Apple and Cherries and Coconuts! Oh My!

Our animal crossing fruit patterns are coming to and end! I’ll definitely miss making these little cuties, but who’s to say I won’t just make a whole bunch? Our last 2 are the apple and cherries, let’s get to it!

Materials

  • 2.75 mm hook
  • yarn needle
  • polyfil
  • Yarn in Red, Yellow and dark brown – I used I Love This Cotton in Red, Curry and Brown

Stitches

  • magic circle (mc)
  • single crochet (SC)
  • increase (inc) two stitches in the same stitch
  • decrease (dec) – bringing two stitches together
  • slip stitch

Cherries (make 2)
Rnd 1.  MC. 6sc (6)
Rnd 2.  Inc x 6 (12)
Rnd 3. (sc, inc) x 6 (18)

Rnd 6. (sc, dec) x 6 (12)
Rnd 7. (dec) x 6 (6)
FO and sew in ends.

Stem
The stem is a little complicated. We’re going to work it all together. The alternative is to create your own chain, then reattach in the middle to make the branch stem.
Ch 19. sl st in the 2nd chain from the hook. Sl st x 7, ch 3, sl st in the 2nd chain from the hook, sc in the next, , sc in the next stitch of the main chain, ch 4, HDC in the 2nd chain from the hook, HDC in the next 2 stitches, sl st back to the original chain and all the way to the end. Sew each end of your stem to one of the cherries. To keep your cherries together, you can also stitch them together.

Oops! I excitedly posted the box of finished fruits to reddit and quickly found out that I had underestimated the love for the coconuts! So, in true AHA fashion, we made one on stream! Here’s your coconut pattern!
