The soft Bunny Rattle is a perfect first toy for your baby. It will be soft and delicate, made of ultra-tender, pleasant to the touch. The rattling elements will encourage your child to play and positively affect development of the sense of hearing. Its shape will make it easier for baby to learn how to grasp.

Yarns :

Schachenmayr Catania Originals: The well-known and popular Catania is produced from high quality 100% combed and mercerized cotton. Yarn weight: Sport - 5ply | Fine(2) .

  • 0423 – pink

  • 0256 – dark pink

  • 0399 – gray

If you don't have this yarn in your country you can substitute it with anything that has the same properties as on the label above. Make sure it is a mercerized cotton.

For example:

DMC perle (size 8) : black ( embroidering the eyes)

Other materials and tools:

  • Thread for eyes ( DMC perle thread)

  • Needles for sewing the parts together / Embroidering

  • Wooden ring (5 cm diameter) ( Make sure the wooden ring you use has been tested for toxins and passed the test. A common curtain ring is not always the best choice as they might have been varnished or treated with something that is not visible on the surface.)

(the choice of hook size can be dependent on the tension of the individual crocheter use - each individual can change the hook size suits them best with certain types of yarn )

Leave a long yarn tail to sew it onto the ear. Make sure you do it properly as it is a small part that shouldn't com off ( it can be a choking hazard )

As a finishing touch you can embroider the facial details as it is shown below. Usually I use my make up blusher to color the cheeks but in this case I recommend to embroider the cheeks as well. You can use any pink or red embroidery thread for doing this.
