These super cute fridge magnets are great fun to knit and can be made in under 30 minutes! Let us see how!

 

Supplies needed: You would need a few toothpicks, beads, glue, coin shaped magnets, some yarn, size 2 mm needles, and a pair of scissors.

Begin by putting some glue on the tip of a toothpick, then carefully place a bead on it.

 

We now have our tiny knitting needles ready!

Now with the yarn, cast on 10 sts on 2 mm needles, and knit 10 rows.

Knit 5 sts in the next row, and carefully transfer the stitches to the two toothpicks…

Now cut the yarn, leaving a 10 inch tail, and wrap the tail around the crossed toothpicks. Secure the yarn end with glue.

Now glue the magnet to the back of your work, and your fridge magnet is ready!
