  • chain 14, sl st to close to loop.
  • chain 1, sc 22 into the loop. sl st into the single chain of previous row. (from here on crochet into the back loop of the sts to create the rib pattern!)
  • (work over the following 11 sts) chain 1, sc 5, sc 3 into next st, sc 5, turn.
  • chain 1, sc 6, sc 3 into the next stitch (middle one of the three sts of the previous row), sc 6, turn. continue like this until you reached the desired size.

sl st - slip stitch

Scone Recipe for ~ 4 people
- makes 8 medium or 12 snack size scones

Every once in a while I have this urge for a sweet baked bite, but not cake.
Scones are quick to make and best fresh and oven warm.
- Living on my own I usually half the recipe.

225gr flour (I use whole grain)
4 levelled teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
55gr cold butter cut into pieces
55gr sugar
juice from 1/2 a lemon
120ml luke warm half/ half milk (I use almond milk and while less rich, it still works as well)


  • eggwash (eggyoke & milk)
  • A handful of raisins
  • Cinnamon


Mix flour, baking powder and salt. Add butter and mix by hand to an even crumble. Mix in sugar and lemon juice. Finally add the milk and turn into a smooth dough. (For the last step I use a wooden spoon until most of the milk is worked in.)

Take half the dough, roll to a ball, press down to a disk of about 2.5cm / 1” height and with a large knife cut like a cake into 4 or 6 triangles. Place pieces apart form each other (if you like to, add eggwash) and bake at 220 C (420 F) for ~12-15min.
Eat warm with a bit of butter/ clotted cream and jam…
