Juanitas Minion a Cute Free Pattern

Loom Knit Minion Pattern

Loom Knit Minion


Some people just got it like that. They capture a concept and run with it. Juanita Husselmann followed a few patterns and within no time she was creating her own. As if that wasn’t enough she goes and designs a pattern for my favorite tiny super heroes, the Minions. They’re yellow (my favorite color), talk baby gibberish, they’re short, chubby and wear fashion forward overalls, I just love them.

Below is her Juanita’s free pattern. Very basic and easy to follow. If you want a printable PDF just click the link.This is her first so I thank her for allowing me to share with my Loomahat.com readers who I know will be kind, grateful and encouraging as always, to this beautiful young lady.

Feel free to leave comments and questions for Juanita or I in the comment section below the post.
