“Mommy, where is the baby?”, said my 3yo son after looking at the finished Sweet Carrot & Cool Carrot together. Well, that’s how this Baby Carrot came about. Baby Carrot is very tiny — knitting him was quick and easy (he is like a miniature version of the other carrots). However, I gave him a different hair for fun, the green tops are cut slightly uneven and braided. I left the green tops long, but I think it will look good too if cut short.

Cut the Orange yarn, and leave approx 10cm tail for seaming at the end. Now, you want to repeat the Cool Carrot green tops procedure. I have written a detailed instructions with video tutorials on how to do the hair in my Cool Carrot post, please refer to it there.

The difference is that you may want to cut your yarns after you finished tying the slip knot so it’s easier to handle as you don’t want to cut it really short and having trouble tying the knots later on. After you finish tying the knots, I braid the hair using 3 strand braid technique, then I later trim the hair to desired length.

Here comes last minute Halloween knit ideas! Well, you know Halloween usually full of scary stuffs, but what if you don’t want it to be too scary for the little ones? Try knitting cute candy floss monster, it’s cuddly and adorable (and you can also teach the kids not to forget brushing their teeth or candy floss monster will come and get them!). This cotton candy floss monster knitting pattern is very easy to make.

For the mouth, I use garter stitch and different yarn to highlight it. The mouth is knitted in one go as you are knitting the body (yeap, it saves time and headache from having to embroidery later on)

Cute Colorful Candy Floss Monster free knitting patterns

For the yarn, I chose Lincraft Entice for the main body and pink non hairy yarn for the mouth to give it contrast. I just love love LOVE

. It’s soo soft to the touch and has the hairy look fitting for candy floss and monster (Rawr!) If you are making this for babies, please check the yarn is safe as I couldn’t find any information online whether this yarn will be suitable for baby or not.

I have included 2 instructions, one to knit on straight needles or to knit in the round. You can choose whichever you want to do. Obviously, the advantage of knitting in the round is that you have less seaming to do in the end, thus you finish quicker ;) . But if you are just starting out, you may want to try knitting in straight needles as it’s very easy to do!

Facial Features:

So, I did say I will create a friend for my Sweet Carrot and here he is! Ok, so what’s the difference?

Main differences between Cool Carrot & Sweet Carrot knitting patterns:

  1. For the increase, Cool Carrot is knitted with M1 instead of Kfb. Since using slightly smaller needles for the yarn recommendation, I didn’t encounter problem with Kfb creating small holes. But with M1, you still get that slight indented surface and the same effect of carrot lines, but the surface is more smooth overall as Kfb stitches create bumps on the fabric. The patterns are interchangeable so you can pick which ones you like for making the carrot!
  2. What else? Well, Cool Carrot is slightly taller than Sweet Carrot! The increase in height is notable in Round 41 to Round 48. So if you don’t like him tall, simply skip those rounds. Alternatively, you can repeat the increases to make him even taller. ;) (Please refer below for instructions on how to increase the carrot in more details)
  3. And of course, you can’t miss that hair! Cool Carrot has different tops and he gets foil highlight to make him looks trendy!

Cool Carrot doing his hair

You want to tie a slip knot, having both ends on one side and inserting them inside the loop

Cut yarn and leave approx 20cm tail. Now, I prefer to do the face embroidery before I close up the hole. If you don’t like having DPN needles as you are embroidering the face, you can transfer your stitches to stitch holders. I use dark brown thread to match the colour of my Sweet Carrot. When you are done, stuffed the body with fillings of your choice. Do not close the hole yet. Now we will make the carrot greens.

Carrot Greens:
You should have 12 live stitches remaining in your DPN / stitch holders.

    1. Cut 6 light green yarns and 6 dark green yarns at approx 16cm length each. (What we want to do is to insert these green yarns inside the live stitches and secure it by tying a slip knot)
    2. Use tapestry needle and thread a light green yarn into the first loop of your live stitch.
    3. Release the needle from the yarn.
Cool Carrot showing green tops before closing

This is what the head looks like with 2 DPN remaining

  1. Then insert the needle back to the light green yarn that’s already inside the loop and thread it back out the same hole, without taking the the yarn you previously inserted off the loop
  2. Release the needle from the yarn once more, then tie a slip knot to secure the yarn. (Do not remove your live stitch from the needles / stitch holders yet)

Grab the dark green yarn next and repeat the above 5 steps. Repeat this process while alternating between the light green and dark green yarn.

When you have finished adding the green yarn to the 12 live stitches, use a tapestry needle and thread the orange yarn through all the loop (now you can remove the stitch from the needles / stitch holders), pull the yarn tight and secure. You can also trim the hair to even things up at the end.

I have also included a video below to help you, hopefully it all make sense!

