This knitted cheese and tomato sandwich is a fun, easy knit and makes an instantly recognisable addition to any collection of play food or display food.
Suitable for beginners, I worked the 4 page pattern using Double Knitting yarn oddments of the same gauge. It can be made from many varieties of DK wool to create the different textures of food. To use the same yarn throughout, Patons and Robin have an excellent range of DK colours.
I've made sure the instructions are clear, simple and well illustrated. Sized at approx. 8cm square at a gauge of 22 stitches x 30 rows to 4," the sandwich forms the ideal basis for a crafted packed lunch. When wrapped in foil, it looks particularly realistic.
This sandwich is quick and easy to make and is perfect for children’s imaginative play - particularly in toy kitchens - or for kids’ tea parties, teddy bear or doll picnics.
Play Food is great for stimulating learning, whether through counting games or as a teaching resource.
The sandwich is safe when thrown or dropped and is washable at a low temperature.
Other uses could include display or decoration, or as pin cushions...
