Buffalo Rattle

The fourth crochet pattern of my set "the Big Five baby rattles" is the Buffalo. The horns are the eyecatchers of the buffalo to ressemble the African buffalo. The pattern is fine to crochet for beginners. But the nose is the most difficult part, you need to use the popcorn stitch for the nose wings and skip some stitches to define the specific nose shape. The buffalo has a rattle inside the head to make it a great crocheted baby present.
