If you’re thinking to yourself “wait, this looks familiar” – you’re completely right! This past summer I designed a small Rainbow Flower amigurumi pattern for Pride month. My cousin loved the flower, and asked if I could make a rattle version for their baby. Of course, I jumped at the excuse to make something cute for my adorable cousin-niece! (technically first cousin once removed, but that’s a mouthful and I have no siblings of my own… so I am unofficial auntie and she is my unofficial niece)
My cousin prefers not to have pictures of her daughter online (understandable!) so I have no pictures of her holding the rattle. But trust me when I saw she is adorable and squishy and I love her. <3 Her smile and giggle are so infectious, and she’s the first baby in our family in nearly 30 years so we are all over the moon and can’t get enough of her!
I’m excited to put my first ever baby toy out into the world, and I hope this baby rattle will make the little ones in your life smile too!
Although the original rainbow flower pattern had a smiley face, I chose not to give this rattle a face. Safety eyes aren’t safe for young babies, and I didn’t like how it looked when I embroidered a face on. However, you can definitely add one if you wish!

When reading the pattern, (_,_)*x means that you repeat the instructions in the bracket “x” number of times. For example, (Sc 1, Inc)*6 means to repeat (Sc 1, Inc) 6 times. The number in brackets at the end of each row is the total number of stitches you will have when you finish that row.
