5 FREE Easter toy patterns
Easter is less than a month away, but there’s still time to knit these fabulous Easter toys to celebrate the return of the warm weather!
We absolutely adore these Easter eggs! The pattern includes instructions to knit or crochet these eggs that will last for years. These eggs feature Universal Yarns Cotton Supreme; we recommend Hot Pink (512), Yellow (520), Daiquiri (622), Aqua (516), and Lavender (606), as seen here.
For extra spring-y goodness, you could also use Universal Yarns Cotton Supreme Batik, gorgeously variegated to produce fabulous patterns. This yarn is particularly suited to small housewares and toys, just like these eggs! We love Watermelon Patch (027), Cotton Candy (034), and Mint Flower (037).
This handsome fellow is fluffy and perfect for snuggling. He is knitted flat and seamed up using the mattress stitch. (Psssst! Don’t forget the toy stuffing!) Erik features MillaMia Naturally Soft Merino – you’ll need 2 balls of Putty Grey (121) and one ball each of Snow (124) and Daisy Yellow (142), as seen here.
These three little chicks are perfect little toys, but can also double as celebratory spring home decor! These little chicks are knit flat and seamed up and filled with plastic beans or popcorn kernels to give them some weight. To create Esther, Ernie, and Enid, you’ll need one ball each of Rowan Baby Merino Silk DK yarn in Sunshine (688), Zinc (681), Lake (696), and Candy (695), as seen here.
This cute little ducky certainly fits the bill – why don’t you take a quack at it? It’s knitted flat in two pieces, body and head, and seamed together. Don’t let the fickle weather of spring get your goose – knit this duck instead, using Robin DK yarn in Acid Yellow (060), Jaffa (163), and Brown (079), as seen here!
Edmund is adorable and desperate to find himself in someone’s Easter basket! He’s knitted in pieces: body, head, arms, and feet, and seamed up, stuffed with toy stuffing and plastic beads. For this little fellow, you’ll need one ball of Rowan Purelife Revive in Pumice (461), Basalt (462), or Granite (464), as seen here!
