Fairy House Knitting Pattern

Small but charming, this project is super easy to make, even if you are new to knitting. This little knit house seems like something straight from an illustrated children’s book. You’ll add cheerfulness wherever you decide to display it. The suggested colors use our sunshine mini skeins, but of course, you can use any colors you might like.

Sew some window frames using a darker brown yarn

 

To make up

Sew a door and windows onto the front of the house.

Using darker pink yarn, sew some flowers either side of the door, and add a small button to make the handle.

You are now ready to sew together the front and back panels (use a semaless stitch, like this one) and to stuff it with a bit of fiberfill.

Sew a little ribbon on the tip of the roof and your little house is ready to decorate door handles or to cheer any shelf.
