Knit toy patterns (amigurumi)
I'm looking for knit toy patterns and Knit amigurumi patterns most are crochet, I would like to knit them for my first grandchild (yahoo) Can anyone help me out would really appreciate it. Would love to find one for a panda since my daughter used to carry one with her all the time when she was a baby and would love to be a able to knit one for her to give to her baby. She would be so surprised! Thanks

I don't have a clue what amigurumi is, but I found a few free ones.

There are actually more so if you have something specific in mind we can help better.

Just toys...

Oh yeah..the panda...I found a few really cute ones, but they are in books so you might check your library.

Oh sorry! For some reason I thought you could crochet.

The link I gave last for Knitting Pattern Central has tons of toys, and the ones from Knitty are also knitted, plus I gave the links to a few books of knitted toys. If you don't want to buy them you can get them from your library system.

I happened to click on the links while my 3 year old son was in here. He said to me, in his Furbie language, "Uh huh. I need that. Knit one for me."

I have to say I am impressed that he recognized it was a knitted thing. He's really into my knitting. And he asks me every day when I'm going to give him his Monster Hat.
