Note From the Editor:

This crochet baby blanket is one of the cutest I think I've ever seen. When I saw the name, it immediately reminded me of my dad. When I was a little girl and had trouble sleeping at night, I would always wake my dad up to come into my room. Each and every time, he'd sing "You Are My Sunshine" until I fell asleep. To this day, he still calls me "sunshine" sometimes. 

The original version of the song "You Are My Sunshine" was recorded by Jimmie Davis and Charles Mitchell in 1939. Davis, a country singer, is now credited with bringing country music to the mainstream. The song has all but lost its original identity but lives on as one of the most popular songs in history. It was even added to the National Recording Registry at the Library of Congress in 2013 for preservation. It has been covered by a variety of recording artists from Aretha Franklin to Johnny Cash.

So colorful. this sunshine pattern is perfect for display on top of side cabinets, or better still for giveaways. Baby shower, christening, birthday giveaways. Personalized gifts.

Oh man, I'm going to hook this for every one of my pregnant friends' baby showers this fall! Such a quick and easy way to personalize a registry gift.

I love this lovey pattern! It really is the perfect baby shower gift, especially if you dont know if the baby will be a boy or a girl. My sister is due in October, and I am looking for some adorable things to make for the baby. This will definitely be on my list.

Hi bjoyfulvance, This page links out to Lorene's pattern for the lovey, but Lorene herself doesn't check the contents or comments here. If you are looking to get in touch with her, I would suggest you click through to her website and find a contact form or email there. Good luck! Julia, editor for AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns

This truly is one of the easiest lovey to make. I have made a bunch of them as dogs, frogs, cats, and bears but this one came together the fastest. It's a simple granny square blanket and a round circle for the sun. How easy is that? Thank you for offering it for free!
