The Great Knitted Bake Off

This week, we’re taking crafting inspiration from the new series of Great British Bake off. Every Tuesday we’re left dreaming of the creations baked up by contestants & with very few baking skills to show off, we’ve found a way to play along on our own terms! We’ve rounded up enough sweet treats to feed a small army (or just us on a Friday night!) & the best thing? No calories involved whatsoever!

So if you’re all ready, on your marks, get set… BAKE!


We’re kicking things off with a classic – the cupcake. Chocolate or Vanilla? Cherry on top or sprinkles? The choice is yours!

Jammie Dodger

The first of a few biscuits we’ve rounded up & arguably one of the best! This Jam-filled treat is made from felt pieces cut into shape from downloadable templates.

Cherry Pie

The ultimate challenge – pastry! This crochet cherry pie actually looks good enough to eat (although we wouldn’t advise it!) No chance of a soggy bottom with this one!!

Gingerbread Man

These treats look so simple to make! Again, made from felt shapes sewn together, they have a traditional feel & would make great christmas gifts or decorations!

A fun project using bright colours & a bit of imagination. The icing is what makes these doughnuts look so great & beads or yarn toppings finish them off perfectly!

Another colourful crochet project, the French macaroon. There are so many different patterns for these little treats online & we even stumbled across a macaroon purse – NEED!

This is one for those who would rather knit than cook – a breakfast staple, complete with butter portion! Customise how baked your pastry is by the colour of your yarn.

Custard Cream

What’s a biscuit tin without a few custard creams? Unfortunately, it’s often tricky to stop at just one & you may say the same after trying this simple crochet pattern.

Cherry Bakewell

This week’s showstopper is the Cherry Bakewell! This knitting pattern doubles up as a Jam Tart & would make a perfect afternoon treat with a cup of tea!

How could we forget bread week? Even Paul Hollywood would be proud of this creation, it’s got Star Baker written all over it!
