Satisfy your cravings for sweet and savoury goods by knitting or crocheting your very own tempting treats

Afternoon Tea Set Knitting Patterns

The Great British Bake Off always leaves us craving homemade treats.

With delicious cakes, biscuits and loaves of bread being carefully crafted by the contestants each week, it’s really not hard to see why.

We’ve come up with a wonderful way to satisfy our urges for sweet and savoury goods that won’t make us put on any weight.

Curious to know what we’ve got in mind?

We suggest swapping flour, butter and sugar for your knitting needles and crochet hook to make yourself some delicacies from the comfort of your own sofa.

With cups and sauces, a plate, striped teapot and trio of cupcakes, our Afternoon Tea Knitting Patterns set will certainly keep you busy while the programme is on.

Shatter-proof and spill-resistant, it’s an intermediate make that kids will adore playing with too.

When finished, our Cupcakes Make Crochet Pattern can be transformed into something that looks good enough to eat. Add sparkling beads to the top of the cakes for the perfect final flourish.

Knit up our Cupcakes Knitting Pattern and we’re sure you’ll be in with a chance of being crowned the evening’s Star Baker on GBBO.

These dinky puds are knitted in bold and bright DK yarn and feature daffodil and mini egg toppings.

We’re sure last year’s winner Nadia Hussain would be proud to put her name to these faux bakes. The technique required to master this pattern is stocking-stitch. This is followed by a single-ribbed trim.

We’d love to know what GBBO judges Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood plus presenters Mel Giedroyc and Sue Perkins think of our crafty creations.
