Stumped for something to knit for the person who has everything? Bowled over by our knitting patterns? Think poverty and human suffering are just not cricket? OK, I’ll stop with the puns and introduce our Cricket Tea Cosy pattern from all round good egg, Ros Clarke.
We love Ros’ suggestion of hosting your own cricket tea, so you can have a good natter while raising money and awareness for MSF. You can read about Ros’ inspiration for her pattern here.
Then put the kettle on and cast on…
All our patterns have been generously donated to the project by MSF supporters and are available for your knitting pleasure. In return, we ask that you make a donation to p/hop based on the hours of enjoyment you will get from knitting these patterns.
