Dino Rattle Crochet

Hello to everyone,

With this free pattern, you can make a handmade and safe toy for your baby. The rattle is made with a wooden ring that the baby can chew on and it has a rattle box inside, so that it makes noise when the baby plays with it. Pick the colors you love for this rattle that is safe for your babies and get started.

I would like to thank Jennifer Santos for this beautiful free pattern. You can find beautiful amigurumi free patterns on our site here. Let’s start. Enjoy 🙂
