Safety Rules For Crochet Baby Toys

Before beginning crocheting any toy, crocheters should consider the safety rules. Never choose yarn that sheds fibres for any baby item. Speciality yarns look lovely, but many are unsuitable for babies and some manufacturers label their speciality yarns as being unsuitable for babies. If your crochet toy needs filling, choose safe machine washable filling. Do not attach anything to your toy that could prove a choking or swallowing hazard. Another safety tip is that when you are crocheting a toy that is going to be stuffed with a filling is to ensure that your stitches are tight, so that little fingers cannot pull the stuffing through the crochet fabric and eat it.
