If you want other ideas for small knitting projects, check out the crafts page and scroll to the bottom of the page for various mittens, socks and egg cosies.
Those don’t have patterns either because don’t use any; I have an idea, like I’ve seen a fox somewhere sometime, I had some orange left over from the crocheted carrots I’ve made, and my son likes orange, so I thought that would work. And then my daughter wanted a bunny, which needed a characteristic tail to be recognisable. Then i just make them up as I go. It’s an easy way to “steal” an idea but add your own fingerprint on your work.
