How to make crochet apples
*Category 4 yarn in apple color, leaf color and brown stem color.
Apples shown are made with big twist cotton cranberry, red heart soft in dark leaf and Lion brand heartland in mammoth cave.
*4mm or 4.5mm crochet hook
Make body of apple: Create magic ring. Chain 3, work 12 dc into ring and close. Chain 3 (does not count as stitch)
Round 1: Work 2 dc into each stitch . 24 sts
Round 2: ch 3 (this is for height and does not count as a stitch) Work 1 dc, then 2 dc. Alternate around to end and slip to join. 36 sts.
Round 3: follow instructions in graphic.

I designed knit and crochet project trackers! Keep track of your cardigan pattern with this tracker.
This is the large print version for tired eyes. So much easier than using apps, scraps of paper or a plain notebook.
Three project sizes, a handy ruler and hook guide inside the cover and plenty of room for notes in each pattern.
Buy the Large print project tracker.
Buy the regular size print project tracker.
I have had bad eyesight since age 18 so large print is a godsend when you can’t see apps and dark yarn, let alone going from one to the other on a crochet-a-thon during a Netflix binge.
Hdc into second ch from hook.
Now you will work back up the other side of the chain.
sc(skip making this sc if you want that pixied tip, work it if you want a more balanced leaf)
slip to join.
Attach leaf base near stem allowing tapered side to float free.
