Aria Lanyard

The inspiration for this lanyard is my adorable little niece Aria. While she is a fully fledged toddler now and no longer uses a pacifier, this design is inspired by her. The pattern is available on my Ravelry store. I am releasing a simplified version of the pattern for free today to accompany the teether lanyard.


A note of caution when making anything for a baby or toddler. Make sure they are supervised when using anything with teether beads. Ensure all the crochet loops are secured tightly. Use a good quality cotton so it will withstand chewing. Make sure all ends are sewn in and secured.
