Join me in making this knitted lemon meringue pie slice - a fun, easy knit suitable for beginners. It makes an instantly recognisable addition to any collection of play food or display food.
I worked the one size, 4 page pattern using Patons Fab DK and Patons Fairytale Cloud DK. Other yarn oddments could be used, though the meringue topping would need a yarn with a similar texture to Fairytale Cloud.
As a triangle with a base of approx. 8cm and sides of approx. 11cm, the meringue slice is an ideal addition to any crafted afternoon tea. A collection of play food makes a great stash buster and whether collected individually or sold collectively at fundraising fairs, slices or a whole pie look simply irresistible...
Scrumptious as the real thing...
...and perfect for children’s imaginative play - particularly in toy kitchens - or for kids’ tea parties, teddy bear or doll picnics.
The slices are great for stimulating learning, whether through counting games or as a teaching resource.
They're safe when thrown or dropped and are also washable at a low temperature.
Other uses could include display or decoration, or as pin cushions...
