Part two of the crochet fruit pattern series!
Making crochet fruit is one of the easiest ways to kickstart your amigurumi collection. Most (like this banana pattern) are worked in one continuous piece and don't require much sewing--so its great practice for moving onto bigger pieces! Plus, what better way to get your vitamins? *ha*
This pattern is one of 5 crochet fruit patterns that will be shared with you all, so stay on the lookout for the rest by subscribing to our newsletter (do so by scrolling down to the bottom of the Home page)!
These amigurumi fruits are perfect for replacing boring, traditional fake fruit bowls--think of the excitement on your house guests' faces when they discover these awesome plush fruit pieces! They will be asking you to make them a set for their own homes!
Total time to make is about 30 min, so make one or make a whole bunch!
