Amigurumi Apples

June Gilbank 2010 Heres a realistic amigurumi apple: its not just a ball with a stalk attached, its actually the shape and size of a real apple! Give one to your (or your childs!) favourite teacher, make a bowlful in red and green as a decorative centrepiece, or add a pair of safety eyes and an embroidered smile to make a sweet-as-apple-pie toy

Do not join at the end of each round; rounds are worked in continuous spirals. Use a stitch marker to mark the beginning of each round. Move the marker up each time you start a new round.

ote: Your apple will look more like a lemon at the moment, but dont worry: that will all change in a moment!
Stalk

With brown or black yarn, ch 7. Row 1: sl st in 2nd chain from hook and in each remaining chain. (6 st) ote: I like to work into the back bumps of the chain, but you can work into the chain normally if you prefer. Cut yarn, leaving a long (approx 12/30cm) yarn end. Draw end through last loop and pull tight to fasten off.

Finishing

Using a yarn needle and the long yarn end from the apple, close up the remaining hole at the bottom of the apple. Use a finger to push the top of the apple down to form a dimple (dont worry if it wont stay in this position).

Make 3 small overlapping stitches at the bottom of the apple, to form an asterisk shape.

Cr

Using a yarn needle and the long yarn end from the stalk, pass the yarn through the apple from top middle to bottom middle, so the base of the stalk sits in the dimple at the top of the apple.

ea

Pass the yarn end through the apple, coming out somewhere along the apples side. Draw the yarn tight, and snip the end close to the apple. The yarn end should retract back inside the apple after it is cut.

Pass the yarn from the bottom up through the apple to the magic ring at the top centre, then insert the yarn needle at the top, one stitch away from where it exited the apple, and pass the yarn end back down through the apple to the bottom. Draw the yarn tighter until you like the shape and the top dimple stays in place. Knot the yarn at the bottom of the apple so it stays in this position (the knot will be covered later).

Pass the yarn end back up through the apple to the top. Knot the yarn end and the starting tail from the stalk together. Thread both ends onto the yarn needle and pass them through the apple, coming out somewhere along the apples side. Draw the yarn tight, and snip the ends close to the apple. The yarn ends should retract back inside the apple after they are cut.
