My daughter asked me for a table cloth for her playmobil house. Now I’ve promised her a flowery one for a small circle table! I used a 4mm hook which was too large really but quick.Also used 20 thread, going to use Anchor 40 with a 0.8mm hook next….

There’s a 22 stitch repeating pattern with moss stitch and a simple yo, k2t to make the holes

Finished product from top clockwise, smoked salmon, jelly fish, fried wan tan skins, mooli, pomelo, coriander leaves, fried shallots and mooli with red cabbage with pickled ginger in the middle

I drained the fried cabbage in a metal sieve. I tried to do “seaweed”like you get in Chinese takeaways in Britain but didn’t get it crisp. Something to work on for next year..image

grating’s fine if you have a tefal 🙂

I have muslins left over from when the children were young and used one to squeeze the water out of the mooli before I deep fried it

I was really excited to find red colouring in Wiesbaden but it needed most of the bottle to colour the mooli.
