Free Crochet Pattern – Amigurumi Apple
Five Apples A Day Keeps The Doctor Away
A few weeks ago I was contacted by a woman on Instagram. She asked if I could crochet some fruit for her daughter. I’ve been crocheting for a couple of years now. And I’ve crochet eatable things before, but most often in the form of cookies or cakes. But hey, it’s always fun to crochet something new, so of course I said yes! And now, it’s time for me to share this pattern with you.
The pattern is crochet around in a spiral, without closing the laps. Insert a marker (such as a piece of yarn in a contrasting color) in the first stitch of the row. This makes it easier to see where the laps begin and end.

Fasten off but leave a long piece of yarn for sewing. Sew the hole shut and pull the yarn through the apple, from bottom to the top of the apple, and then down again. The apple should now have two small pits at the top and the bottom. Fasten off and weave in end.
Using brown yarn:
Row 1: 2 sc in second ch from hook and in the last ch (4 sts)
Row 2: Crochet in a circle, 1 sc in each stitch. (4)
Row 3-4: Sc 4
Row 5: Dec 1 two times (2)
Cut the thread and sew the stem at the top of the apple. Secure all loose ends.
How did it go? Did you finish your apple or do you need some guidance? If you’re a beginner needing help, just shoot me an email or leave a comment below. If you’re a long-time crocheter, you probably took one look at the image and didn’t even need to read the pattern!
As I mentioned above, I didn’t keep this apple for myself. I shipped it off to a little girl somewhere in the woods of Sweden. Are you going to keep your apple to yourself, or is it a gift for someone?
