Some of my most loved toys when I was a girl were my toys that my mom had made or ones that other relatives had fashioned. While not all of them were knitted, they were all loved very much. My grandfather made me a couple of baby cribs out of wood that were amazing and lasted through years of play. There is something that store-bought toys cannot duplicate anymore and that is amazing quality, and since so much love goes into them, they last for years and years and even generations. My daughter was able to play with those toys, too. Here are 10 free knit toy patterns to start creating your own memories.
