Hands up, who’d like to knit a cuddly, colourful parrot? I’ve just added the pattern for this cute pair to my Etsy shop and Ravelry. They are nice, easy knit, flat on a pair of 4mm knitting needles. I used Stylecraft Special DK but you can use the DK yarn of your choice – they are a very colourful way to do a bit of stash busting!
Spring is in the air and it’s the time of year that I love knitting little nests and eggs – they make lovely spring decorations for your home, or you can substitute the knitted eggs for chocolate ones, and you have the perfect Easter treat!
If you’d like to knit a nest and eggs, the pattern is in my book Knitted Birds, published by Search Press. There may also be a nest or two in my Etsy shop if they haven’t flown off to a new home already (not that nests can fly, but you know what I mean).
My knitting pattern for these little knitted chickens are in the April issue of Let’s Knit magazine! They are a super quick and easy knit and are a great way of using up any scraps of DK yarn that you have in your stash. They’re the right size to hide a Creme Egg inside, so will make a really sweet little Easter gift for a special someone (or you can use them to hide your Creme Eggs so no-one else will pinch them!)
Meet Neil and Stanley, the knitted guinea pigs! If you’d like to make them, my knitting pattern is in the February issue of Let’s Knit magazine. They are nice and easy to make, they are knitted flat on 4mm needles and you can use your favourite DK yarn to make them.
