Mr. Snowman the Teething Ring

This post contains affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more info.

It’s here! The first teething ring in my Christmas Teething Ring Trio Series! I am happy to introduce you to Mr. Snowman.

Mr. Snowman the Teething Ring is an adorable and cute gift to give any teething baby. The natural wood teethers are safe and nice for babies to get relief from teething. Get the free pattern along with many other rattle type toy patterns.

Mr. Snowman was the first pattern I designed for this Teething Ring series. He is smiley and cute and absolutely perfect for little babies to grab and chew.

You can get the free pattern below or you can buy an easy to read, ad-free PDF in my Etsy Shop!

sl st – slip stitch

st(s) – stitch(es)

f/o – finish off

Pattern Notes:

  • All parts of this snowman, aside from the scarf, are worked in continuous rounds. You will not slip stitch at the end of each round, so it is highly recommended that you use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of contrasting color of yarn to put into the last stitch of each round.
  • The invisible decrease (inv dec) is simply a single crochet 2 stitches together done only in the front loops without a yarn over between. If you’d rather just do a simple decrease, you are welcome to, but it will be noticable. 
  • Ch 1 does NOT equal a stitch.
  • It’s important to count the rows, so a row counter is highly recommended.
  • Follow the following guide for how number of stitches is communicated:
    • The number before the stitch is the amount of times worked in one stitch
    • The number after the stitch is the number of stitches you are to work that specific stitch into.
    • When stitches are surrounded by asterisks (*), you are to repeat what is between the asterisks the amount of times stated.
    • Number in parentheses is the number of stitches in each round. 
    • Eg. “*2sc, sc 4* 6 times (36)” means “2 single crochets in first stitches, single crochet once in next 4 stitches. Repeat this pattern 6 times. (There are 36 stitches in this round.)
