Recently I had my third baby and I made him some homemade crochet toys to look at (while I crochet even more). I bought this wooden baby gym, but any wooden baby gym should be useful – or even a homemade one if you are more handy than I am (or less lazy … )

For the cloud and the bees I used free patterns. Below you’ll find the easy instruction on how to make to make the flower. The balls should be pretty self explanatory, I added a circular rattle box to those too make it more exciting (?) for the baby.

Flower:
I used a 2.5 mm crochet hook and DROPS Safran cotton yarn
You’ll also need polyester stuffing and a rattle box (ex. something similar to this), and a needle to attach petals and weave in ends.

R2: inc x6 (12)

R4: (2sc, inc) x6 (24)
R5: (3sc, inc) x6 (30)

R7: (5sc, inc) x6 (42)
R8: (6sc, inc) x6 (48)
