You’ve got to grab your copy of this adorable stuffed pencil and crayon knitting pattern and knit them up for back to school time or for your favorite teacher!
I am totally one of those people who loves new school supplies. So I’ve wanted to do a knit pencil and crayon knitting pattern for a long time. But let’s be honest, this year back to school time looks weird and different for a lot of people. It’s hard, it’s strange, it’s just a lot for parents, it’s a lot for kids, it’s a lot for teachers and administrators.
So I hope a fun stuffed knit pencil and crayons will bring a little joy and levity into an otherwise unprecedented situation. We may be schooling our kids at home or with masks or some other configuration, but we can still try and make it joyful and fun, right?
Baby V is a big fan of the pencil and crayon knitting pattern, she honestly plays with these a lot, pretending to draw giant pictures and laughing. They’d make a great gift for a kid who loves school, who’s starting school, or for your favorite teacher. Wouldn’t they be cute on a teacher’s desk?!
Please note there is a VERY small amount of two color stranded knitting in the pencil pattern. If you do not want to do that I’ve included instructions for skipping it.
And hey, don’t forget you can knit your crayons in any color you want! Just make sure you have a light and dark tone of that color. Like light purple and dark purple. Or light green and dark green. I really really hope someone makes a whole rainbow of colors!
