Apples for Teachers

Here are the 3 apple ornaments that I made for my sons' main teachers.  My 3 year old gave the one above to his teacher today.  The pattern came from Tasty Crochet.  I just modified it slightly to turn it into an ornament.  For the stem, I chained 40 stitches, slip stitched in the 9th chain (from the beginning), and single crochet the remaining 8 stitches.  For the leaves I chained 15 stitch, slip stitched into the first chain, chained 15 more stitches, slipped stitch into the first chain again, and bound off.  They turned out pretty cute.  The bottom two will be given to my other son's teachers on Monday.

  1. I love the tactile nature of these - I just want to grab one and toss it around.
