Knitting For Beginners
The majority of these patterns are beginner friendly, making them easy for you to follow with step by step instructions.
If you are new to knitting, the patterns use basic stitches like knit and purl, with some increases and decrease to shape.
For any help with the stitches or the abbreviations, take a look at the knitting tutorials.
Baby Knitting Patterns
Included in the pattern roundup are baby knits that are quick to make up.
They can be made in soft yarns and for those of you who don’t like to knit in the round, you will be happy, as they are knit flat and then seamed.
Easter Bunny Patterns
If you want to make a bunny for your little ones, there are three patterns to choose from.
A large floppy bunny made from a mohair boucle yarn, a smaller sized bunny and a modern bunny softie.
All of them are cute and look ready for cuddle time!
You can also make a pair of Easter chick slippers using the loop stitch.
Or knit a bunny ear hat with floppy ears in the round, which is available in baby and toddler sizes.
This hat pattern is a reader favourite and looks great in any colour.
Bunny Ear Headband
The bunny headband is really easy and fast to make, and with a little knitting knowledge, you are good to go!
It can be made in various yarns and there is even a pattern for a nose warmer and bunny whiskers to match.
The nose mitten is really funny, so I am sure it will be a hit if you wear it as part of your bunny costume!
