The Wrist Rattle is a simple toy for a baby. The bells are stitched between two layers of knitted fabric, so there is no choking hazard. The pattern uses a provisional cast on and kitchener stitch (instructions for both are included in the pattern), and is a great way for beginners to master these two techniques.
