Teddy bear rattle – free crochet pattern

This teddy bear rattle was crocheted spontaneously. For John, my little nephew, I was preparing another toy as a gift for Children’s Day. Month before I started to crochet sweet bunny with clothes. From the first single crochet my Victoria was very interested what it will be. From time to time she asked when I will finish. When everything was ready I said her, that it is a gift for John, but she was firmly opposed and stated, that she is the best candidate for this sweetie’s guardian 😀

Having no choice, I had to come up with something equally sweet, but this time also “quick”. This is how a rattling bear was created.

The crochet pattern came from my head, but to be honest, there is nothing really revealing there. The bear’s head is simple ball 😉 see for yourself!
