Skill Level:

small skill level requirement Beginner

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knititng in the round, i-cord, increasing, decreasing

Pattern Description:

Tiny little monsters who might do your bidding if you feed them (hint: they like peanut butter toast crumbs and limburger cheese). They’re great to hang on a Christmas tree, hide in a stocking or carry around in your purse for company. Just be careful with your fingers – they bite.

This pattern contains two different options for your Minion’s head – with and without ears – as well as the instructions for a pointy hat, a toque, and a pair of pants for your Minion.
Minions and their clothes are knit in the round, so the only sewing is attaching appendages/clothing.

A Minion body with arms and legs requires about 10 grams of yarn. Hats and pants need 5 grams or less.

This pattern includes seven pages of instructions for knitting your Minions, complete with full-color photographic illustrations. Additional technical support is also available through e-mail consultation.



Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • They are small!


  • 10 gr of sock yarn for body, less for clothing, 2.25mm double pointed needles

You Will Also Need:

  • stuffing, safety eyes, darning needle

I love making stuff - knitting, weaving, sewing (well, sometimes), jewellery, cooking, glitter and glue, it's all fun.
I love writing instructions - much more than I like following them.
I love it when the Muse is present, I just wish she didn't think that 3:00 a.m. was such a great time.
I really love it when someone says "Oh, I like that where did you get it?" HA! You know the answer!
