The holiday season is approaching and I know many of you are hard at work knitting and crocheting for the holidays. But if you’re stumped on what to crochet for your kids or grand-kids, all you need to do is ask them one simple question:
“Do you like the movie Despicable Me?”
And if they are like most children these days, they’ll jump up and down, start singing “bee-doh-bee-doh-bee-doh,” and start quoting lines from the movies. My little sister was a minion for Halloween this year and she has minion t-shirts, posters…but there’s one thing she doesn’t have…
A crocheted minion! If I get my act together, I may try one of these free crochet minion patterns by Christmas. There are also two knitting patterns and a minion crochet motif to make the cutest afghan ever!
Despicable Me Santa Minion (knit) – These little guys make great presents for kids and adults, stocking-stuffers, ornaments, or table decoration. Make a whole army and have the Despicable Me Santa Minions bake your cookies, trim the tree, leave cookies for Santa, and other holiday chores.
Despicable Me Minion (knit) – The Despicable Me Minion is a relatively simple pattern, and it includes both written instructions and a knitting chart.
Minion from Despicable Me Amigurumi – Though the eyes on this minion are a little big, I think it makes him extra cute!
Insanely Cute Minion Pencil Case – Kids of all ages will love using this one-of-a-kind classroom accessory when they go back to school after the holiday break.
Minion Crochet Motif – Pair this motif with some blue yarn and blue crochet motifs for a kid-friendly afghan.
Fingerless Minion Mitts – These are cutest mittens around! This is a fairly easy crochet mitten pattern that uses the magic circle.
