Ambassador you are spoiling us..........
This is one of the gorgeous handmade Christmas gifts I received this year from my friend Val. They are little knitted coats for Ferrero Rocher (F R) chocolates. The good thing is, once they all have their jackets on, you can only fit one layer of chocs in the F R box so you have to eat the top layer! I have have knitted one myself, (2nd pic) and although I did go wrong, I am still pleased with the result. It's a great way to give someone a box of chocs with a handmade twist or you could just give one as a small gift. Here is the pattern. Happy knitmas!
