Titus Who?

Sorry, not Titus Welliver, star of Bosch, but Titus Andronicus, eponymous hero (tragic division) of one of Shakespeare's least produced plays.

TITUS: Hark, villains! I will grind your bones to dust, … and make two past(r)ies of your shameful heads (Titus Andronicus, Act V, Scene iv).

I've always liked an underdog, so for my first pattern for Defarge Does Shakespeare I  took this world-class gorefest as my inspiration for Titus A's Awful Nice Pie, a crocheted coaster set, with the pasty-shaped container doubling as a wine coaster.

You can, of course, work up the coasters your team colors as a nice little hostess gift, or crochet the covered box to hold trinkets.

Crochet it with a thicker yarn and a larger hook and it becomes a nice felted bowl.
Yarn:  Noro Kureyon

But you may know someone who adores Halloween and prefers "awful" to "nice" any day.  The version embellished with body parts is just the thing.

Include a surprise inside:  internal organ wine charms.
