TEENY WHALE TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
This teeny blue whale is quick to knit and uses only small amounts of yarn, a perfect project to use up any odds and ends of yarn. If you don’t have any toy filling in your stash, you could even use a few cotton wool balls to stuff your little whale.
THE PATTERN INCLUDES: Row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making the whale, a list of abbreviations and explanation of some techniques, a materials list and recommended yarns. The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.
TECHNIQUES: The whale is knitted in one piece and knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, increase (kfb) and decrease (k2tog and p2tog), and sew a seam. The pattern also incorporates intarsia colour-work and a three needle bind off.
YARN, NEEDLES & NOTIONS INCLUDE:
- A pair of straight 3.75mm knitting needles (US 5)
- A third 3.75mm straight needle to work a three needle bind off.
- Double knitting yarn (DK or light worsted weight) in white and blue
- A small amount of toy filling (or cotton wool balls) to stuff
- Beads and black yarn (or embroidery thread) to decorate
