A Crochet Apple


I ended up writing my own pattern for the cute apples I made to accompany my Pirum Parum pears (pattern by Tournicote). I am very happy with my apples' size and shape - I wanted them to look like a real apple with a tapered bottom and a dimple at the top, and just the perfect size to match the pears too. Using 8 ply (DK weight) yarn and a 4mm hook this apple is approximately 13cm tall from the bottom to the tip of the leaf. Roughly the same size as a real life large apple!


This sweet apple pattern is now available in my Etsy shop - it only costs $3.50 Australian ($2.50 US at the time of writing) so it won't break the bank, and is a good starter amigurumi project.


*** Please note: this pattern was available as a free tutorial in this post for a limited time, and is now available to purchase in my shop. I have made improvements and revisions to the pattern since publishing the free version, and the purchased pattern also comes with a licence to sell the finished apples ***

  3. I love your apple and pear. I really do!
    I have made the pear, only much bigger.

    I have been asked for the pattern by several. May I publish the pattern for a bigger pear on my danish blog? I will link back to you, off course.

  4. Arhh, this is so cute. I've only crocheted a giant granny square blanket and a scarf so far but I'd love to have a go at something like this when I'm feeling braver :)

    1. Hi Helene, I normally use 8ply / DK weight yarn for my amigurumi and I prefer cotton or acrylic over wool (less fuzzy and smoother finish). But it's a personal choice entirely. You can also use worsted weight / 12 ply yarn if you prefer, the finished apple would be a little bigger than mine. Hope this helps!
