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.

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!

So yesterday I was having the urge to suddenly knit something. I haven’t knit for a few days since I was crazily busy getting this blog up and running, but now I thought it’s a good time to get back to knitting again.

I always research what I wanted to knit and usually it takes forever (searching for patterns online and comparing them from one another, searching for actual images for colour inspiration, yarn selection process, all takes ages to do!). So after deciding I want to knit a Panda hat, I just found out that I don’t have suitable black yarn at home. Since it was just after midnight, I had no choice but to choose something else to knit. That’s where this extra tiny chickens came in. This tiny chickens pattern is designed by Anna Hrachovec, and you can find it HERE.

This tiny chickens were quite challenging to make, aside from knowing how to use DPN I also needed to learn some new skills. The first is Kfb (Knitting in the front and back). Kfb, just like M1 is another technique of adding an extra stitch to your needle. The way is slightly different and I personally find it a little easier as you don’t need to second guess where the in between stitches are like in M1.

Tutorials: How to Knit increases: Kfb

The next one is learning how to pick up stitches. This technique is used in creating the comb and wings for the chicken. It’s a nifty way of joining the knitting together which takes less time than creating the parts separately and then joining it together at the end. What you have to do is essentially locate the “V” shape of your stitches and insert your needle to begin knitting again. I had trouble picking up the stitches as my yarn kept slipping off, so I used a crochet needle to pick them up (it was much easier!). When you get up to knitting the wings, you will notice that the pattern has a mistake in it. Anna has corrected the mistake in her blog HERE

Tutorials: How to pick up stitches in Knitting

Last but not least is learning how to knit an I-Cord. This was my favourite tutorials, she explains I-Cord and make it sounds so simple. Also in this video she teaches you how to do CO (Cast on) using your hand instead of needles. This technique is a big time saver as you can cast on much faster with hand therefore it’s much easier to count your stitches as you cast. To knit I-Cord, the main point is that you should never turn around your needles and instead slide off your work to the other side, then you knit again.

Tutorials: How to knit I-Cord & How to do Hand (CO) Cast On

While I was knitting my tiny chicken, I notice that the wings were a little short. If I knit another one I would knit extra rows to make them slightly longer. The hardest part I found were actually inserting the legs inside the body. I love to stuffed my toys really tight (which explains why my chicken looks plump ;) ), and it was really difficult to pull through the i-cord along the fiberfill. But finally after I push and push.. it went in successfully. One side of the i-cord looks really strained after the force-pulling (Ooops), but luckily I found the legs looks too long anyway so I just undo some of the stitches to make them look cute and even.

Tiny Chicken fit in the palm of your hand

Now that it’s all done, my tiny chicken somewhat looks a little lonely by itself. Maybe if you can knit one too, be sure to post / tag it to the Facebook page and share it with us!
