You may recognize this week's new pattern, formerly the Cluster Hat - Newborn. This hat didn't fit the newborn I gave it to (sad!), so I adjusted the pattern and renamed the old pattern Cluster Hat - Premie. The new pattern for this week can be found here. Sorry for any inconvenience!!
Even though her motor skills aren't there yet, my #1 loves to "jump rope." She has been using my yarn, the cord from the vacuum - anything she can find - and whipping it around while jumping up and down. I wanted to get her a jump rope, but I was afraid that the plastic handles would do some damage, with all the whipping. So, the crochet jump rope was born.
This was made to be a non-functioning toddler toy. You would have to use a weighted material (thick nylon cord, perhaps?) if you wanted to be able to actually use this as a jump rope.
Saftey Warning - this toy poses a strangulation hazard. Never leave child unattended with this toy.
