It’s time for another free knitting pattern – huzzah!
Please forgive the absence of patterns recently, tea-related business has taken over somewhat of late. But now we are back on track and we’ve got some lovely things up our sleeves.
As we trundle along into summer, our thoughts have turned to lazy weekend breakfasts al fresco. We’re dreaming of dusting off the patio furniture and cracking out the melamine plates. And we think this design would be the perfect addition to your breakfast table.
This sweet little basket, designed by Knitvana, is ideal for carrying a selection of teas to your outdoor dining area, with a touch of cutesy style. It will be particularly handy when you’ve got guests to stay or friends over for brunch.
It’s so wee, that this little knit will be quick to finish and you could even use up some of the odds and ends in your stash. Who doesn’t love a good bit of stash busting?
The construction is really simple. It’s made of just two strips, sewn together at angles to create a base and a handle, so even if you are a novice knitter, you can definitely whip up one of these. You could even give it as a gift, with a selection of your favourite teas, for a fellow tea fiend.
So, what are we waiting for? Let’s get knitting! We’d love to see some snaps of your finished baskets.
