Amigurumi Fruit

IMG_5980

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.

To finish off all my projects I learned “the ultimate finish” technique from Planet June.  She also has a great tutorial with how to embroider on faces here.

Happy Crochet’ing
