Carrot Rattle

 

Supplies

Lily Sugar n’ Creme Cotton Yarn (Hot Orange and Sage Green)

3.5mm Hook

yarn needle

scrap yarn for marking rows

small round cat toy that rattles

Notes

Making my adjustable ring

wrap the end of your yarn around your first two fingers two times, so that the end of the yarn is closest to the end of your fingers.

Slide the crochet hook under the first loop, grab the second loop with the hook and draw it through the first loop.

Chain one (this counts as your first sc for the round)

Sc Decrease

place hook in stitch, yo, draw loop through

place hook in next stitch, yo, draw loop through

Thanks for the pattern....they'll be great for my grandson at easter!!

They make up really quick. I did both of them in one day and I have to chase my 2 year old around the house. I was able to create a panda one for a friend this morning. It is rather addictive because it is so easy.

When I was making a rattle for a baby doll at Christmas, i got a small container from the gum machines at the mall. I put some beans in it, closed it back up and covered it with yarn.

 

I only mention this here because I did see those eggs at Michael's the other day and I was thinking that you could use them with beans in for a rattle. just a thought. These toys are just wayyyyyyyy toooooo cute. Love them

I had not thought of the candy machine containers. I attempted to make shakers last year using regular easter eggs that I crochet over, but my neice and daughter were able to quickly dislodge the bottom and I could never get them back together. That is why I chose the cat toy because it was completely sealed.

I added this pattern to my favorites. I like your bunny better than the Lion Brand one on their website. Your ears are better, not as freakishly huge. :shrug I like that the body & head are in one piece. I am not as creative thinking to have thought that little time-saver myself. Thanks for the pattern.

 

Enjoy your day, everyone!:c9

Give yourself time, I never thought that I was creative enough to make all of the neat things that I see out there. You might suprise yourself soon.
