Introducing my Cucumber knitting pattern. This cucumber is knitted in one piece using knits and purls to make the ribbed fabric. Botanically cucumbers are a fruit, but they are usually considered a vegetable in cookery. Knitted veggies are super toys to encourage little ones to eat veg and greens, or you can use them as decorative items in your home. My veggies are worked flat, but most pieces could easily be converted to knitting in the round if that is your preference. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew a seam.
- The pattern is 2 pages and written in English.
- Instructions for making the cucumber.
- Measurements are metric.
Materials you need at home:
- A pair of straight 2.75mm knitting needles (US 2)
- DK yarn (double knitting or light worsted weight)
- A few handfuls of toy filling
- Toy safety eyes
