Colorful Baby Teething Rattle Crochet Pattern
Hello everyone! This is my first crochet pattern posting online. Here I have created a little teething rattle crochet pattern for 6 months and up. Originally when I first bought these supplies I intended to make a breastfeeding necklace for my little one to play with, well, that idea never happened and for a few more months supplies sat around. It wasn’t until I stumbled onto these supplies again (I sort of tend to hide things from myself) that I realized I could make a teething rattle for my 1-year old son. I have seen some awesome ideas though liked how simple I created my little teething rattle.
My first attempted was a hungry caterpillar colors and my son absolutely loves it.He loves it so much that he tries to take rattles that I made to sell for my Etsy shop! While I have tested the strength on this teething rattle, however, I advise please, please do not leave your child alone unattended when playing with teething rattle. All material are natural and are safe for babies/toddlers. I just stress out that please for safety of your child do not leave them unattended with toy.

2.2″ Wooden Ring
with 3mm hook
Round 1: 9 DC around ring
Turn 5 sl st and ch 5 fasten off leaving a very long tail
It doesn’t really matter what order you put beads on first.
Here’s how I do it:
- With wooden ring that’s crochet and 10mm ball. Long tail on ch 5 I attached to my needle and go thru 10mm hole. I weave around ball and go thru hole three more times. This is important to make sure ball is fully secured. And you want to make sure last time going thru the hole is up and weave in and out of chain 5 until you are at top of DC weave in a couple more times. Make sure to pull with toddler strength that 10mm ball won’t come off. Don’t pull to insanely or you wills stretch out chain.
- After I’m done crocheting my 5 (20mm) balls I add them onto hemp string.
- Add other 5 non-crochet (10mm) balls to hemp string
- Add 2.2” wooden rings 1 crochet & 1 not onto string as well.
- I group all material together and tie string tight into a circle very tightly.
- Before moving on I try to pull apart teething circle to see if string needs another knot or not. Normally I double knot it.
- With hemp loose ends I take it thru one 20mm ball that wasn’t weaved in. I find it normally it’s easier to get hemp string in this way compare to when it’s closed. I get both hemp end it and clip. There is a chance it will be hard to pull hemp thru tho keep wiggling and pulling. It comes thru!
- Now is where I weave in last bit of string from 20mm ball.
There you have it! I hope you guys enjoyed this pattern.
