Baby Rattle Blocks crochet pattern

My Baby Rattle Blocks pattern has made the Free Pattern circuit since I first made this very set for my son in 2010. He still has them and uses them as ‘buildings and structures’ in his ‘cities’. These are wonderful to decorate a baby’s room or for tummy time. Handcrafted, they’ll last for years to come. I’ve upcycled Easter eggs filled with pony beads and used overlay crochet to add letters and numbers or a child’s name. This is a wonderful project for beginners or to use up some scraps. Not just for babies; use only 5 sides to make a small cube for storing clips or jewelry. What other ways could we use these blocks?

This pattern is for two different sized blocks- 4” and 3”.


Worsted weight yarn of any colors (I used primary colors which babies love.)
Felt- if you want to sew or glue letters
Container to hold beads, beans, coins, clips or anything that will move around inside
Hot Glue or other strong adhesive to glue the container shut and add felt.
Toothpicks or safety pins to hold the squares together while you sew them so you don’t accidentally grab a side that doesn’t belong.

NOTE: You definitely want them to be squares so test it out. As you are crocheting, stop periodically and fold the square into a triangle. When the sides are even, you have a square. Tension is going to determine whether or not you go to the exact row I went to. This makes it so you don’t have to check your gauge for such a small piece and they will match up when you sew them together.

Small block- Make 6
R1: ch13, sc 12, ch1 & turn
R2: sc across, ch 1 & turn
R3-10: repeat R2 (sc across, ch 1 & turn)
If the sides are not equal, you will need to remove or add rows. Fasten off. Sew in tails, sew over them or tuck them in when you are stuffing the blocks.

Large block- Make 6
R1: ch21, sc 20, ch1 & turn
R2: sc across, ch1 & turn
R3-R17: repeat R2 (sc across, ch 1 & turn)
If the sides are not equal, you will need to remove or add rows. Fasten off. Sew in tails, sew over them or tuck them in when you are stuffing the blocks.

Tips for Sewing the squares together:
First of all, get your rattle glued and drying first.
Remember not to sew your block shut before you stuff it! (Yes, I did that twice.)
You may use a slip stitch to put the pieces together, but I found that single crocheting them together makes them appear more square and keeps them from turning into a ball when baby starts playing with them. I also recommend you hold a couple of squares together with a pin or tie while you put this puzzle together.
Stuff these lightly so they don’t turn into balls.
Once you have sewn them together, tuck your tails in and you may use crochet overlay, glue or embroider letters or smiley faces. Click
