Harper the Bear Rattle

Harper the Bear Rattle

I’ve been thinking about creating this pattern for a while, and after the release of my Harper the Bear pattern, I thought this would be the perfect time!

This simple rattle pattern works up bear-y quickly and is the perfect size for little hands, and with a couple new babies in my family, I couldn’t have created this at a better time!

As always, I would love to see your finished items so please add your Harper the Bear Rattleto your Ravelry projects!
