I was halfway knitting my Christmas snowman and suddenly mom told me she wanted to learn knitting! So putting the snowman aside, I design this scarf for her. Scarf is the easiest to knit as you don’t need to join any parts together. You can knit a really simple scarf only knowing 3 skills, CO (cast on), knit and BO (bind off). But having said this, mom wanted a pretty scarf so I design something a little more complicated but still relatively easy for her to start as her first project.

The scarf has lace borders, but not too feminine so a guy could also wear it. It’s easy to knit and will be suitable for beginners. Plus, I will also include video tutorials below so anyone can follow with ease :) We use 2 balls of yarn (50g each), so if you have 100g balls then you only need 1 ball.

Difficulty Level:
Very Easy Difficulty

Finishing:
I leave approx 1.2meter of yarn then I start the finishing. You may want to measure your remaining yarn as we all have different tension.

To finish, you need to start on the right side of the fabric (the odd rows). This means you have just finished doing your Purl rows.

Cut any remaining yarn you have left over and weave in ends. The lace border tends to curl up, so block the materials after it’s finished to get a nice flat surface.

Tadaa! you have finished. Happy knitting!

I know making a clutch handbag is not something I usually do, but I want to give Mom a present. This purse is very easy to make as it uses basic knitting techniques (knit & purl). I actually find I spent most of my time sewing the parts together at the end. It’s quite a long process when making up, I didn’t expect it to be honest, but I am so happy that it’s all done!

I love knitting with Cleckheaton Perfect Day 8 ply, must admit I just fell in love with the yarns when I first set my eyes on them. The texture feels really nice to the touch and the colours are just fabulous! I used two different needles size as I don’t have Double Pointed Needles at 4mm size (well, just have to make do with what we have the best we can! ;) )

Making up Step-by-Step: (*Important* Before you join the pieces together, block all knitted materials. To block, simply spray lightly with cold water and block materials into shape and pin them to a towel and leave them to dry.)

Knitted purse after blocking

After blocking, the materials will lay straight making it much easier to seam

  1. Once dry, weave the top decoration leftover yarn.
  2. Sew button to the top decoration (use regular colour thread)
  3. Stitch the top decoration to the main body. Use running back stitch. (use metallic gold thread)
  4. Cut lining fabric, match the width to the main body, but add 1.2cm to the length to allow for the zipper.
  5. Cut fabric lining

    Cut fabric lining, increase the length slightly to allow for zipper.

  6. Overlock the edges of the fabric lining so the materials doesn’t fray. (Use sewing machine if you know how to) (use regular colour thread)
  7. Sew the zipper to the fabric lining. Use running back stitch. (Use sewing machine if you know how to) (use regular colour thread)
  8. Sew the fabric lining to main body. Use running back stitch. Being careful when stitching so the threads doesn’t show in the inside lining as you want your stitches to be invisible. (use metallic gold thread)
  9. Clutch Handbag, join the fabric lining to the main body

  10. Sew the sides of fabric lining shut. Use running back stitch. (use regular colour thread)
  11. Sew the fabric lining shut using running back stitch

  12. Sew the sides of main body shut, careful not to sew the lining together. Use running back stitch. (use metallic gold thread)
  13. Sew main body shut, care not to sew the fabric lining

  14. Knit i-Cord, then make a loop to the side of the bag, secure.

Note: For all regular thread, I use 2 strands. For all metallic thread I use 4 strands.

“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.

*Important* Please note that due to it’s tiny size, this is not a toy for small babies under 3yo due to potential chocking hazards.

Round 16: *K2, K2tog* (9 sts total)
Round 17: K
Round 18: *K1, K2tog* 6 sts total) Stuffed body a bit more now so everything is tight.

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.

How to Knit a Scarf: Easy Basic Beginner Tutorials

AmareeLis How to Knit Video Tutorials, Knitting Tips Leave a comment   easy knitting patterns, free knitting patterns, knitting tips, learn how to knit tutorials, straight needles, very easy knitting patterns
It’s been a while since I post beginner tips on the site. I have three knitting projects ongoing that I really want to share next, but they are not finished yet.

