Border help
I am very new to knitting...I'm trying to make some play food for my children and I figured a slice of bread would be the easiest thing to start with. I can't find any pattern for a slice of bread that has "crust", but that's what I really want to do, however, I don't know how to do a border. I just want about 2 stitches for the border and I'm sure there has to be an easier way to do it than tying the new color on every row! So, if you could help me out I would greatly appreciate it!! I've spent the last few nights searching the internet trying to figure it out and I don't have anyone near me that I can ask. Thanks so much!!

For only 2 sts your best, and quickest option, would be to knit the white part, and then crochet the 'beige' crust. If you have to knit it, you could CO with the beige, switch to white after a couple rows but continue to work the 1 or 2 beige sts at the beginning and end of each row (you'd have to work from 2 diff skeins), and then do your last 2 rows in the beige to finish the 'crust.'

Does that help? (If you're a member of Rav, there're lots of knitted and crocheted foods. Not sure of bread, specifically, but probably there or someone who knows where to find it.)

Perhaps these crocheted items will help with the visual:

Toast with butter

Bread with jam

Knitted food links

AMAZING patterns with a few freebie food-related

What is Rav?? Actually after more searching around on here last night I figured out that I'm going to start w/the tan, then add in the white, then end with the tan for the top and bottom crusts, then add stitches to the sides with the tan to do the side crusts. Hopefully it will turn out looking all right, but I'd still love to know what Rav is for more fun food ideas! Thanks
