What you need to know

Make Sachiyo Ishii's quick knitted fruit bowl play set with DK yarn from your stash

Children will love playing host with such bright and tactile veggies, making learning fun and easy. The faces are a wonderful touch and give that adorable knitted kawaii look.

Top knitting tips

Try different positioning for the facial features if you are not too happy with the face the first time. A simple thing, a distance between the eyes, for example, can sometimes make a big difference.
Stuff toys relatively firmly to help them keep their shape. Under-stuffed toys tend to lose their shape in time.
