I started knitting this little guy up this past weekend and finished him up tonight. The pattern was the Fuzzy Lamb (opens as a PDF).

I love his little tail! And the directions from the pattern were too cute. "Sew tail to sheep bum."

Easy, fast and a great pattern.

Hi there, my name is Stacie and I can't wait to knit some toys! When I heard a friend of mine was having twins, I thought about cute lil' matching sweaters, and then thought again... How many matching sweaters will these tykes have to perserver? Time to knit some toys!!

I blog at Mommy Mosh Pit, found this blog through the wonderful and talented f.pea and I'll be back.

Hidden Projects

I know many of you have books that may have toys in them that you may not have realized were there, so I grabbed some of my "non-toy" books that happen to have toy patterns, and put them here for you. My apologies for the picture heavy post.

Rabbit from Special Knits by Debbie Bliss.

Bears and Bunny from Nursery Knits by Debbie Bliss.

Pig-tailed dolly and finger puppets from Weekend Knitting by Melanie Falick.

Teddy, Dolly and Penguin from Nursery Knits by Zoe Mellor.

Bear from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss.

Bunnies from Simple Knits for Little Cherubs by Erika Knight.

Bunny, Bear and Elephant from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson.

I hope these projects give you some inspiration - I know I'm having a difficult time deciding what to knit first!

Button, button, who's got the button?

We do! We officially have the cutest.button.ever.

A big thanks to Jess Hutch for letting us use her cute bunny! And to f.pea for her mad button skillz!

Update: We have another thanks to Ms. Pea!

Remember to save to your own server, blahblahblah.
Hello! I am currently working on the teddy from the Mother Bear Project - on the Knitty Gritty website.

I started the bear a few weeks ago, but haven't done much since getting the main body knitting completed. I did sew up the head last night, and next I start on the sweater arms. It's coming along.

I've been reluctant to finish, as I don't have another project to start. I do have a UFO on the needles (baby blanket) but it's really not inspiring me...so perhaps knitting toys will get me over the hump for the time being!

Looking forward to seeing the other projects and knitters out there!

Hello All!

I love the idea of this KAL, I love to knit silly toys. In fact, I've already got one done!

No, it's not a Tribble.

It's a Huggable Hedgehog from Fiber Trends! I love his pudgy little belly.

I cast Sal on Sunday at about 3 and had him all felted by 9:30 that same night. (1000 bonus points and a cookie for those of you who get why his name is Sal, hint: look at the colors)

I've already got requests for 2 more hedgies and will probably make way more than that! The pattern is wonderfully well written and easy to follow.

You can find more of my babbling on my blog: Just A Knit Wit

I've created a Flickr set for us to use as well as the blog - I've uploaded the toys I've already knit, and I encourage you to do so too for inspiration!

Welcome to the Knitted Toys KAL! This will be an ongoing KAL, and you can knit your toys from any resource you like. Several books and free online patterns have been listed in the sidebar, and I'd welcome any more references you can send my way.
I know there are many more single toy patterns in many more books, and you are welcome to knit those as well, but I didn't want to have an enormous list in the sidebar (it's already pretty big).

To join the KAL please send an email to knittoys AT gmail DOT com (replace the at and the dot with the correct symbols), and I'll send you the blogger invite.

When posting, please tag your posts with the name of the pattern, and the author's name (if from a book) or the website. Many of the books have the same general title, and having the author's name will make it much easier to search out others who have knit your pattern.

Included in the free patterns sidebar are patterns for cat toys all well - who says all toys have to be for people? Heck, you can knit hamster toys for all I care! :)

Please email me with questions, and let's knit some toys!
