I understand that this pattern may not be perfect so make sure you check out some of the comments from fellow knitters who have found mistakes with this pattern. Meanwhile, I am going to rework my patterns to make sure they are perfect. I will update them soon.
PS: If you need help with the double pointed needles situation, here is a video demonstration that may help:
Thank you, A
I just laid around and knitted all day. I made an apple to go with the pear that I made yesterday. I like making fruit people. I don't think that I will put arms and legs on them. Her name is Mrs. Saucy Apple.
I also have a pattern for all who want it.
here it is:
size 8 dpns.
red and green yarn- worsted weight (I used Wool of the Andes in Cranberry and Avocado)
puffy paint or yarn for embroidery
kfb around - 12
k1, kfb around- 18
k2, kfb around - 24
k3, kfb around - 30
k4, kfb around - 36
kfb 3 times - spread them out - 40
knit 8 rows
k9, k2tog, around
k8, k2tog, around
k4, k2tog, around
stuff your apple with scrap yarn or fiberfill
k3, k2tog, around
k2, k2tog, around
K1, k2tog, around
stuff the top a little more if you'd like
k2tog around - you should have 6 sts.
cut a long tail and pull through remaining sts. with your needle and put the needle into the center and through to the underside through the center. make sure that you pull tight so that it has a dimpled top like an apple. make a good knot.
make a leaf just like in the Mr. Pear pattern and an i-cord stem-sew them into the dimple and embroider and paint on her cute little face.
