I ordered these 2″ maple teething rings on Amazon http://amzn.to/2lvT7pE
and I’m really enjoying working with them. There are smaller quantities available if you don’t want 20, like I did! http://amzn.to/2mI3cQq
Check out my Bunny Teether I created with them.
I used some scrap yarn I had leftover from another project.
I used Bernat Maker Home Dec in Pacific Varigate. It’s a cotton yarn, so perfect for little ones to chew on!
And washable, always a must! I used this little ball here to create this project. Now on to the pattern.
I love this yarn bowl from Amazon!

Wood rings http://amzn.to/2lvT7pE
Cotton yarn in your choice of color(s), sample is made with Bernat Home Maker Decor Yarn
Size K crochet hook, scissors, yarn needle
Slip stitch onto your hook and insert into the ring. .
Slip stitch on to the ring and chain 1
Single crochet around. I had 29 sc. You want to keep your stitches close together.
This yarn is stretchy so I was sure to make my stitches tight and close together.
This is a great project to work on even stitches, if you’re new to crochet!
When you get back to where you started you’ll begin chaining for the necklace part. I chained 74, and could’ve easily made it longer, but I was working with scraps.
Once your chain is as long as you like, slip stitch back onto your ring.
Here you want to check that the wood ring is covered in stitches-add more right where you are, if needed.
Now slip stitch back up the chain you made for your necklace. Slip stitch in each chain until you get back around again.
Once you’re back at the wooden ring, fasten off and secure your end.
I was sure to weave my end in two different directions, crossing over
I try to be extra cautious when making things for little ones!
And there you have it! My little one loves to fiddle with the ring while nursing and chews on it when I’m just holding her.
