Sun & Cloud Teething Ring Free Crochet Pattern



Happy Tuesday my fellow crafter!


I'm finally back with my weekly appointment in which I share with you all a new crochet project for free.


My latest blog post was about a cute bunny teething ring, and since I had such a great feedback from you about that project, I decided to work on a new fun design!


This time I went beyond the typical little animal attachment - I love recreating natural elements with yarn, and this sun behind the cloud make such a cute idea for a teething ring or a crib toy!


If you want to make this cute wooden toy even more fun for your baby, add a rattle into the cloud or sun!
