Inspired by Majas hobbykrok post on knitting a cover for firelighter boxes I gave it a try this weekend.
The firelighter box originally screams at you…and I have a box with a design that is less colorful than the ones out there… My box measurs 37 cm in diameter and 23,5 cm high.
I’m not 100% happy with the result. Mostly because I knit the pattern too tight, causing the snowflakes to be a bit stretched. But happy with my efficiency…only took me one weekend!
After making one is such a short time I will make more of these. need to be able to change it when I feel like it. The box is stored next to our fireplace year round, so should have some designs that can be used with the different seasons…not just snowflakes.
Very happy with my color choice, the deep purple with the off white…very advent. With purple being my favorite color, how can I not love it I did make some changes to the original pattern…other than the colors…I “removed” a row of snowflakes in the pattern. I felt it was too much with two rows.
- do you have firelighter boxes that need covering?
- what designs would you like to see on your cover?
