A slice of fun…
After making my Battenberg Blanket, inspired by the teatime cake of the same name, making a few smaller and slightly more realistic looking slices seemed like a natural next step!
Choose from a simple marzipan coating, or a border with a sugar sprinkling picots to finish.

Skill Level
This pattern uses a basic motif with a simple border pattern.

Any yarn can be used to make these mini Baby Battenbergs, only a small amount of yardage for each colour is needed. One ‘slice’ uses approximately 6g (28 yards) of 4ply/fingering yarn.

I decided to use mine as coasters, it seemed the best way to justify their existence. If you’d like to do the same and want to use yours for anything that is going to get reasonably hot I’d recommend using a wool or cotton yarn. (Nothing with acrylic or similar, which could melt.)

3mm (C/D USA) - Or appropriate hook size for your yarn choice.

Yarn needle

4ply/fingering weight yarn makes a baby berg approximately 10cm (4”) square.

Each square motif is 4cm (1⅝”) across
(With 4ply yarn and hook given above)
