These cheery little bowling skittles help keep little ones occupied in times when it’s not possible to play outdoors. Each skittle is knit in the round from the bottom up using a sturdy, high-twist yarn to give it structure. A square garter-stitch base is knit first, then stitches are picked up around the edges, joined in the round, and the bowling-pin shape of the skittle is made with increases, decreases, and double decreases. I have shares some toy animals free knitting patterns that you can check them out. If you love animal stuffed toys with your needles, and yarn, you can make these cuddly toys, especially for Spring gift delivery. French knots form the eyes and mouth and an I-cord loop at the top of the head makes it easy for little hands to pick up the skittles after they’ve toppled.
