. Both animal heads have the same structure, only the ears differ. And it was important to us that you can easily rework both towels without much crochet knowledge.

Material and preparation

When using the material you should definitely use a yarn that is especially suitable for babies . Since the little children take everything in their mouth, it is important that the yarn is free of pollutants. And, it should be cuddly soft and durable. So a yarn that meets the highest standards. Baby Smiles Cotton by Schachenmayr is an example of such a high-quality yarn to crochet a duvet.

As filler we also recommend a pollutant-free material. Holy filler is specifically designed for baby toys and therefore an example of what you can do with a baby blanket. It should definitely be washable and tumble dry at 60 degrees .

The heads of both Schnuffelt├╝cher are worked with a crochet hook the strength of 2.5 mm. To make the cloths very soft, we have crocheted them with a needle size of 3 mm.

For a crochet doily you need the following material:

  • maximum 100 grams of yarn in different colors
  • Crochet hook 2.5 mm
  • Crochet hook 3.0 mm
  • scissors
  • Needle for sewing

Basics

Crochet basic pattern

Both heads are worked with fixed stitches. Each crochet piece is started with a thread ring. You can find the thread ring in "Learn crochet (thread ring)" under "Thread ring - this is how you crochet a magic ring". Also fixed mesh, half and whole chopsticks are explained in our column "crochet learning" with pictures exactly.

Losing weight in rounds

When crocheting two stitches, always use only the front stitches of both stitches, then stitch both stitches together.

  • 1 stick
  • 1 air machine
  • Skip 1 stitch
  • 1 stick
  • 1 air mesh
  • Skip 1 stitch
  • Crochet the entire row

We have crocheted the Schnuffeltuch 28 cm wide and 28 cm high . Of course you can determine the size of the small cloth yourself. After the cloth is crocheted, the threads are all sewn, the whole thing is still crocheted with a clean edge .

To do this, crochet around the velvet cloth:

  • the 2nd row half sticks

Now all you have to do is sew your head to the cloth. You can decide for yourself whether you sew it on a corner or in the middle of the lace.
