This crochet pattern guides your through a project that is so quick and easy to make you can expect to be done in less than 2 hours. You will only need small amounts of size 3 cotton crochet thread and poly-fill, so sourcing materials should be a breeze.
Naturally, you can customize the colors to your liking or to match nursery decor. How cute would cream and powder pink look? Or baby blue and light grey? Of course, you can always go with my bold mix of white, black and red. Infants are drawn to high-contrast color combinations, and toys in such colors earn their most genuine and undivided attention.
But this tactile toy is much more than a visually pleasing distraction for babies. It is the perfect first toy for the little fingers to try and grasp. The ring is narrow enough for the smallest of hands, and the bumps along the edge add an intriguing element to explore. And when the teething time comes, this tactile toy turns overnight into a teething ring. Which makes everyone happy!
You control the materials you use, so you can please any mom-to-be. I recommend crochet cotton thread as it is natural, and holds up well to washing. Seriously. If you make the toy with the recommended materials, you can regularly toss the toy in the washer and dryer for a cleaning cycle.
