Eat your greens…

So do we all have sprouts with our Christmas dinner whether we like them or not?
Of course! The plate would just not look right without them…

Following a friend at work’s amazing pompom sprout making I decided to do a crochet version.

I found a simple circle pattern, chain 6 make a circle, then 2 chain, 11 htc and ss. Next row 2 htc in first stitch and 1 in the next – repeat all the way around and the same in the next row.

That seems to make a decent size for Sprout bunting!
Once I’ve made 9 sprouts I chain a string with 20 chains between each sprout.
Then the fun begins….

I got some wobbly eyes from The Works and Poundland (which are from Crayola) and Flying Tiger, all good and easily fixed with some UHU glue. The mouth is a squirt of gel paint from Hobbycraft.
Then to decorate, I made little red Christmas hats from felt and stuck them on with added glitter but you could add a little bunch of holly or whatever you fancied.

I rather think these look like they’ve been on the sherry and I am selling them as ‘Tipsy Sprouts’.

Once everything is dry I parcel them up and they will be heading off to my Etsy shop or being given out as gifts – depending on whether I sell any or not!

Thanks for reading
back soon
