Mixed Grill Mats

The good folks at Lark Books were interested in having a little crocheted meat in their next book. So, they inquired within as I am the self-avowed Queen of Crocheted Flesh. I don't know why, but that title makes me exceedingly happy. I know. Twisted.

Anyhow, editors extraordinaires did favor a change of location for my examples of crocheted meaty fabulousness thinking grills might look better on the table than about the shoulders. I know. I can't believe it either! Mon Dieu!

So in light of this fact, I redesigned the 'ques to be larger and more plate-friendly. Here's a Mat O' Steak...



Kabobs...



Franks...



Cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger...



And assorted appliques for waiting for their close-up!





Check out the backside of this steak. I had a fair isle thing going on here...



Get your hooks ready because this meaty pattern will soon be available in a bookstore near you!
Oh, and knitters? Grilled meaty goodness coming your way soon!

Ooh, I love em all, but adore the kabobs! Great colors, everything. Amazing once again.

Sara said...

Love the mats. But isn't that typical of the big commercial machine to thwart the original vision of the artiste? ;-)

Imaginary Maggie said...

Me: a knittier! And yes I would LOVE to be able to purchase your Mixed Grill Mat patterns if they were written in knit. (Knit is too a language!)

Queen of Crocheted Flesh. Well considering you have crocheted Beings From Other Universes, yes, "Flesh" would work...course it might not translate well beyond our moon....

Shell said...

I can now complain to the room mate that I need to go out and buy some meat coloured yarn.

Good thing he knows I'm crazy.

Jaye said...

Jennifer said...

OMG This is the coolest crocheted thing I have ever seen. I absolutely love to grill. I've been known to grill anything not moving. Although my husband grills the steaks. You have inspired me to pcik up my needle and creat my own yummy creations. Bravo!!!!
