Looking For …..

I think these are called pendant trays in US, so far I haven’t found any in UK – ideally I would like them to be quite large (bigger than 1in square at least) – square or rectangular. If anyone sees anything like it could they let me know.

Knitted Tic Tac Mint Cosies

And……  the prize for the “Most Unnecessary, Too Much Time On Your Hands Craft Award” goes to ……….. Moi!
My husband is seriously addicted to Tic Tac mints, so I decided to make him a set of cosies to fit the large and regular size boxes for his “New Years Tut”  They made me laugh so much that I thought they deserved a post of their very own!

Now…….  just in case anyone would like the pattern !!!!!!
I used size 4 1/2 mm needles and some double knitting wool.  For the large size - cast on 27 stitches and knit 25 rows of knit one row, purl one row and then 3 knit rows for the top, before casting off.  Sew up.

For the smaller size cast on 16 stitches, knit 16 rows of knit one row, purl one row and then 3 rows of knit  before casting off. Sew Up.
That should keep his mints warm!!!