Well, actually two are finished but I still haven’t got a chance to organise the information together! One is going to be a really massive post (heck, it’s the biggest post I’ve ever done so I really need to buy some time). How I wish I can stop time…

Well, since I can’t, I thought posting these videos might be useful for anyone who wish to learn how to knit :) (and hopefully.. just hopefully it can keep you all entertained while I am finishing up my next knitting patterns post).

Well if that’s not working, I just hope reading this post will at least put a smile on your face.

Knitted Mouse holding a flower, how to knit

So for now, I am going to attach two basic beginner tutorial videos, which happens to be the most fundamental skills in knitting. I posted a how to tie a slip knot tutorials a while back and with all these three knowledge, you pretty much ready to start your first knitting project. All you need is a ball of yarn and a pair of straight knitting needles (use large straight needles for a starter as it will be easier to see what you are doing), so what are you waiting for? Let’s get started! ;)

Tutorials: How to Backwards Loop Cast on in Knitting (Single Cast On)

Now, there are a lot of different ways you can cast on, but this is the easiest and fastest way ever. You will be using one needle and one hand to do the casting (instead of two needles), so it’s perfect for beginners. They say pictures speak a thousand words so let me just show you the video:

Tutorials: How to Knit


After you successfully tie a slip knot and cast on, it’s time to begin knitting (wohoo here comes the fun part)! So what do you do from here?

How to Knit a Basic Beginner Scarf:

To knit a basic beginner scarf, first you cast on as many stitches you want. This will be the width of your scarf. Then, all you have to do is knit until the end of the row.

Well how do you when you have reach the end? Easy, it’s when all your stitches have been transferred from your left needles to the right needles.

Finished Knitting a Row, All stitches are on Right Hand Needle

This is what it looks like when you have finished knitting a whole row. All stitches are on your right hand needle.

So when there is no more stitch remaining on your left needle, simply hold your right needles (the one with all the stitches) on your left hand, grab your other needle and begin knitting again!

Hold the needle with all the stitches on your left hand to begin knitting again

Hold the needle with all the stitches on your left hand to begin knitting again

How easy was that?

This is what it looks like when you have knitted a few more rows

This is what it looks like when you have knitted a few more rows. I have only cast on 7 as a quick example. But if you are making a scarf, do cast on a lot more to increase the width of the scarf. Simply keep knitting to increase the length of the scarf.

I hope this tutorials help you a little bit more. Welcome to knitting!

To get you started, I have put together knitting needles and yarns that you may like to help you for your first project (choose size 9-11 needles for the bulky yarn):

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!

Pirate pig Oink! cute free knitting patternsAhoy! Here comes Free Accessories time! I was inspired to knit some cute sunglasses for the recently finished Sweet Carrot & Cool Carrot. But once they are done, my little boy started playing and put them on my other finished knitted projects — and the best part is that they work with other toys too! Also, if you make just half of the black sunglasses, it will become a pirate eye patch (yes they are really versatile!). I leave a long tail for the ends so I can just tie it up around the toys, but if you want it permanent, you can sew them on the sides of the face.

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.

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!

Tiny Witch Hat free knitting pattern Skills Required:

DPN: Double Pointed Needles
K: Knit
K2tog: Knit 2 stitches as 1 together

Finished Size: approx 3.2cm tall x 2.5cm diameter at largest outer brim (the actual hole of the hat is to fit head 0.9cm diameter) (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 witch hat is not suitable for children under 3yo.

Needles: US 0 – 2.0 mm

Yarn:
Hat — Panda Cotton Blend 8ply in 2 Black (dye lot #10613)

Special Features:
Scraps of orange yarn to make butterfly bow.

Still in Halloween spirit, I decided to do a witch hat pattern for my recently completed knitted tiny candy corn (though later on I put the hat on my knitted mouse too!). The pattern is easy and quick to make. The whole hat is knitted in the round starting from the brim and there is no joining required. Where you purl, the brim of the hat will naturally fold. I started doing a video tutorial, but then I realised that it’s very hard to see the knitting process as the needles are very small and don’t capture well on camera. Hopefully they are straight forward enough, but if you do need any help don’t hesitate to ask. :)

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!
