    Straw Plaiting – Countryman’s Favour

    By: Barbara

    The Countryman’s Favour or the Harvest Knot is one of the most traditional and easiest straw crafts. The shape of the knot resembles a heart, and it was often presented as a love token. Young men would make those favours at harvest time for their loved ones. If she was wearing the Harvest Knot next to her heart, her love was returned.
