Free lunch: More knitted toys

Teeny tiny knitted animals. These are freakin’ cute.

More tiny knitted toys. The author says these are small enough to fit inside a plastic egg (so if you’re starting to plan ahead for next Easter…) She also has a pattern for tiny knit goldfish.

If you’re knitting or crocheting dolls and want to attach yarn hair to them, take a look at this tutorial. I wish I had known about this when I knit the doll Sylvia christened “Sesame” (and still plays with to this day), whose hairline starts right at the top of her head.

Here’s a pattern for a simple doll made of yarn and felt.

Want to stay away from dolls altogether? Try this knitted ball, a Grumpasaurus, or a Kiwi bird.

Looking for a stuffed animal that you’re sure the recipient doesn’t already have? This felted star-nosed mole will surely fit the bill.

Do you think this elephant would be afraid of this mouse? I bet they’d be best buds.

If you want your knitted toys to keep to a marine theme, try a Linux penguin, a frog, or Jacques Crusteau the lobster.

With a name like “monster chunks,” this pattern is hard to resist. (Don’t miss the link on the same page to “bunny nuggets,” too.)

I am very much not a fan of Harry Potter myself, but those of you who are may want to whip up a golden snitch or two.

And if you want the perfect gift for the dentist in your life, take a look at this molar.

    Love the molar. I think it’s adorable. I wish I had better patience to knit up toys. I have a patten for a super cute knitted lion toy and I just couldn’t get past the first leg!!
