I decided to make her a set of teething rings for Christmas. I made them out of cotton so they'd feel good on her gums, and her mom could wash them over and over. I also gave them a nice long cord so that her mom could tie the rings to Katy's stroller, car seat or even wear them as a teething necklace while she's holding Katy.
KATY'S TEETHING RINGS
Small amount of 100% cotton worsted weight yarn (I used 4 colors, but I don't think I used even an ounce of yarn for the whole project. I think it would look so nice in just a solid color too!)
Size H hook
R1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in each ch across (15 st)
R2: ch 1, sc in each st across (15 st)
Fasten off. Leave a 12" tail. Fold the link in half lengthwise (like a hot dog) and whipstitch the sides together. Curl the link into a circle and whipstitch the ends together to finish the circle. Weave in the ends.
Make 7 more, forming them into a chain by linking them together before whipstitching the ends closed.
Using all 4 colors (or 4 strands of a single color) chain 65. Fasten off. Trim the tails to 1/2" to make tassels. Tie the tie through the top loop of the links (you don't have to tie it in a bow, but it looks cute if you do!)
