We’re on a woodland kick, and no woodland obsession would be complete without a few adorable knitted foxes, raccoons and bears. Read on for some adorable animal knitting patterns!
Gift a cuddly woodland accessory to a little one, or create your very own woodland scene using patterns for stuffed critters and forest findings.
Check out some of our Craftsy designer’s favorite woodland creatures to knit, from the sneaky raccoon to the sweet little bear.

Mushroom Toy or Pincushion
The woods are full of more than just animals. Don’t forget about the mushrooms! These little guys can be used to fill your woodland animal menagerie, but they can also be used for more practical purposes like pincushions.

These cute mittens are part of a Woodland Collection, so you can mix and match them all depending on kids’ favorite animals. The pattern requires a bit of shaping, plus picking up stitches and changing colors.

Need some embellishments for your woodland scene? This FREE acorn pattern was designed as a pincushion, but it could also team up with amigurumi to add even more of a forest feel to your woodland scene.

The poor deer is often in the shadow of the trendy fox, but not for long. These fingerless gloves feature the deer front and center. You’ll get to do a bit of fun embroidery to finish up the project (check out those French knot facial features!) and you’ll get plenty of practice with stranded colorwork.
