If you're on Ravelry, you can find many wedding patterns there. Do you want a present for a wedding, such as afghan or a throw or a wedding apparel ,like these garters? There are many shawls and even knitted and crocheted dresses!

I'm assuming by favors you mean the little gifts you give all the guests? I'm not finding anything that is traditionally considered a party favor that is knitted.. Hmm....

Bride and groom finger puppets maybe? A cute endangered animal one that maybe the couple support? Here's a basic finger puppet pattern or two..

Bookmarks that have hearts or are embroidered with the couples names and date of wedding? (use lace weight so they are thin!)

Knitted corsage?

Are you looking for crochet or knit? I'd suspect there are more available in crochet.

I wouldn't classify that as a favor which is what you asked for. Always be as specific as possible when asking for help because it helps us help you.

I found some ring bearer pillows in these two books. Your library might have them if you don't want to buy. You could also just make a pillow with a lace top and sew a ribbon on it.

Well, since you don't want crochet or wedding favors this may not be of interest, but I just got my Lion Brand newsletter and it's got several crocheted wedding favors. Talk about timely! Anyhoo, check their site, they may have knitted ones as well if you decide you want to do them, too.

Talk about timing...lol...I just got an e-mail from Lion Brand in regards to handmade wedding favors...However, the patterns they gave were crochet patterns...But, you may be able to adjust them to knitting