Free carrot knitting patterns, ribbing effects

Sweet Carrot side view to show ribbing effects

These days I am bursting with surges of inspiration (well I guess it’s a good thing!), only problem is I cannot keep up with it (I can’t seem to knit fast enough before the next idea pops up to my head). But, for now …  Here I present Sweet Carrot, the new family addition of Free Cute Knit. The knitting pattern is purposely done so it has natural ribbing effects throughout the whole carrot body, which creates this texture similar to real life carrot! I really love cute things (I think that’s pretty obvious seeing the website name and all :P ), so I sew embroidery for the face. However, If you like realistic knit, feel free to go without the face embroidery instead.

I use Kfb increases when knitting the carrot, but since I use smaller needles for the recommended yarn, no holes are shown in the finished product :) . I am in the process of knitting and creating a friend for my Sweet Carrot — I just hate to see her alone … I don’t want to reveal too much yet, but let me say that I will be modifying the pattern to use M1 instead of Kfb so you can see the different effects it will produce. Also, getting back to face embroidery, I use dark brown thread for the eyes and mouth instead of black to give it more subtle and sweet look to the carrot.

Last but not least, I include a short video below of how I secured the carrot greens together, hopefully it will help someone when making it.

Happy knitting!

Finished Size: approx 2.5cm tall x 1.5cm width x 1.3cm depth (Please note that this size is made with the needles & yarn specified below, different yarns and needles size will produce different results)
*Important* due to its tiny size this candy corn alone is not suitable for children under 3yo. If you are making it with the mouse, please ensure you stitch them together very tight so they will not separate when pulled.

Needles: US 0 – 2.0 mm

Yarn:
Body Yellow — Panda Cotton Blend 8ply in 6 Yellow (dye lot #120501)
Body Orange — Lincraft Double Knitting Yarn (dye lot #1189)
Body White — Panda Cotton Blend 8ply in 1 White (dye lot #12001 )

Facial Features:
black sewing thread for eyes and mouth & pink sewing thread for cheek

So, here comes the tiny candy corn, yet another free Halloween knitting pattern! This super cute free knitting pattern is designed by Anna Hrachovec, and you can find it here.


Cute free candy corn knitting pattern
This pattern is easy to make (I would’ve put it down as very easy if not for the requirement to knit with DPN). There is nothing tricky about this pattern other than the tiny size itself. It’s my first time knitting with size 0 needle and it’s quite challenging in a very fun way :) . I’ve used a grey sewing thread to join my knitted mouse hand together — it’s just a light stitch so I can cut the thread off anytime later.
Stuffed toys - Candy Corn easy & fast knitting patterns
Throughout the whole knitting process, the trickiest row I find will be the last 2 stitches on row 9 as you have to knit 2 stitches together in a very tight space. I think i spent most of my time stuck trying to do the k2tog ;) The pattern is very fast to knit otherwise, totaling only 10 rows to complete! Another notable thing, when you are knitting the candy corn, be sure to secure your yarn early as you progresses. The candy corn is sooo tiny and turning it over was almost impossible near the end. But all in all, this candy corn is just too cute to resist (and I think my Marisol feels the same!) ♥

Happy Knitting!

Halloween is a month away, and there is no better time to start preparing some handmade zero calories candy treats! If you come to this page from the home banner, you will notice that these candy corns have no wings attached. Yes, unfortunately no wings this time… my original wings knitting pattern is coming in the next post. Once they are ready I will share them with you :) In the meantime, please enjoy the free candy corn pattern to get you started!

The easy candy corn knitting pattern is designed by Crafty Alien and you can find it HERE. Crafty Alien has kindly converted their crochet pattern into knitting patterns and you can easily knit these candy corn with straight knitting needles.

Two most hardest skills in the pattern are M1 and SSK. I have previously attached both video tutorials on M1 and SSK in my free pig pattern post. On the other hand, if you are looking for more challenge and wish to knit in the round, I have provided the pattern conversion below.

So after I finished knitting the Tiny Chicken , I thought that hey what could be better to accompany it than a cute egg. Well, instead of a normal round shaped egg, why not a fried one? This is where this cute fried egg knitting pattern comes in. Designed by Ala & Ela, you can download the free pattern HERE.

I don’t remember where I read it from, but apparently someone knitted this very same fried egg pattern in just 12 minutes! I cannot imagine how fast her/his hands has to move to knit it up so quickly! (Well I certainly for one took much longer than that). I found this pattern quite tricky yet very intricate — the egg white uses both M1 and Yo, both are different type of knit increase technique to produce interestingly beautiful pattern to the finished knit work.

I previously cover the M1 knit tutorials in Oink pattern, as for the Yo technique you can find it below. This video has helped me understand the YO technique and I hope this will help you too :)

Pattern modification:

Face embroidery and making up

Which cheek blusher colour do you like better? :)

I modified the yolk knitting pattern slightly. Right after you join, I knit 3 rows instead of  8 rows. Then, when making up, I reverse the side so that the wrong side is on the outside as the shape curls up automatically and created this circular look. After sewing it onto the egg white halfway, I began making the face embroidery. I personally used 6mm black safety eyes, if you want it to be baby safe please embroidery the eyes instead. I constantly debated whether to give it a pink or yellow blush, in the end I go with the yellow one. What do you think? Do you like the pink or yellow better? :)

Happy Knitting! ♥
