Crochet pattern for two inter-linked rings in four colours.
A lovely, colourful and tactile toy for a baby or toddler.
Brand new pattern - thoroughly reviewed and tested, but if you spot a real error in the pattern, let me know and you’ll receive another of my patterns for free!
This pattern is great for a beginner as it uses only the dc (US:sc) stitch and its decrease. The steps are fully illustrated with colours photos, and the pattern comes with my full e-mail support.
Tutorials for making an ‘invisible’ decrease and and ‘invisible’ colour change are included, but these can be skipped if you’re after a quick and simple project.
For rings measuring approximately 9cm or 3½ inches in diameter you will need:
- 15m (17yds) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in each of 4 different colours
- a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
- stuffing material (details are provided in the pattern)
- a blunt yarn needle
- sharp scissors
Use crinkle material, textured yarn, noise-makers or embroidery to add additional interests to your rings if you wish!
Made with DK (Light Worsted Weight, Category 3) yarn the rings will measure approximately 9cm (3.5in) in diameter. But you can make these rings with any weight yarn and an appropriate hook.
This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.
Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed ‘tutorial-style’ set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don’t need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I’m doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.
