Free Toy Knitting Patterns

Toy knitting patterns are lots of fun and well received gifts. Knitting patterns use UK terms as we are a UK arts and crafts website. Change up the colours as you knit and make them in festive red and gold for Christmas or yellows and oranges for Easter. All instructions come with pictures on how to make and assemble. There are details of the materials you will need and suggest knitting needles too. Don’t worry if you don’t have exactly everything, just use what you have spare in your knitting stash and it will keep your needles busy.

Knitting patterns are great when they are free to save and keep. Scroll down this page for a collection of the patterns available from Knitting by Post for you to enjoy. No sign-ups needed, just click on the one you like the look of and start knitting.

You may knit for charity or knit for fun, either way you can start now. If you are a beginner knitter, these are great patterns to practice with as they are small knits and they will be made in a flash. If you are more advanced then here are some ideas for you to develop and add your own personal touch to.

All are created with double knitting yarn and 3mm single pointed needles. This means they are all knitted flat. A great way to use up the scraps of yarn that you have lying around or knit some of your stash. You can use any knitting needles or yarn that you have, no need to buy more (unless you want to of course!)

You will see from our universally simple knitting style that all patterns from Knitting by Post can be understood and are easy to make. Use up the scraps from your stash, these free patterns are great for beginners too.

The patterns are easy to read and simple to use directly from your computer or smartphone. Bookmark the pages on your device and you can come back again and again to knit these little easy gifts over and over again.

We have three different kinds of rainbow pattern as well as animal soft toys. Christmas, Easter and baby themed patterns are here too for you to enjoy completely free. Make a washcloth or a heart to gift to a loved one, it is your choice.

You can make beautiful homemade gifts for your loved ones. Kids will love the knitted toys that you craft and grown ups will love the decorations you lovingly craft. Make keepsakes for new babies and gifts for mum too. Knit for charity or to sell or for family and friends.

FREE Knitting for Wellbeing

Knitting can give you a big sense of achievement when you create something new from the yarn and knitting needles. This page has lots of little free items for you to make and get that satisfaction quickly. Knitting gives confidence and improves self worth too.
Knitting has positive benefits for many people, including relaxation and lowering blood pressure. A knitted project can help you to recover from injury or illness, pass the time in a relaxing way.

All of these knitting patterns are short projects that you can make in a weekend or a few days. Pick the project that suits your abiltiy and enjoy toy making. Knitted pieces are small and are not heavy like a wolly pully or a blanket would be to knit so knitting in the summer is cool!

We have all kinds of FREE kntting patterns from a knitted wash cloth to a knitted chocolate teapot – great for those with a sense of humour. If you like dogs and cats and mice we have them too. Keep coming back to look for new patterns from our brilliant design team.
