These little homes are made by knitting 2 house shapes then sewing them together. Here's how to make a house shape:

  • In roof colour (yellow - or your choice!) cast on 2 stitches. Leave a long tail (for sewing houses together or for hanging tag).

  • Row 1: KFB (increase). Knit to last stitch, KFB (increase).

  • Row 2: Purl.

  • Repeat these 2 rows until there are 12 stitches (10 rows total).

  • Row 11: In house colour (turquoise - or your choice!) knit all 12 stitches.

  • Row 12: (Continuing in house colour until the end.) Purl all 12 stitches.

  • Row 13: Knit.

  • Row 14: Purl.

  • Row 15: Knit.

  • Row 16: Purl.

  • Row 17: Knit.

  • Row 18: Purl.

  • Row 19: Knit.

  • Row 20: Purl.

  • Row 21 : BO 12. Bind/cast off all 12 stitches (in a knit BO).

Repeat to make the second house.


  • Sew windows and door on one house (optional).

  • Sew a C (for Yes on Prop C!) on the other house (optional).

  • Sew these two houses together along perimeter (right sides facing out) all the way around.

  • For a plump home: Before you complete sewing the houses together, stuff home with filling then sew the gap closed. 

The long threads can be used to hang the home (from a tree or fence or bulletin board!) and attach the Yes on Prop C tag.
