Thank you, A
I just laid around and knitted all day. I made an apple to go with the pear that I made yesterday. I like making fruit people. I don''t think that I will put arms and legs on them. Her name is Mrs. Saucy Apple.
I also have a pattern for all who want it.
here it is:
Materials: size 8 dpns. red and green yarn- worsted weight (I used Wool of the Andes in Cranberry and Avocado) stuffing yarn needle puffy paint or yarn for embroidery
CO 6 kfb around - 12 k k1, kfb around- 18 k k2, kfb around - 24 k k3, kfb around - 30 k k4, kfb around - 36 k kfb 3 times - spread them out - 40 k knit 8 rows k9, k2tog, around k k8, k2tog, around k k4, k2tog, around k stuff your apple with scrap yarn or fiberfill k3, k2tog, around k k2, k2tog, around k K1, k2tog, around k stuff the top a little more if you''d like k2tog around - you should have 6 sts. cut a long tail and pull through remaining sts. with your needle and put the needle into the center and through to the underside through the center. make sure that you pull tight so that it has a dimpled top like an apple. make a good knot.
make a leaf just like in the Mr. Pear pattern and an i-cord stem-sew them into the dimple and embroider and paint on her cute little face.
I came to your blog for your apple pattern (I''m making it as a wedding gift my friend is doing her kitchen in apples so I''m giving this to her as a ring holder by the sink and make the stem to safely tie her rings on)And I see The Beatles! My daughter is named after a Beatles song... Prudence. Not to mention I''m often tested for Chrone''s. I feel like I hit a lucky find!
this pattern is way wrong but somehow it still comes out looking right at least mine did
k4, kfb around - 36 k kfb 3 times - spread them out - 40 wouldent that equal 39? also i did not do 8 rows of st stitch and im glad i dident i did 6 this is no small apple and i did it on 7''s just a heads up to the pattern writter
