Everybody needs their own army of minions.... even if they are only tiny knitted stuffed ones.
If you can weild a couple of knitting needles, manage a knit and purl stitch... and have a desire to rule the world... this should be a simple task.

Step 1: Materials Needed

You will need:

Size 4mm knitting needles
Yellow, Blue, Black, and Grey DK Yarn.
1 goggle eye
Needle to sew it up
Crochet hook to make the front of the pants.

You won't need a lot of each yarn.  The most is the yellow, and less than 50gm is needed.

Terms used:
stst - Stocking Stitch.  Alternating rows of Knit and Purl Stitches
k - knit
p - purl
k2tog - Knit 2 Together
Wanted to share my finished minion with you. Will be gifting it to my 7-year-old sin tomorrow for the 7th night if Hanukkah.
How long did yours turn out to be?
<p>this is so awesome!!!! I'm definitely gonna make this once I have all the stuff I need! ^__^</p>
So when you stst does it come up with 40 rows since you are alternating (1 stst =1 knit and 1 pearl?) I just normal knitted it and it is turning out to be very small in the yellow part of the torso.
I'm really enjoying your epic project ! I can't wait for the finished critter :-D :-D :-D
<p>Hi, what size eye do I need to buy for the minion? Thanks.</p>
How much would you charge for this little guy??
​I now have them listed on etsy - https://www.etsy.com/listing/174673755/knitted-minion?ref=shop_home_active_1<br><br><br>But conning a knitter into making one for you is always a good option.
<p>hi, could someone tell me were to buy the goggle eye please, my wife has knitted the doll but cant find anywhere to buy one,,</p>
Hello,<br><br>I get mine from a local craft store. But there is also a wide selection on etsy.com.
This is adorbs! So well done and in knitting too! I always feel knitting critters is so much harder than crocheting them so bravo!
Sorry there! That's son (not sin)!!! Thanks so much for posting this! :-D
Maybe, I'll take this one on, after I knit an Instructables Robot.
I'm working on this now, and it seems to be awfully small. You used DK yarn ... Is that American or English DK?
That is a good question! I'm in New Zealand, so it's probably an English DK... 8ply if that helps.<br><br>The finished minion ends up at about 20cm tall.... Ish.
that's amazing!!
I absolutely love it!! Im so trying this.... minions rock! x
so cute!
Minions rock!
