I am loving the Boston Sun chunky yarn I’m using lately however, it’s limited in colour choices. That’s ok, how cute are these fruity buddies?
They all came from different patterns.
Watermelon: The watermelon is loosely based on a free pattern I found on Ravelry. You can find it here. If you’re familiar with crochet terms, the original pattern has you do a base chain of 31 stitches (which was HUGE with the yarn I was using.) I am not great with sizing down patterns but I made this watermelon with a base chain of 15. As you can see, it got a little wonky towards the top! I also added in a row of white – the original pattern doesn’t have that. So…not exactly my best piece but probably good enough for a baby to play with! If anyone out there has any tutorials or tips on how to adjust patterns correctly, please send them my way.
Orange/Clementine: To make this little clementine I used the same pattern that I used for the Two Peas in a Pod that I made recently. I did the magic ring in green and the rest in orange. Piece of cake.
Strawberry: I got the free strawberry pattern from a blog with the address “moist crocheted vagina.” HAHA! Although the blog has a little potty mouth, I find it hilarious and the patterns are great! She has a lot of free play food patterns. You can find the strawberry pattern here.
