Not much work going on but plenty to play around with! Here are direct links to some knitting patterns children will love to get their hands on.

Unicorn

A unicorn knitting pattern to make a knitted unicorn, with added ideas to make it perfect for your little one. Minus a horn, it also makes a great knitted pony. A perfect handmade playmate, or a wonderful decorative side piece.

Cosy Cuppa!

All this knitting wouldn't be the same without the perfect cuppa on the table beside you. So make a nice matching tea cosy to co-ordinate with your kitchen. Add a knitted fuchsia or two on the top or another little accessory for that finishing touch.

Wondering where you can fit in the time?

Often it's about making time, and if you really want to do it there is always a way. However, even with work, household jobs and children's busy schedules, here's how you can squeeze in that half an hour. (Opens in new tab...)

Here is some more encouragement!

"Don't just think about the destination, enjoy the journey." Read more on how knitting itself is great in a lot of ways. (Opens in new tab...)

I aim to have a new pattern up on the website every few weeks (children and their busy schedules permitting!) and I'll let you know as soon as the next one is up and ready to go...
