Enjoy a tea and crochet break with Emma Lyons’ yarny treats, in association with Tick Tock Tea
We all know the importance of ‘me’ time, so make space to sit back and relax with a big mug of tea, a new crochet project, and a sweet treat or two. Only small quantities of yarn are needed to make this deliciously calorie-free set of retro mini biscuits, and any cotton dk yarn works well. The biscuits are made in separate pieces and sewn together, making them a great project for beginners. Find the rest of the biscuit crochet pattern in Mollie Makes 67, out today!
