The Baby’s Bundle of Joy Crochet Pattern Bundle contains 50 designer crochet patterns from the top crochet bloggers and pattern designers. https://myfingersfly–nickishomemadecrafts.thrivecart.com/baby-crochet-pattern-bundle/
First, let’s start with a free sample – Flashlight Baby Rattle Crochet Pattern uses a baby aspirin bottle filled with beans and yarn from your scrap basket to make a cute little toy that any baby will love!

Size G crochet hook
Small plastic baby aspirin bottle and lid (washed thoroughly) filled with a few beans
Body: Rnd 1: With CC yarn, ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do not join.
Rnd 2: Work 2 sc in each sc around (12 sc).
Rnd 3: *Work 1 sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc, repeat from * around (18 sc).

Rnd 6: Join MC yarn. Working in back loops only, sc in each sc around. Do not join. Work even on 30 sc until the MC portion measures the same length as the pill bottle, then work another 4 rows of sc. End off.
Lens: With white yarn, repeat Rnds 1-5 of body. End off leaving length for sewing. Add a few beans to the pill bottle to make rattle noise. Seal and place inside body of flashlight, surrounding bottle with fiberfill. Sew lens to open end of body and weave in ends.
Lens cover: Row 1: With CC yarn, ch 4, sc in 2nd ch from hook and next 2 ch. Ch 1, turn.
Row 2: Working in back loops only, sc in each sc. Ch 1 turn. Repeat Row 2 until piece measures long enough to wrap around flashlight body (approximately 30 rows). End off leaving length for sewing. Sew around end of flashlight where body meets lens.
Handle: Rnd 1: With CC yarn, leave length for sewing, ch 8, join. Sc in each ch around. Do not join.
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each ch around (8 sc). Continue to work even on 8 sc until handle measures approximately 4”. Join, end off yarn leaving 12” length for sewing. Stuff handle firmly with fiberfill and sew each end to top of flashlight.
Work body as above until you complete first 5 rounds. On Rnd 6, *work 1 sc white, 1 sc blue, repeat from *. Increase 1 sc on Rnd 6 so that you have an odd number of stitches (31 sc). Repeat this pattern until body reaches desired length.
