Pacifier Tether / Clip

Posted By on March 26, 2017

Making bibs, for a friend who is expecting a baby this summer, I was left with small scraps of yarn. So I decided to make a tether / clip for the pacifier to match the bibs.
This is a very simple pattern. More like a guide to help you make your own.
I used weight 1 – Super Fine cotton yarn on a 2.5mm (C) hook. If your yarn is heavier you will need to start with fewer stitches in your foundation chain, and of course you will need to make fewer rows.

WARNING: If you make the tether too long it can pose a strangulation danger. I make mine so when attached to the pacifier it is between 6 and 7 inches. And always attach the clip further down on the child’s clothing, away from the neck. Never leave child unattended when using the tether.

You will need yarn, a 1 inch clip (I use Dritz Suspender/Mitten clips, and a darning needle.


Row 1: sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 6 ch sts (7)

Row 2-8: ch1, sc in 1st st after ch, sc in next 6 sts (7)

Put your work through the clip (if you lay your work on the table as in the photo, front of the clip should face down). You will be crocheting the foundation chain onto row 9.

Row 9: ch1, sc in 1st st after ch, sc in next 6 sts (7)

Row 10-40: ch1, sc in 1st st after ch, sc in next 6 sts (7)

Row 41: ch30, slip stitch in to the opposite corner.

Fasten off. Sew in your ends.

The flower. This is just a really simple 5 petal flowers.

Row 1: Magic ring, ch1, *hdc, dc, tr, dc, hdc, sc*, repeat *-* until you have petals, sl st into the ch1. Do not tighten your magic ring completely as it will be a lot easier to add the next row if you dont.

Row 2: *sc in hdc st, sc in dc st, 3sc in tr st, sc in dc st, sc in hdc st, sc in sc st*, repeat all around sl st in first st. Fasten off. tighten your magic circle as much as you can. Sew your ends in. Attach to tether.

The yarn I used is called Balinese Cotton Yarn. The weight is Super Fine 1. You can purchase this yarn at Lyn’s Crafts

You can find the bib pattern on Ravelry: Orlando’s Baby Bib
