Also requires lightweight buttons for ‘chocolates’. Smaller buttons, beads, fabric flowers, ribbon roses, etc, for toppings are optional. The only limitation is your imagination!

Gauge is not critical but the block should work out roughly 13” square after wet blocking.

When finished, your box of chocolates can be used as an afghan block, a wall hanging or a knitted picture. It could make a great gift for a chocolate lover if mounted in a box frame or shadow box when they would literally have a box of chocolates without the calories! Or, why not make it just the right size to place inside an empty chocolate box? Don’t forget to warn your friend before temptation kicks in though or someone might find themselves with a hefty dental bill!
