Crochet Pattern: Lil 'Fluffy Unicorn (Despicable Me) Elie - Ysolda. Yarn 200m / 218 yards sport / double knitting weight yarn.

Elie - Ysolda

I used RYC Cashsoft Baby DK in shade 805. Needles and notions Set of 5 3mm double pointed needles. Small amount of darker yarn for embroidering eyes, for a toy that won’t be played with by babies or young children you could use toy safety eyes. Tapestry needle. Gauge 26 sts and 36 rounds = 10 cm / 4” in stocking stitch. Because size is not crucial to this project the gauge does not need to be matched exactly and the overall size can be changed by changing the yarn weight and needle size. Size Elijah is approximately 26 cm / 10” tall. Version Information elijah.pdf. Page 18 Elefante. The pattern for Elefante is finally here for the taking.

This pattern came to be when a knitter emailed me after spying a tiny striped elephant on a shelf in Itty-Bitty Hats on page 18. She wanted to know where to get the pattern. I had no idea where that elephant came from until a friend (thanks Renee) told me about this . I am sure the original is a crocheted toy from this site and boy oh boy, are the other toys available here ever cute. I decided to make a pattern for a knitted version of this little guy and share it with you here.

Tuto Elephant. Dans la suite de mes cadeaux tricotés pour bébé, j’ai eu envie de tester le tricot d’animaux en peluche et je suis tombée amoureuse du patron Elijah d’Ysolda Teague.

Tuto Elephant

Ce patron est très bien expliqué, très clair, avec beaucoup de photos qui nous permettent de savoir où relever les mailles pour ajouter les bras et jambes au corps de l’éléphant. Voici les différentes étapes de sa construction : On commence l’éléphant par l’arrière de la tête et on termine cette partie par la trompe en ajoutant du fourrage petit à petit. Par contre, j’ai eu quelques difficultés au démarrage pour monter les mailles et commencer la tête car il m’a fallu apprendre la technique du lighter circular cast on afin que le rang de montage ne se voit pas.

Quand la tête est terminée, on relève des mailles sous la trompe pour former le corps. Pour cela, on relève des mailles entre les deux triangles que forment les diminutions de l’extrémité du corps. Aristotle the Octopus. 8 Legs, 2 NeedlesThis pattern was improvised due to a lack of time and patience - all of the other (very cute) octopus patterns I could find required DPNs and knitting in the round, which was a technique I'd yet to master.

Aristotle the Octopus

A very intricate hour was spent learning to knit in the round with what I had to hand, namely DK yarn and 3mm DPNs, when it became obvious that a) this was going to result in a very tiny octopus that b) I'd managed to knit inside out (he was supposed to be stuffed on the needles). Some thinking and researching later, I managed to cobble together a 2 needle version - he's named Aristotle in honour of Pugsley Addams' pet octopus. Despite his shaky start, I hope you'll agree he's rather handsome. Petites histoires créatives: Petits toutous tricotés à la main... ou presque. Comment ne pas aimer les jouets tricotés!

J'en suis folle mais je dois admettre que le tricot n'est pas le loisir que je préfère: pas assez rapide ;-) Alors, je dois fabriquer des trucs simples, des mini-projets! Comme ce petit lapin! Le patron a été pris dans le livre que ma gentille copine Manon m'a prêté : Creative Play for Your Toddler. Il est facile si ce n'est que de tricoter un carré puis de lui donner quelques formes.

It's a wee bit fiddly but lots of fun! What you will need: some left-over scraps of 4ply yarn in pink, black and fur colour (brown/ cream / grey...) a small circle of felt (for the back of the face - to prevent the tiny stitches pulling through), 1 pair of 2.25mm needles and 2 double pointed 2.25mm needles. Modèle du petit lapin - Tricots-Tine. Tumbling Bunnies. Instead of the egg toss, juggle floppy little bunnies this year!

Tumbling Bunnies

These bunnies are tumbly, acrobatic little beanbags to toss into spring baskets for your little, (and not so little), ones. I made them with dk weight cotton, but they’ll work up well in sock and worsted weight also. Gauge is not important for this project, but the knitted fabric should be firm enough so beans won’t be able to be worked out between stitches.

Caution! These toys aren’t suitable for children under the age of 3 because of small parts. Materials: set of 4 double pointed needles in a size 2 sizes smaller than recommended for yarn small amount of yarn scraps (about 30 – 40 yards per bunny) *4-6 mm safety eyes *1/4” pink or red ribbon for nose about ½ cup dried beans tapestry needle 2 cotton balls Place safety eyes one row below needles at either edge of flat surface just to the left of your beginning of round.
