These Knitting Patterns Look Good Enough to Eat!

Knitted Food

Whether you’re using these cuties for toys or decoration, this knitted food will brighten up any kitchen or play area.

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.
