Elephant Rattle

Every year I have a new years resolution. Last year it was my painting exhibition and this year it is the big five in baby rattle. With Christmas I have got all kind of colors of Ricorumi yarn and the great thing is that I can crochet one rattle with 1 ball of yarn. This means many baby rattles could be crocheted in 2022.

The first animal of the Big Five that I have crocheted is the elephant with its floppy ears. A very cute baby rattle and not that difficult to crochet. It is a great pattern for starters!
