This is a quick and easy crochet teething toy that you can make for your babies or for giving at baby showers. Babies love to chew on things when they are teething, and when they don’t have a teething toy, they will find something else to chew on. So why not whip up a few in different colors so you always have a clean one on hand.
This pattern works up super quick and easy. It is crocheted with only two rounds around a teething ring and then has a cute little star attached in a loop.
I used the Wooden Teething Rings available at Amazon. Any plastic ring will do, however. As for the star, I purchased it on Etsy, but any similar teething toy should work. Or, it doesn’t have to be a teething toy; it could be anything else that baby loves to play with.
