Here’s a free crochet pattern for a simple baby teething toy. I make these to look like sunflowers but you can make them in any color. Make many flowers in many colors! When made with acrylic yarn, they are also easy care. Meaning, they can be cleaned in the washing machine and air dried or even thrown in the dryer.
This pattern takes very little yarn. You will need the following supplies:
Approximately 3 oz of yarn
CH 4 and form ring
R1 – CH 2 and then stitch 11 HDC in the ring. This will give you a total of 12 HDC in the ring. Join and CH 2.
R2 – 2 HDC in each stitch around. Join and CH 2.
R3 – HDC in first stitch. 2 HDC in the next stitch. HDC in the next two stitches. Continue to increase every third stitch until you reach the starting point. Join and CH 2.
R4 – HDC in first stitch. 2 HDC in the next stitch. HDC in the next two stitches. Continue to increase every third stitch until you reach the starting point. Join and tie off.
Join the two flower centers with the back sides together on the inside. You are going to stitch the two parts together.
Join the flower petal yarn at the starting point and then 3 TC in each until the opening is about one inch. At this point, stuff the flower center with polyfiberfill. Then, continue with 3 TC in each stitch until you reach the starting point. Join and tie off.
That’s it!! – So Simple.
