PINCUSHION PALS KNITTING PATTERNS

Each of these little animals are quick to knit little mascots, or could be used as pincushions. With this pattern you can knit 4 animals: cat, dog, mouse and owl.

ABOUT THE PATTERN: The pattern has row numbers for each step so you don’t lose your place, instructions for making each animal, a list of abbreviations and a materials list. The pattern is 3 pages and written in English.

TECHNIQUES: All use the same body and head pattern, and use only simple increases and decreases. All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles. I made a single crochet chain as a collar to decorate my animals, but if you don’t crochet you could tie a length of yarn or ribbon around the neck instead.

YOU WILL NEED:

  • A pair of straight 5.5mm knitting needles (US 9)
  • Aran weight (worsted, 10 ply) acrylic yarn; less than 25g in each colour
  • Toy filling
  • Black yarn to embroider the features
