Free Knitting Patterns for Toys

If you want to do some good in the world, these free toy knitting patterns for charity are an easy and fun way to get started. The best part about the knitted style of toy is how versatile and unique it is. You can be sure that, when you're giving away your handknit toy, there won't be another one like it. You can check out any home-decor store with a kid's room section or any baby registry and you'll see tons of manufactured knit toys.

Who wouldn't like them though? They're soft, made to last year after year, and they have that classic hand-me-down look that'll be appreciated generations down the line. Of course, these free toy knitting patterns for charity are much more technically complicated than a washcloth or a scarf. It takes skill, patience, and love to make, but that is precisely why these toys are appreciated so much!

These free toy knitting patterns for charity are divided by gender in case you're donating to a specific person or group, however, this list is most certainly not restrictive. The little girls might really like the alligators and the little boys might want a tray of cupcakes to play house with! The point of these easy toy knitting patterns is to make someone happy, and to give your needles something new to try! So what are you waiting for?
