6 cutest toy knitting patterns (one free!)

I know how many of you love to knit toys for loved ones or charity and so I thought you might like to see my pick of the cutest toy knitting patterns around. It wasn’t easy whittling the choice down to just five, but I only added those patterns that literally melted my heart. I would love to know how you get on making these – you can send me an email or connect on social media. I always love to hear from you and about your creative stories. If you scroll down you’ll see that pattern number 5 is a free one – hope you enjoy!

Toy knitting pattern 3’To the Moon and Back’ Hares

Moon & Back Hares knitting pattern available to buy as PDF digital download on Etsy here

I defy anyone not to fall a little bit in love with this adorable pair. It’s by the wonderful Claire Garland and available to buy on Etsy as a PDF digital download. Inspired by the classic children’s story book How Much Do I Love You? this pattern includes masses of instructions and how to photos to help you make both hares. I think what sets Claire’s patterns apart is how she manages to capture a heart-melting sense of character and lifelike gentleness.

Claire and I were chatting before Christmas and she wanted to give my readers a little New Year ‘gift’. So, if you buy the pattern before the end of February 2022 you can save 50%.

There are a lot of teddy bear patterns out there, but this one stands out for me. The shape is just right, the face kind and gentle and there’s something about the baggy trousers that really makes your heart melt. It’s by Mary Jane’s Tearoom on Etsy and available to buy for knitting In the Round and Back and Forth.

Toy knitting pattern 5 Vintage Kangaroo and baby Joey

This adorable toy knitting pattern was originally published on 18th December 1968 and is available as a PDF download or printed pattern in the post. I love the simplicity of it and the fact that it’s been cuddled by children for more than half a century now.

Knitting pattern 6 Miffy (free!)

Both of my children ADORED Miffy, so I wish I’d known about this knitting pattern when they were little. It’s by Knitterbees and you can get the free pattern here as well as on Ravelry here. I think this one would do really well at charity sales – or as gifts for babies and children. You don’t need me to remind you (but I will anyway) that you should replace the bead eyes if you’re planning to give this to a baby or small child due to the potential choking hazard. I made a soft elephant for my youngest when he was a baby and used black felt for the eyes – which are still going strong 20 years later…
