winter project

A collection of crocheted food for Greta to cook with alongside me in the kitchen--for her first birthday in a couple of months.

(Inspired by a friend's creations and waldorf mama's advent gift)

Do you have a pattern you are working from? If not, can you write one? ;)

Elizabeth said...

Beautiful!

Just wondering, did you "invent" the patterns for the corcheted food as you went along or did you find a pattern online or in a book?

Katya said...

No, no pattern...I'm just making them up: "add a dc cluster here, decrease there" as the mood strikes me. Unfortunately all the fun would be lost if I agonized over actually transcribing my crochetetive wanderings, so my suggestion for anyone wanting their own veggie project is: Google it! I just hopped over to google and found some real gems just on the first page:
:: Crafty Anna's Crochet Patterns--Fruits and Veggies
:: Truly Scrumptious Crocheted Food Patterns

There are also knitting patterns and places to buy already-made veggies. :)
