    I love your licorice allsorts, would you have a checkered pattern for a tea cozy

  2. Fabulous-my daughter loved the sweets for her school art project! Now everyone wants some

  3. For the square sweets, i cast on 10 stitches and stocking stitch 10 rows, cast off. Make 2 in coloured, 1 in black. Sew the square together like an envelope, sewing the corners in, make sure the stocking stitch side is on the outside. Then sandwich and sew the 3 together, making sure the stocking stitch side is on the outside.

  4. I like the idea. I made a whole jar full of these and gave them to my sister as a present. She keeps them in here kitchen as a decoration. For the bobbly ones, I just used some pink or blue bobbly yarn and stocking stitch for 5 inches then rolled up.

  5. how about the ones with the bobbly bits, everyones favourite!!!

      I think to make the square one you just knit small squares of whatever colour you want and sew them together

  10. How do you make the square ones. Made the others for a party and caused a laugh!!
