Single crochet around most of the ring. Be sure to work over your tail.

Continue to single crochet, as many as you like.

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.

  1. 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

    1. 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.
