TUTORIAL: Apple Cozy



Materials Needed:
-Size H Crochet Hook
-Worsted Weight Yarn (I used
Peaches & Creme 4 Ply 100% Cotton Yarn)
-Wooden Button
-Sharp Needle to sew the button on

Notes:
-Be sure to crochet over your loose ends as you go along so you won't have as many to weave in when you are finished.
-Gauge: 6 sts and 5 rows = 2" (5 cm) If your gauge is not right, go up or down a size crochet hook in order to get the right gauge.
-All apples are a different size, this pattern is written for an average size apple. If you have a very small, or very large apple, you can move up or down a crochet hook size so that your cozy will fit your apple.

Instructions:

Ch 4, join with a sl st to form a ring
 

Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 12 hdc in the ring, join with a sl st to the first hdc (12 hdc)

Edging:
With Green yarn, join with a sl st in the same st where you just fastened off.



 Ch 1, sc in the same st 2 times


Ch 15

sl st in the previous st

Now, sc evenly around the edge of the apple cover untill you get to the top of the "U".



Here is where we will crochet the 2 leaves. Do not fasten off.

 ch 7, sc in the 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, dc in each of next 3 ch, sc in the last ch, ch 1, sc in the last st again.

Now working on the opposite side, dc in each of next 3 sts, hdc in next st, sc in next st, sl st into the first st

Now, sl st down the center of your leaf,


ch 1, sc in next st


Now, repeat to make one more leaf. Start with the ch 7.


Now, continue to sc around the rest of your apple cover edge. Join with a sl st to the first sc, fasten off.


Sew your button on. I used a wooden 7/8" button, but you can use whatever size you would like. Just make sure it is in the right spot before you start sewing :)


Weave in your loose ends, and you are finished!

I think it would be fun to try making this in a bunch of different colors.  Enjoy your Apple Cozy!

  2. Great pattern - thanks for sharing!!! ...Going to make several more.

    Just a quick note - perhaps from row 5 and on, when you mark the st count, you mean, for example, 26 sts instead of 26 hdc?

    Thanks again!

Notes:

The gauge doesn't matter so much for this pattern because you aren't making an article of clothing that needs to fit someone.  I do tend to crochet very tight (tighter than normal) when I am making amigurumi so that the stuffing doesn't show through.  But, if you want your t…

TUTORIAL: Doll Diaper plus Pattern!

This weekend I made diapers for my little girl's doll.  I probably made more than she needs, but it was so much fun to watch her face light up as I got each one of them finished! 
I designed the pattern to fit her Bitty Baby Doll.  But, I also realize that some of you may have a different size doll....  So, I made the waistband adjustable.  It may not fit all of your dolls and stuffed animals, but this will make it more likely to.


I wanted it to be a nice and tight fit so that we could fit the doll's pants over the diaper, and it worked out well!

Today I am excited to share the tutorial with you.  Here is what you will need: 1/4 yard or a fat quarter of cotton fabric.  Coordinating thread 1/2" sew in Velcro.  I have tried the stick on kind, and didn't like it.  It eventually comes off.  If you try to sew it on, it will gum up your needle and the needle will have to be replaced.  I highly recommend the sew in kind that is not sticky. Before starting, you will need …

TUTORIAL: American Girl Crochet Hat

Lately, I have been having so much fun making my girls clothes for their dolls.  My latest project was these cute crochet hats.  They fit nice and tight, and I love the way they look on the dolls.  I am sharing the pattern with you today so that you can make a few for your dolls too!

The yarn I used for this hat I purchased online from Fabric.com.  It is called Cotton Classic Yarn.  They have changed their website up a bit and I haven't been able to find it recently, so I am not sure if they are still selling it.  This is my favorite yarn for crocheting Doll hats, so I hope I can find some more in the future.
