Roast Beef Dinner

This is a roast beef dinner. There are a couple of things missing from the plate- roast potatoes and gravy. Neither one translated into such a small scale of crochet very well, so I’m just pretending that someone couldn’t wait and wolfed down the potatoes, and hasn’t yet got TO the gravy. Or whatever. 😉

If you’re unfamiliar with Yorkshire Pudding, here’s what it looks like.

I’ve heard that they can be compared to American pop-overs. Having never tried a pop-over, all I can say is that they were my favorite part of a roast beef dinner growing up.

This is another stuffing-free pattern!

Materials:

  • Worsted weight medium brown, tan, orange, white, and sport-weight medium green. The beans look just fine with worsted weight.
  • G-sized crochet hook

Weave in all loose ends. Arrange all pieces and glue on plate, if desired. I made 9 carrots and 11 green beans, make as many as desired.
