Little bear teether – Free crochet pattern

little bear teether

Teethers are such a fun make, excellent to practice your crochet skills, you can use all the colours you like and don’t you just love those wooden rings?

We turn the teether into something multifuncional by crocheting something around them. Teether and toy in one!

They are perfect as a gift or you can sell them on Etsy or a local market.

When babies start teething, their gums get sore The growing tooth causes itching, pain and discomfort. Chewing on the teether gives relief and feels good as it ensures counter pressure to the tooth.

These cute little bear ears are super easy to make. You just need a little bit of yarn and a wooden ring. I used Durable cosy fine, an airy mix of cotton and acrylic and available in 36 colours. It’s supersoft and the cotton absorbs the moisture of the saliva.
