These free knit patterns look good enough to eat!

Are you looking for a fun gift to give your toddler for their next birthday? Or are you trying out a new diet and just can’t stop thinking about cakes and frosting? Perhaps you’re becoming bored with the same old scarf and hat knits and just want to try something new. It sounds like you could use a couple of food-inspired knit patterns to save your day.

Instead of those hollow, plastic bananas that come with your kids’ play kitchens, you can knit them a tray of delicious knitted cupcakes for them to pull out of the oven! These knit food patterns are super soft and sturdy, so you don’t have to worry about someone knocking their eye out if there’s an impromptu food fight.

Take a little mental break from staring longingly at pie recipes you’re no longer allowed to enjoy on your new diet. Turn on some mindless TV and keep your hands and your stomach busy knitting up some interesting knit pincushion patterns or knit pillow patterns! After all, a knit slice of pie is zero calories and a few hours of fun.

Channel your love of food into your crafting with these 20 Delicious-Looking Food Knits!

These food knits are so adorable! I love the idea of knitting a few of these options for my nephews to use in their play kitchen.
