I did not use safety eyes, because this toy is meant for little children. Instead I embroidered the eyes, using the French knot button. The ears are crocheted into the head, so they can’t come loose easily.

Important: you can clean the wooden ring with a damp cloth. It’s important to check the ring each time you give it to a baby. When the child has it’s first tooth, the ring shouldn’t be used as a bite ring anymore.

Attention:
This teether crochet pattern is made in continuous rounds. Don’t close the rounds. In the last column you can see the number of stitches at the end of the round.
