Free Crochet Pattern – Banana
Tally Me Bananas
I really enjoy crocheting amigurumi. Fruit and cookies are a lot of fun to make but I’m not fond of projects that take weeks to finish, though. Crochet blankets are beautiful, but they take forever to finish. But amigurumi projects, you can usually finish quickly and they are so pretty.
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.
