This cute little bunny is so cuddly – your kids or grandkids (and you!) will love it! Designed by Claire Garland and featuring over at From Britain with Love, it’s simple to make in various yarns.


This rose fairy doll by Patons is so, so cute, and the pattern is yours for free over at Deramores. Get the free pattern here. (Note, the pattern is archived and sometimes takes a few seconds before it comes onto the screen.)

Pretty Camille, the knitted teddy, is a charming delight with her stripy frame and pink heart. Find the free pattern over at Hobbii.

Pax the alpaca is particularly fond of hugs so it’s just as well he is totally huggable! Check out the free pattern from Love Crafts.

This “fierce little dragon” by Lucy Ravenscar can be knitted in any colour according to your child’s preference. We rather like purple, but a burnt orange or lime green might also look fab. Get the free pattern here.


Is this the coolest (and most ethical and cruelty free) animal head ever, or what? This knitted deer by Claire Garland features over at Ravelry. You need to sign up to get onto Ravelry, but it’s free to do so. Get the free pattern here.

Isn’t she cute? This is Columbine; she is 30cm (12 inches) tall and knitted in light worsted yarn. And she has gorgeous painted eyes. This is a Fiona McDonald pattern. Get the free pattern here.
