I can't decide if these knitted eyeballs are cute or creepy, but they definitely make a fun Halloween decoration when you put a few of them in a jar. They are incredibly quick and easy to make - here's the simple pattern if you fancy making a few to decorate the house at Halloween.
Row2: (kfb,k1) x 4 12sts
Row4: (kfb,k1) x6 18sts
Row6: (kfb, k2) x 6 24sts
Row 9: p
Row12: (K2tog, k2) x6 18sts
Row14: (K2tog, k1) x6 12sts
Cut the yarn leaving a long tail. Thread large needle with yarn and using the needle pull the yarn back through the remaining stitches. Pull tight to gather and secure with a knot. Do not cut the yarn as you will use it to sew up the edges of the eyeball.
Decorate the front of your eyeball. I used two buttons but you could also use coloured yarn or thread to embroider an iris and pupil.
Using the yarn tail that you have left, sew along the straight edges of the eyeball. Next sew small running stitches around the top edge and pull to gather. Secure with a knot and cut the yarn.
Your frightfully cool knitted decoration is now complete. Time to make another one before 31st October!
