BK4K Has Fun with Food!

Delicious SandwichBK4K is our monthly kids’ newsletter that’s perfect for kids and the adults that craft with them, from parents and grandparents to teachers and scout leaders.

In this past month’s issue of BK4K we were inspired by summer picnics and the fun of make-believe. We shared patterns for a sandwich with knitted, crocheted, and spool-knitted “ingredients,” as well as a crafted drink can that you can personalize and fast to make carrot sticks.

Want more sandwich options? You can make all sorts of cold cuts and veggies for your sandwich simply by knitting or crocheting rectangles or circles in the colors you want and embroidering or using duplicate stitch to add details such as the seeds on a “hamburger bun.” Combine these items with our egg pattern and bacon pattern. If you like these patterns, look out for even more yarn foods later this fall!
