101 Play Food Crochet Patterns

posted in: DIY | 1

Knitting and crocheting are nourishing activities for me.

Although I did not become an avid knitter until my tween/teen years, my grandmother taught me to knit and purl when I was around eight or nine.

However, when I came to the United States, I was no longer able to indulge in a favorite pastime as I could no longer understand the knitting instructions. This was before the internet, YouTube, and online classes and I knew no one who could help me.

When life hands you lemons make lemonade, right?

As a result, I taught myself how to crochet (this was also before YouTube and the internet). I bought a simple pattern and made and unmade row after row until it all made sense. Learning to crochet was a lengthy process for me and a rewarding one.

As I became more proficient in English, I was eventually able to understand knitting instructions.

Overall, I am self-taught in both crafts and I personally think it shows. Despite this fact, I still enjoy knitting and crocheting.


Homemade Gifts

Yes, I’m that lady with a project bag at any and every appointment “just in case.”

Last year for Christmas, my amazing daughter-in-law asked me to make some soft food toys for her (then) two-year-old daughter.

I also made her some fruits for her birthday in July.

For Christmas, I crocheted some additional food items: pie, ice cream, pizza, donuts, sandwiches, cupcakes, and much more.

This blog post is a direct result of my foray into crochet food. Most of the patterns I used were totally free, which I loved. I included many other recipes in this post in the process of writing for a total of 101 play food crochet patterns to be exact.
