This is something that as soon as I saw it I knew I had to make one. I have created this one in the same pinks as the baby blanket I made to make cute little gift set.
Made up of segments, the shaping of this little ball is ideal for little hands to grip and will also help with development and coordination, once they start crawling little ones will be able to push it or roll it along.
So here is how is looks through the stages, first, you make 12 segment pouches.
Then you make a string of lids for your segments. This can be done as one long string or in 3 batches of 4, it really depends on your choice of colours, if you are using all one colour you can do it it one string.
I saw this on make my day creative where you will find the link to this free pattern. There are others too, animal and flower versions by the author Dedri Uys on Ravelry. I am going to try the flower one next.
