Pattern Description:

I love creating designs that will stimulate learning in a fun ways! And my Knit Baby Rattle Assortment of wrist, ring and stick rattles fits the bill! With 9 design choices your special someone will benefit from the first wiggle. Airtight mini rattle inserts within soft surroundings provide gentle rattle sounds inside contrasting colors and patterns, which stimulate and reward exploration and develop eye-hand coordination from birth. Velcro allows you to easily attach the wrist rattles to the wrist, and band length can easily be adjusted to accommodate any wrist size. Knit in the round and using small amounts of #4-worsted weight yarn, these rattles are great stash-busters, take little time to make, and would be great add-ons for shower gifts!

Gauge is not critical for this project. Work
tightly enough to ensure that the stuffing will not show through the stitches.
