I am excited that the pattern rights to the Wee Ones Seamless Knit Toys has reverted back to me so I can sell the individual pattern in my Ravelry shop now! The pattern for Wee Ones was a special project I designed for Craftsy.com for an online class through their fantastic website. The class is still available and it is a really fun way to take a knitting class at your own convenience and right at home.
I am so proud of these adorable little characters. These toys are completely seamless so that when you are done with the knitting, you are basically done with the toy. One of the main concerns people have about knitting toys is that they can be fiddly and they can have tiny parts to stitch together. I came up with a solution for these concerns by creating the Wee Ones pattern!
The pattern includes the seamless top-down pattern for an elephant....
and a hippo!
There is fun technique involved along the way, too. You get to start at the head, pick up and knit the body on and when you finish the toes you are done! You just need to add a tail and make a few stitches for the face! It is a really fun and quick process. You will be hooked!
The toys use worsted weight yarn on US size 6 needles at a gauge of 5.5 stitches per inch in stockinette stitch. These toys are the perfect project to use up leftover yarn from other projects or that single skein you have sitting in your stash.
The pattern includes the instructions for all three animals in detail and progress photographs. TC absolutely loves these little animals. They are a really great size. The elephant is about 8 inches when seated to the top of the ears.
While I was in Denver filming the online classes for Craftsy.com I whipped up a cute top-down sweater that fits the toys. The sweater pattern is included along with the toy pattern. It is cute and fun and again, it is the perfect stash-busting project!
So you get three animals and a cute sweater that fits the characters, all in this one pattern! The pattern is available in my Ravelry pattern shop for $7.00.

Take care, Knitters. I'll be back soon with some progress shots on my current projects.
