This gorgeous Butterfly Baby Rattle Crochet Pattern makes a wonderful gift for your lovely newborn. The toy develops baby’s touch, hearing and fine motor skills.
Use organic cotton yarn to surround your little one with only the purest things!
- Yarnart Begonia (100% cotton, 170 m / 50 g). You’ll need three colors for eyes (white, black and blue or green) and six more colors for the butterfly itself. All colors are up to you!
- Simple plastic rattle of 35 mm diameter. If you don’t have such a big one, use the smaller one and put it into the tail.
- Two 8-10 mm wooden beads for antennae (put them inside). If you don’t have them, just stuff these parts firmly.
- Sewing needle
- 1.75-2.0 mm crochet hook
Note: when crocheting for babies, please be sure to avoid the use of small parts or buttons.
