Does anyone know where I can get knitting patterns for fun food for the children? Some examples: sandwiches, cookies, cakes, etc. I would be so grateful if anyone can help.

There is a site for free patterns. I think the address is http://www.freepatterns.com
Some sold yesterday on eBay from and old magazine - Knit a Birthday Cake & Party Food Play Knitting Pattern Item number: 8270989976 - seller redstreetmusic if that helps....
Here are some great links for you!
I am a knitted food fiend! :)
I just saw a website with the knitted food on.
Jean Greenhowe's jiffy knits also has a lot of food patterns.
go to knittingpatterncentral.com They have numerous links to free knitted food patterns
Go to Jean Greenhowe's website.
There's now two knitted food pattern booklets that you can download for free.

Some of the best patterns for knitted cakes that I've ever seen (and knitted) are by a seller called cakescakescakes on www.etsy.com
They look very professional compared to others I've tried.
I am attaching a picture of some of them from a pattern by cakescakescakes that I've just bought.
Love this website in general but here are some great ones. Hope they help, and also has great pictures.

I am trying to find the instructions to knit one piece little teddy bears. They are about 6 inches tall. I know some children that would like one.

Here are a couple of links with several knit teddy bear patterns you might look through:
Thank you so very much Kaelle for your response. It was just what I was looking for. Thiftyfun is just amazing!
Does anyone have a pattern for knitted or crocheted booties for a dog? Thank you
Crocheted dog booties are on the website.
Marge from NY
The crochetpatterncentral website is adorable, but will a dog leave the booties on for long? Please send us a photo when you get them made.
Cast on 20 stitches of 4 ply yarn on size 7 needles. Knit the middle 10 with double yarn. Knit in garter stitch for 2 1/2". Tie off 2nd strand of yarn. Knit 1" in stockinet. Cast on 10 more stitches to make a tab. Knit 6 rows with these stitches added. Bind off those 10 stitches. Knit 2" . Cast on 10 stitches for 2nd tab and knit 6 rows. Bind off those ten. Knit one more inch and bind off. Place the two sides together at the bottom and attach to the middle of the bottom row. Sew up to the beginning of the stockinet stitches. Sew Velcro on tab ends and on bootie to fit your dog. This fits a Sheltie sized dog and is an original design of mine since I could not find one on the internet. Faith
Some years ago my grandmother used to knit and crochet a cosy to go on a drinking glass. When she was finished the form was basically like the foam cozies you buy in the store. I am looking for the knitting pattern for these cozies if anyone has anything like this.
This is instructions for crochet, not knitting. Maybe it will help.
I don't knit, but I do crochet drink cozies. All I do is make a flat round piece the size of the bottom of the glass by increasing on every row and then do the same number of stitches in each row for as long as I want the cozy to be high. If you don't understand what I'm saying, write me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I'll go into more detail. Wish I could help you with knitting, but that's not my thing - my sister does that! Ha!
Hello. I just found this website and the request for a drink cozy might be too late.
About 40 years ago my aunt knitted Christmas stockings for our three children. I would like to knit similar ones for our grandchildren, but can't find the patterns. One had Santa in a jack-in-the-box. Another was just a Santa face with an angora beard, and the third was Santa in a chimney. They were very ornate and decorated with sequins. Does anyone have any similar patterns?

Does anyone have a pattern for a knitted dickie? The only pattern I can find is knitted from the neck down and this makes it quite a loose fit.

I am looking for a pattern for a knitted necklace.
I don't know what type you are looking for exactly but here are a few links:
I'm looking for a free knitting pattern for a polo neck insert. I had one years ago but lost it.
I'm looking for a knitting pattern for a ballet crossover cardigan to fit a five year old. Any help gratefully received.
