My Minecraft experiences only started recently, but my understanding of the pig is that they used to be way more important than they are now. While pork was once the only source of meet, you now have chicken and beef... and with beef you get leather, too. Nevertheless, these little pigs are darling and are the only creatures that you can ride!
What will you knit with this minecraft knitting chart?
Are you surprised that the first friendly mob Minecraft knitting chart I share with you is the sheep? One of this first things I created in my personal Minecraft game was a sheep farm with all of the different colors... if only I could start knitting in the game (just kidding!)
I would recommend knitting this in the white, brown and pink and then using duplicate stitches for the white and black eyes. I have chosen to show the body of the sheep as a pale grey to give you the easy option to make the wool a different color from the eyes.
Grrrrrrr..... I love zombies, and the Minecraft zombie is no exception. The official image has many shades to make the zombie face, but I reduced it to a total of three colors to make it easier to incorporate into your knitting.
I hope you are enjoying this series of Minecraft Knitting Charts! Stay tuned for some more friendly faces.
When playing Minecraft, I really like the skeleton mobs. Sure, they may hit you with lots of arrows, but they usually don't push you off anything (or explode behind you!) I chose this face as the second Minecraft Knitting Chart to share with you because it also makes a great knitting chart with only two colors in the face.
I have been playing a lot of Minecraft lately, and love the pixelated graphics. Why? Well this makes them easy to adapt into knitting charts! I am pleased to share the first free knitting pattern to be hosted on KPOTD, a Creeper Knitting Chart.
Most of the Minecraft graphics have many different shades in them. In the future characters knitting charts that I will share, I will do my best to minimize the number of colors so you can use as few colors at a time as possible. The creeper would look best (most authentic) if you use a variegated green yarn for the background.
When will you see the other characters? Well I will be publishing 7 other popular Minecraft character knitting charts this week! Who do you think you will see tomorrow?

Interweave's Spinning Daily has come out with a great drop spindle tutorial eBook. It was enough to get me to take my drop spindle out of the closet and give it another try. What has been keeping you from trying spinning?
There are many wonderful sock blankets using multiple colors of yarn, but not many people have that much sock scrap yarn hanging around... Since these types of patterns are so popular, there are many mini-skein swap groups on Ravelry, including Mini Mania.
I am currently working on the Beekeeper's quilt, so I will have to join some swaps as soon as I start running low on my own miniskeins!

What is luxury yarn to you? Maybe it is delicious handspun fibers and colors. Maybe it is novelty yarn. Well Artyarns Beaded Cashmere & Sequins is cashmere yarn spun with beads and sequins in the fibers. This would make a very fancy knitting project!
First everyone you know gets engaged (and married) and then they all start having kids. If you are a knitter, you usually enjoy making little hats for these bundles of joy. The problem comes when you want some variety in these knit baby hats. Look no further! If you bring this list of baby hat knitting pattern books to your local library, you will find many popular books filled almost exclusively with knit baby hat patterns.
I am in the process of stockpiling knit baby hat patterns because I sense a wave of pregnancy announcements in the next few years!
"Los Angeles-based mixed media artist Ben Cuevas has created The Anatomical Knit-Hood Series, a five-part collection of knit sculptures that represent “a different layer of the human anatomy" These Knit Anatomy Sculptures are horrifying and amazing at the same time.
I cannot tell you how many times I've worn circular needles around my neck... out of convenience. I have never thought to use it as jewelry! Well now you can, because Miknitures creates jewelry out of knitting needles. What a fun, unique jewelry idea for knitters.
