For my 2nd child’s project I looked again at baby projects. For this you will need a 12 peg loom, loom hook, yarn needle, small amount of yarn.
REMEMBER: this is a baby's toy. Be sure to caution the recipient not to leave baby unattended with it.
Apply anchor stitch with 2-inch tail. Wrap all the pegs on the loom.
Rounds 1-3: U-wrap all pegs. (Flat stitch around.)
Round 4: purl around.
Rounds 5 – 7: U-wrap all pegs. (Flat stitch around.) On round 7, cut a long (2 inch) tail.
Pull tail through each stitch, pull stitches off pegs. Neatly close circle, weave in tail.
Place 3 small bells or a dog’s squeaker replacement into the circles.
Turn, use beginning tail to close 1st round. Weave in tail.
Attach the edge loops of round 4 (the purl round) to the pegs. 12 stitches.
Attach anchor stitch – knit first 2 loops flat for 6 rows. Knit off. repeat 5 times. Weave in all threads.
To make a ring, attach 2 loops between any 2 legs, with the piece on the inside of the loom. Knit 30 rows flat, knit off. Attach end of strap to loops opposite the beginning loops with the tail and yarn needle. Weave in threads.
