Learn to crochet a wooden ring teether for your little one. This photo tutorial leads you through this quick and easy crochet project your favorite drooler will love.

If you’ve been following my posts recently, you know this is the third wood ring teether I’ve created. This project is just so simple and fast, I had to share. I hope you can crochet one up for the little teether in your life!

I prefer the idea of my toddler chewing on maple wood over a plastic ring. However, natural wood products need to be inspected before giving them to a child. Look for splintering or cracks and dispose of any damaged ones.

We’ve never had a problem with our teething rings, but it’s best to be safe. Likewise, children should never be unsupervised with any toy or teether.

I love my wood yarn bowl! It was a gift from a friend, that was just perfect. The bowl keeps my yarn in place and clean.

I worked 16 single crochets, which covered my tail and about 2/3 of the wood ring.

Weave in your tail.

Be sure to weave it in one direction and then the other to prevent it coming loose.

I crossed the stitches to the other side to weave it back towards the end.

Lovely idea! I had a friend question about bacteria in the yarn and fibers coming off in crocheted products. I wanted to ask a fellow crocheter for advice in this. I would think just a typical washing and drying of the product would suffice for killing the bacteria. And I used a good worsted yarn that I believe would be good for non shredding with a child putting it in their mouth. Any advice or opinion on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi Erin! Sorry I'm just getting back to you, I've been sick this week. These are excellent questions. If washing & drying follows the care instructions for the yarn you use then that would be the best to keep it clean. I wouldn't recommend using a yarn that isn't machine washable for baby/kids items, since they need to be cleaned so often. I prefer a good cotton yarn for these types of items. As a mom, I'd rather my baby chew on cotton yarn than acrylic. I think acrylic yarns work well for blankets and loveys though. I hope that helps.
