Tiger Teething Ring

Last week was a roller coaster! We moved on Thursday, which is never easy. My legs were jelly by the end of the day, and I didn’t even move anything! I was the cleaner. And, since I had to pack and clean and then move, my Tiger Teething Ring pattern was put on hold.

So here I am, one week late, FINALLY posting this adorable pattern. For some reason, I struggled with this pattern. Just like my lion, I had intended a very different technique. Color changing was my goal, but working in a round without joins makes color changing look a little different. So back to the drawing board I went!

It was then that I decided the best way to make the tiger, which had to be the cutest tiger ever, was to make it solid orange and add stripes. I love this, because you can make it your own! And making something your own, is one of the best parts of crocheting.

I am a member of a lot of different Facebook groups where people share their WIPs (Works in Progress) and completed projects. A lot of these projects are patterns from other crochet bloggers, but made by regular crochet addicts. It is really cool to see the differences in all these projects. So, if you want to show off your Tiger Teething Ring (or any of your projects done using my patterns), just #cuteandcozycrochet on Instagram or Facebook, so I can see it! I’d love to see all the awesome work you’ve done!
