Free patterns: knitted vegetables

Free pattern: knit your own vegetables!

12th August 2013

Get your five-a-day the easy way with our fun knitted vegetables! With Louise Butt's free patterns you can choose from a carrot, beetroot, sweetcorn and aubergine.

We think they'd be perfect for Harvest Festival this autumn - and to keep the kids entertained over the school holidays. Remember if you're giving them to younger kids it's better to embroider the eyes on instead of attaching googly eyes. 

And best of all, you can download the patterns free – just click the link below.
