Sock Monkey Baby Rattle
Are you ready for another baby rattle crochet pattern? Today we’ve got an adorable rainbow sock monkey!
Isn’t he just the cutest? With his bright red nose and rainbow stripes? I love the fact that his ears are two different colors too!
The ring is perfect for baby to hold in his hand and the ears and his nose add some texture for baby to explore.
You’ll need Worsted Weight yarn for this baby rattle, but don’t feel you have to run out and buy specific colors.
This rattle is a great way to use up your scrap yarns since you can make it in any colors you’d like. Here’s how he looks in green and pink!
The finished rattle is about 4.5 inches in diameter and you can make it larger or smaller by simply changing the yarn or the hook size.
Since it’s for a baby I think it would be safer to embroider some eyes with black thread rather than using the little “toy” eyes, just because if they’re not attached really tightly they might come off.
The pattern is easy to follow and written in American crochet terms.
It’s easy enough for a beginner to complete.
