So, recently I’ve gotten addicted to knitting cute toys that have daily uses as well as being cute. This is why I’ve turned this free strawberry knitting patterns into a keychain. I’ve done few different versions of the strawberry finishes — with and without the face, with and without the yellow seeds. Which do you prefer? Leave your comments below!

I like how the size of the knitted strawberry is similar to a life sized one. As for the knitting patterns, I have put it down as intermediate instead of easy. This is because the stem is a little tricky! But don’t worry, I will include a video tutorial on how to knit the stem so you will have no trouble knitting them.

For the keyring, I’ve purchased mine from eBay. Must say I am very happy with the quality of the items for the price. For 12x Lobster Clasps and matching Split Rings, it only cost $2.99 AUD (includes free shipping too!). The items are shipped from China, so it may take a while but it’s worth the wait.

Cut yarn. thread through each remaining loop with tapestry needle. If you are embroidering the face, don’t close up the body yet. Do all embroidery now (face & seeds). Stuffed the body with fillings of your choice. Once finished, pull yarn tight to close up the hole and secure.

Green Stem:
Starting from the top, with DPN and Green, CO 4 sts. Leave approx. 80cm tail as you will need it for making up the keychain loop later. Being careful not to twist.

Round 1: K
Round 2: Kfb x 4 times (8 sts total)
Round 3: K
Round 4: *K2, M1* x 4 times (12 sts total)
Round 5: K
Round 6; *K2, M1* x 6 times (18 sts total)

Shaping the leaves:
You will now work on each leaves one by one. You now should have 18 sts total in your needles. For every 3 sts you are going to make 1 leaf. (6 leaves total)
Step 1: K3, turn your needle around
Step 2: P3, turn your needle around
Step 3: K1, K2tog, turn your needle around
Step 4: P2,  turn your needle around
Step 5: K2tog



Now you will notice you have reached the peak of your leaf. All is well, except the working yarn is too far separated from your next live stitch. What you want to do next is to pick up 4 stitches on the left edge of your leaf so you can slowly bring that working yarn down next to your live stitch.

Once you finished picking up 4 stitches on the edge and bringing that working yarn down, you want to join that stitch to the first remaining stitch. To do this, you slip the next stitch purlwise, then you pass the stitch that you have bring down earlier to this slipped stitch. Yay, you have just knitted the first leaf!

To do all the next leaves, the steps are exactly the same except for Step 1.

Consequent leaves: Strawberry Keychain Keyring cute knitting patterns
Step 1: K2, turn your needle around
Step 2-5: same as above.

Repeat above process until you have total of 6 leaves. Then, cut yarn and seam.

Keychain loop:
To make the keychain loop, you want to CO 10 with the long cast on tail earlier.
BO

Use tapestry needle to create a loop and secure the remaining yarn together.

Attach stem to the top of body with green thread. Use a thread instead of yarn as you want the join to be invisible when finished. Insert the split ring to the loop and you are done!

“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!

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.
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!

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!

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!

The mouse is super adorable and also easy to make. For my mouse, I’ve added yellow whiskers embroidery using fine sewing thread. I’ve also knitted his arms slightly longer as I have a big plan coming up for him in the upcoming Halloween! sshhhh… I can’t tell you what it is yet as I want it to be a suprise! :)

As for the trickiest knitting techniques in the pattern, I have covered below two video tutorials on (Sl1, K2tog, Psso) & knitting i-Cord. If you don’t know what Kfb is, you can check out the video on my tiny chicken post.

cute devil free wing knitting pattern
Halloween is approaching fast …! Hence, I present to you the supercharged Candy Corn with Angel & Devil wings! Everyone has that nice and naughty side to them and this knitted candy corn perfectly accommodates both sides (Yes, I made my candy corn double sided — one side with that oh-so-cute- angelic smile and on the opposite side, a cheeky one-loop-sided smile). You can see both wings overlapping a little since they are sewn back to back.

There are lots of options you can do, instead of having the candy corn double sided, you may wish to knit two separate ones (one with the angel wings and another with the devil one). You can even use this wings pattern on your other knitting projects (If you do, please check that the sizes will match your existing projects). Or, you may decided that you don’t like wings after all.. It’s all up to you :)

Please note that the pattern below is for the wings only, you can find the candy corn pattern here.

Cut yarn, leaving approx 12cm tail. With tapestry needle, insert needle through loop of each stitch and pull tight. Sew this end to the body and secure. Weave in the cast on stitch so everything looks neat.

I have also attached a video tutorial for the wings. For anyone who doesn’t know how to read the pattern or simply wanting to knit one together, you can watch the video :) The video is at moderate speed, so if you want to learn certain techniques within the video just let me know and I will make a slow version of the technique for you.

It took a long time to create this video, I really hope that it can be helpful to someone ♥ Remember, if you do make these wings, I would love it if you can share them with me by either sending me the photos via email / tag me on Facebook / upload them in my Ravelry
