Free Knitting Patterns

Free Knitting Pattern for a Knitted Slow Cooker

Slow Cooker

This traditional Hay Box is an insulated covering for your favorite pot that will allow you to slow cook your favorite soups, grains, and stews to perfection, just as our pioneer ancestors did. Just knit and felt a super-insulated hay box for your pot with leftover yarn in your stash, 100% wool (feltable) and superwash. It works to either slow cook food or keep it warm for hours, so it’s great for potlucks as well. Designed by Brigitte Chase. Comes with a bonus recipe!
