Today I’m revealing a new crochet pattern for these very pleasing inter-linked rings, and in addition to just the pattern, I have also created a complete kit to make it super-easy for you to run these up.

These interlocking rings make a fascinating tactile toy for a baby or small child or I’m sure you can think of many other uses!
My linked rings crochet pattern takes you step-by-step through making the design in your choice of one, two, three or four colours.
Made in DK (light worsted-weight) yarn with a 3.5mm (US: E/4) crochet hook, each ring is about 9cm (3.5 inches) in diameter, but you can always make them larger or smaller by varying your yarn and hook.
If you’d like a head start, or to offer this as a gift to a new parent or grand-parent, I have created a kit with 100% organic cotton yarn (hurrah!) and natural wool stuffing. Choose the four-colour combination you prefer.
The kit includes a blunt-tipped yarn needle and (optionally) a lovely bamboo hook. Also included is a recycled gift tag should you want to give the finished article as a gift.
As always, UK and US crochet versions of the pattern are available. That’s not one document with some notes to help you convert things, that’s two entirely separate documents – one on A4 paper, using British English, UK crochet terms and metric measurements, one on US Letter paper, using US English, US crochet terms and US standard measurements. I do this with the aim of making whichever pattern you choose to use as readable as possible for you.
