Taking a look at this blog over the past week or so, it appears I have a bit of a summer berry obsession. Mmm hmm…
These knitted strawberries are a birthday gift for O. Last Christmas, some family members got together and gifted O a beautiful wooden kitchen. (This one from Willow Toys.) I’ve been meaning to make him some knitted play food ever since.
These strawberries are a quick knit, if a bit fiddly at first. I started each one on two needles rather than three because I found it a bit easier to work that way. I switched to three before starting the green and back to two with the decreases. I was able to knit these little berries with yarn scraps from other projects and it worked out wonderfully. The finished results are super cute and I can’t wait to see O’s face when he receives them!
Pattern can be found here.
What are you working on? Anything berry themed?
PS I think I mentioned this before but the ravelry link above is now accessible to everyone, not just ravelry members.
