You don’t need plastic knights and bishops to teach your kids how to play chess. This handmade Crochet Chess Set from Anthropologie is a sweeter way to show them special moves and secret strategies. With hand-crocheted pieces and a blue felted chessboard, it looks like something Grandma would make, and it’s destined to become a family heirloom. Because the entire game is lightweight and fits into a cotton bag, it’s easy to travel with too.
