These Knitting Patterns Look Good Enough to Eat!

Actions

There's a wide world of amigurumi out there. So why do those cute little amigurumi animals always seem to steal the spotlight from other types of amigurumi, like knitted food?

Sure, kiddos can use knitted food as a toy, but the cute plush toys are not just for playtime. These projects can be anything from a magnet on your fridge to a key chain, ornament, pendant or kitchen decor. They make fun gifts for friends, too!

These knitted food patterns include all your favorite food groups, from veggies to fruits. We even included everyone's favorite food group: desserts!

2. Farmer's Market

Knit these up and arrange them in a bowl as a centerpiece or kitchen decor. Have little ones around? They can use these veggies to pretend they're at the farmer's market. All the vegetables are knit flat and seamed, but experienced knitters could easily translate this pattern to knitting in the round.

3. Knitted Fruit

You already have your veggies; now balance it out with fruits. Grab your fruitiest scrap pieces of yarn to knit up these fun foods. Like most amigurumi, gauge isn't important; what's important is that you knit a gauge tight enough that the stuffing isn't visible.

5. Don't Eat Your Veggies Amigurumi Toys

These aren't the kind of veggies you'll find in the garden or at the farmer's market! The face is totally up to you. You can model yours after the veggies seen here, or improvise and create something totally different. After all, who says veggies have to be happy?

6. Little Pineapple

If you don't plan to use this pineapple as a toy, the designer offers plenty more options from a key chain to a pendant. If you're using scrap yarn, don't feel pressured to find the perfect hue. A wild pink pineapple would look just as happy as a yellow or orange one.

This knitted food does double duty for playtime and for tea time. Be sure to use a wool that isn't superwash, since you'll be felting these after you knit them. Never felted before? Find out what felting is and how it works .
