Reindeer Ralf rattle – free pattern

Free crochet pattern for Reindeer Ralf.  Use him as a rattle, teething ring or just as a fun toy or decoration.

Isn’t this Reindeer adorable?  The free pattern from Stip and HAAK is for a baby’s rattle, but it could also be a teething ring, or even omit the ring and create the reindeer as a hanging ornament for your tree.  Or add him as a fun embellishment to your silly holiday hat!  As usual, crochet patterns can easily be adapted to use the main features for a slightly different project.

  • Approx 25 grams of cotton for the head and the handle
  • A little bit yarn for the muzzle

  • 2.5mm crochet hook
  • two black safety eyes (or embroider the eyes if you are worried about safety)
