Make It Monday-Teething Ring Drool Catcher

I am tired of Monday's With the Maid (actually, tired of cleaning) and since it is my party, I decided to change it up.  Today I am going to show you how to make a really simple baby gift.  No joke, it will take you an hour...  if you are lucky enough to have an hour of un-interrupted work time.  As long as you know how to double crochet and hand sew, you are in business!

Teething Ring Drool Catcher

What You Need:
Cotton yarn (I use Sugar 'n Cream)
Crochet hook (I use H-5.00mm)
Velcro (about 1")
Teething Ring

What You Do:
ch 29
sc in 2nd ch from hook and each following ch to end of row (28 st)
Row 1: ch 2 turn, dc in first st, *sk1 dc in next st, dc in skipped stitch working in front of and around previously worked stitch, dc. Repeat to end.
Row 2:ch 1, turn. sc across
Repeat rows 1 and 2, 8 more times
Repeat row 1, leaving last 3 st unworked
Repeat row 2
Tie off
You will have a corner like this:
sc 3st down one side of the corner and sc 3 st across the other side. 6st
ch1, turn sc in each st
Repeat 11 times (13 rows)
This is the loop for the teether.
Tie off, weave in ends.
Sew Velcro to end of tab and base of tab.  I put the hook side on the tab and the loop side at the base.

Loop through a teether and you are done!
***Love this project, but don't crochet?  Look for a finished one in my Etsy store!***
