Little Hare Boy

Here is my next knitted hare.
The Little Hare Boy measures about 24 cm (9.5 inch) to tip of ears. All parts of him were knitted in the round with minimal sewing.
To knit the toy I used soft medium yarn and DPNS 2,5 mm. I knitted him using my own pattern.All pieces of bodies are knitted using stockinette sitches, for ears I use garter stitches.
Look, how funny he is:o))

Pattern:Twins knit
Needles: DPNS 2,5 mm
Yarn: 100 % acrylic DK
To fill: poly granules

Flower Power Elephants

The pattern for elephants is for free. It would be great a “happy back to school day” surprise for your kid or just something to knit in between bigger projects :o).
Toys were knitted on double pointed needles. They knit up quickly and is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn.
The pattern is available to download on Ravelry

Boy, is this guy a cutie-pie! Soon he'll literally be flying across the country from CA to NC to meet his new buddy, my friends' newly adopted 1 year old son.

The pattern's by Ysolda of - super well-written pattern, brilliant shaping.

Now. Off to make my own Elijah ... ;)

Sunny Teddy Bear

Today I would like to show my knitted teddy bear from an adorable Jean Greenhowe knitting patterns collection "Jean Greenhowe's Traditional Favourites". I think the teddy is a perfect project for advanced knitters and the teddy has been designed to look like the teddies from my childhood. He is traditional in appearance the design.

This little guy is knit with yellow acrylic yarn with 2.5 mm needles.

I made one little modification in the pattern - my teddy bear has bigger eyes.

I really enjoyed working with the pattern, it knitted up so nicely! My teddy's name is Promyczek (Sun Ray) because of his yellow body. The seated Teddy measures 22 cm (8.7 inch) from the base of the body to the top of the head.
Pattern: Jean Greenhowe's Traditional Favourites
Yarn: DK 100% acrylic 300 m = 100 g
