2nd Day Of Halloween: Crochet Apple Pattern

crochet apple featured image

Welcome to day 2 of the 13 Day’s Of Halloween! I’ve got a sweet treat today in the form of a crochet apple. So you should probably be on the look out for a trick… But not today so you can relax and make this scrumptious looking apple… For now.

So, at some point you’re probably going to look at your work and go, “How the heck does this look like an apple?” But trust the pattern, all will become clear by the time you’re done.

Your finished apple should measure at about 3 inches wide and 2 1/2 inches tall. Therefore, I would consider this crochet apple life sized, as it would be about the size of a medium sized apple. I chose a dark, slightly poisonous looking green color, because… well why not? But feel free to make it whatever color you like! (please not pink.. jk!.. kinda… Do whatever you want.)

Now, let’s get started on our crochet apple!

Supplies

  • Green yarn or whatever you prefer
    • I used Premier yarns Just Yarn Worsted in the color Leaf Green
  • *Brown yarn or whatever you prefer
    • I used Premier Just Cotton in the color Earth
  • F/3.75 mm hook
  • Snips
  • A yarn or tapestry needle

*You won’t need much of the brown yarn, it’s just for the stem and a long tail to secure it.

Abbreviations

  • Mc = Magic Circle
  • St = stitch
  • sc = Single crochet
  • slst = slip stitch

Cut the end leaving a 12 inch tail, tie off the end, and weave the tail through the last 6 sts using a yarn needle. Cinch the opening closed and then go around again to secure it.

Shape your crochet apple!

Use the tail to go through the center of the apple body, and out the other side. Catch a stitch towards the center and go back the way you came. tighten the thread down so you get an apple shape. then go back and forth through the center to secure the shape and the end.

Crochet Apple Stem

Make a ch 6 leaving an 8 inch tail to start.

Put a sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, put 1 sc in the remaining sts.

Cut the tail at 8 inches.

Weave both tails through the apple making sure you have the stem where you want the top to be.

Tie the ends together in a knot a couple times to make the bottom bit. Weave the remaining tails into the apple to hide them.

Just smush the apple around until you’re happy with the shape once you’re done weaving and cutting the ends.

What to do, What to do…

Now that you have completed your crochet apple, I have some ideas of what to do with it.

  • Use them in a bowl as decoration, instead of wax or plastic fruit.
  • I can say from experience, that they are quite nice to throw at people if the need arises. Why wait for a snowball fight when you have crochet apples?
  • How about a game? Just click on the button below to download the instructions I made for a game of Poison Apple! (my own creation)
  • Take a picture and post it on Instagram and tag me in it so I can see it! I’ll share your post in my story!
