UK Hand Knitting Association. Make Me Sweet. Free Hand Knitting Patterns.

The UK Hand Knitting Association 'Make Me Sweet' exhibition stand was at 
the Harrogate Knitting and Stitching Show held last week at Harrogate Exhibition Centre.

I was very flattered to have been asked to design and write 
a couple of patterns for this exciting and fun project. 
'Chocolate Truffles' and 'Sweets in Wrappers'.
Both patterns are free and suitable for beginners or those 
who have never picked up the knitting needles before. 
Simple cast on, knit and cast off.
Perfect first knitting patterns, each sweet takes just the tiniest bit of yarn
and a very small quantity of polyester toy filling.

'Chocolate Truffles'

'Sweets in Wrappers'
Other sweet patterns including crochet are available at:
