1:12th scale Crochet patterns
Patterns using acrylic 1ply are mainly for the beginner, these are a good introduction to crocheting in miniature, if you have not previously tried using a 1.25mm hook or smaller. Patterns using silk or cotton threads are for the more experienced, using a 0.4mm and 0.60mm hook.
12th scale Knitting Patterns
We have a large range of Knitting Patterns for 12th scale, which have been designed under the Busy Bee Miniature Knitting Patterns label, designed by Marion Barlow. The Knitting Starter Kit, again for the beginner in miniature knitting, contains a pattern for 2 pram blankets, 2 balls of soft 1ply cotton and a pair of no 19 knitting needles.
