2 posts in one day – Wow, I must really be avoiding cleaning.
Here’s a very simple crochet pattern – it only takes about ½ an hour and voila – your baby has a decorative and functional soother chain, easily washed and can be remade when it gets too ratty.
I haven’t written many patterns so forgive me as I try to explain it as best I can and use a few pictures to help explain. Hope you can figure it out – it’s pretty versatile and you can make it to your own technique too once you have the concept.
Crochet Soother Chain with Flower
Cotton Yarn (doesn’t pill, washes well, kind of a pain to work with)
3.75 mm hook
Button with loop on the back
Suspender clip (found at the sewing store and took it apart so I was left with the clasp)
Count back from your hook 15 ch and join with single crochet.
Continue sc until you reach the end.
Join your flower colour (leave a long string for sewing).
Work 8 hdc in a circle around the last sc in the chain.
Join to first hdc with slip stitch.
*Work 3 dc in same hdc, sl st to next ch* repeat from * to* finish off.
Attach your button and clasp by sewing through repeatedly until it feels secure.
Weave in ends.
