Not much work going on but plenty to play around with! Here are quick links to some knitting patterns children will love to get their hands on.
Flamingos are popular with every little girl I know at the moment, and there appears to be a flamingo on most things from bed covers to wallpaper. And so with a knitted flamingo to accompany the knitted unicorn and knitted rainbow, I think any little girls’ bedroom collection will now be complete.
6 Hour 40 minutes Each Knitted Flamingo (as shown)
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.
6 Hour 35 minutes Each Knitted Unicorn
This space scene picture knitting pattern was made to welcome to the world my new nephew. A nice little keepsake that can also be used to help children with learning colours, geometric shapes, and also counting stars.
5 Hours 15 minutes Each Knitted Picture (as shown)
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.
6 Hours 30 minutes Each Knitted Cosy
This caterpillar knitting pattern can help you to make the perfect personalised knitted gift. This is a lovely knitted toy for a child to cuddle, or make one super-long version for a happy draught excluder!
5 Hours 15 minutes Each Knitted Caterpillar
A nice addition for a children’s kitchen playset, but for children and adults alike, there's nothing like good old tea and cake! A knitted little cherry bakewell could make a nice little decorative gift - perhaps alongside a knitted tea cosy!
2 Hours Each Knitted Bakewell
As well as being cute little pocket-sized toys, or as a warning on the door for any approaching visitor (great for teenagers!), these can also be decoratively tied onto a door, or even added as a purse or hair charm. Several emoji knitting patterns to choose from!
2 Hours 30 minutes Each Knitted Emoji (approx.)
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...
