These little animals are quick to knit, and are a super way to use up odds and ends in your yarn stash. They would make super little toys, or could be added to keychains, brooches, pendants, or even wear them as rings. This knitting pattern includes instructions to make six teeny animals, including: Mini Mouse, Teeny Turtle, Junior Hedgehog, Wee Robin, Bitsy Bee and Little Ladybug.

TECHNIQUES: All pieces are knitted flat on straight knitting needles, apart from the mouse tail which is i-cord worked on two DPNs. You will need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.

FINISHED SIZE: The teeny toys are approximately 3 x 3 cm.
