A traditional Scottish accompaniment to haggis and ideal for a Burns Night supper, Hogmanay celebrations or your First Footing, the Swede is a root vegetable that is usually boiled and mashed or used in soups or hearty stews. Now you can crochet your own version of this 'neep' or 'Swedish turnip' that even the fussiest of eaters will enjoy!

With no watering required, the TOFT crochet vegetable range is low maintenance, always in season and guaranteed to brighten up your home all year round!

TOFT’s Alexandra’s Garden vegetable kits all include a printed postcard pattern alongside a downloadable digital copy, lengths of Black and Cream yarn for the eyes and ‘cro-your-own’ packaging.
