SPIDEY TOY KNITTING PATTERNS
Eeek! There is a spider in the bath!
This knitted spider also makes a super Halloween decoration.
TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat (back and forth) on a pair of straight knitting needles, apart from the legs which are i-cord pieces knitted on two DPNs. You will need to cast on, knit, purl, increase and decrease, knit i-cord, and sew a seam.
To make my spider with bendy legs I used pipe cleaners (chenille stems) that were inserted into the i-cord legs, but you could make a spider with dangly legs instead if you don’t have any pipe cleaners in your craft box.
If you do use pipe cleaners, as the ends can be sharp the spider would not be suitable for babies or young children.
FINISHED SIZE: The spider is approximately 12cm tall and 13cm wide (when standing with the legs bent).
