Crochet Granny Square Pacifier Chain- a free pattern
Today I present the final part of the Granny Square Baby Toy series (for now): the Crochet Granny Square Pacifier Chain. It’s not a toy, but an absolute necessity for small children and needed in any case.
The Granny Square Pacifier Chain is simple to crochet. It consists of a basic Pacifier Chain and two small granny squares. I sewed rustling foil between the two granny squares. The effect is certainly very interesting for babies, but it is not essential. The Granny Square Pacifier Chain should above all be practical.
Pacifiers are constantly falling, disappearing into room corners, under cabinets and must be laboriously unearthed again. In order to avoid that a Pacifier Chain is the easiest and most effective item. A crocheted Pacifier Chain is therefore a nice gift for (becoming) parents. They are practical, pretty and soft.
The last feature is very important. Babies and toddlers sleep a lot and, although you should avoid it, they sleep from time to time with the Pacifier Chain in their mouth. That might leave pressure marks on the face and is certainly uncomfortable for the child.

Pacifier chains should be no longer than 8,6inch, otherwise it’s a strangulation risk for babies and toddlers. I crochet my pacifier chains with the Catania cotton yarn from Schachenmayr. The length is about right, it’s even a little shorter once pacifier and clip are attached. Depending on which yarn you choose, and how tight you crochet, you should vary the number of stitches to get to that length.
The three recent Granny Square patterns will be combined into a Granny Square Baby Toy Set instruction. In this new pattern the different crocheted parts are presented in order and the composition of the two rattles and the pacifier chain is described. So if you liked the three Baby items, you can find them all together in a clearly arranged free crochet pattern. If all goes well, I’ll be able to publish next week.
I am looking forward to your comments!
