Description

DINKY BUGS TOY KNITTING PATTERNS

Some happy bugs! These little bugs are fun toys, and quick to knit. This knitting pattern includes the instructions to make a dinky bee, ladybird and dragonfly.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the antennae and bee sting which are i-cord pieces knitted on two double pointed needles (DPNs). You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, knit stripes (i.e. change colour at the end of a row), work increases and decreases, sew seams and knit i-cord. The eyes are knitted bobbles, and instructions on how to knit a bobble are included in the pattern.

FINISHED SIZE: The bee and ladybird are approximately 12cm tall, and the dragonfly is 15cm tall (including the antennae).
