Free Crochet Pattern – Orange

Free Crochet Pattern – Orange

Don't you just love fruit? Crochet fruit might not taste delicious. But instead, it can be used as decoration or be given to your kids for playing with. This pattern is one of four available fruit patterns on this blog: Apple, Pear, and Banana. Click here to get to the pattern!

Orange Is The Happiest Color

Frank Sinatra once said that Orange is the happiest color. He might be right,. Orange is my son’s favorite color so at least he gets happy about it. Oranges are orange (obviously), cheese doodles are orange (LOVE them), and traffic cones are orange (wait, whaat?!).
Enough with the jiddisch!

This pattern is one of four available fruit patterns on this blog. Check them out here:

Apple, Pear, and Banana.

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.

    Your post made me smile. My grandmother taught me how to crochet when I was a teenager .. and it’s something I’ve taken up in spurts as I’ve gotten older. I love the fun fruit patterns .. I’m thinking it’s time to pass the baton and teach my granddaughter.

      It can be your new family tradition, to teach your granddaughters 🙂 Too bad for your daughter though who doesn’t get to learn 😛
