Cheese and Tomato Sandwich Play Food / Pin Cushion
This knitted cheese and tomato sandwich is a fun, easy knit and makes an instantly recognisable addition to any collection of play food or pin cushions.
Suitable for beginners, the 4 page pattern has been worked using Double Knitting yarn oddments and - if tension is checked- can be made from many varieties of DK wool to create the different textures of food. The instructions are clear, simple and well illustrated.
Sized approx. 8cm square, the sandwich forms the ideal basis for a crafted packed lunch. When wrapped in foil, it looks particularly realistic.

I wouldn't say I forget everything else when I'm designing... but I do drink a lot of cold coffee! I'm an obsessive knitter who began writing patterns whenever one I bought proved disappointing or when I couldn't find quite what I wanted My patterns are designed to be as easy as possible to make and as straightforward as possible to make up. They're designed to be fun!
