Some of our older patterns can be found on our online store. These include 1:12th (one inch) scale and 1:24th (half inch) scale knitting patterns, covering the period from the13th Century to the present day. We also have a range of Traditional British knitting patterns, including, Arans, fishing ganseys & Shetland Lace.

• All 1/12th scale patterns can be adapted for 1/16th scale by knitting with needles two sizes smaller.
• Men’s patterns can be knitted for 1/12th scale ladies or youths by using size 21 needles instead of size 19 needles.
• Most patterns contain more than one item, a few patterns may also contain crochet, these are all clearly marked.
• Some patterns are graded as suitable for Intermediate or experienced knitters. This refers to knitting in miniature as well as full size. If this is your first attempt at miniature knitting try a simple pattern first.

We have a range of miniature crochet patterns in both 1:12th (one inch) and 1:24th (half inch) scale. These are mainly for household items and Christmas decorations from Victorian times to the present day.

Patterns for small Teddy Bears
As Teddy bears have different proportions to humans we have designed some patterns, which are suitable for small teddy bears.
