Apple Cozy / Jacket Knitting Pattern Tutorial

This was such a fun little project to knit up:) So quick using oddments of yarn…

This week is my Mamma4earth Etsy shop’s three year birthday, so I would like to share this apple cozy pattern with you to celebrate and because you are all so very kind to take the time to visit this spot and leave such heart warming words for me.

Enjoy the pattern:)

or
Four 4mm double pointed needles for knitting in the round
2 Double pointed needles for knitting the i-cord
Red yarn for the apple
Wool needle for sewing in the ends
Cute button:)

Cast on 10 stitches, join for knitting in the round, Magic Loop Technique, (or DPNs’ in the round)
Round 1: Knit
Round 2: Knit into the front and back of each stitch. (20 stitches)
Round 3: Knit.
Round 4: Knit into the front and back of each stitch. (40 stitches)
Rounds 5-15: Knit
Row 16: No longer knitting in the round, purl 2 together, purl the entire row, purl 2 together on the end. (38 stitches)
Row 17: Knit 2 stitches together, knit across row, knit 2 stitches together. (36 stitches)

From row 16 you are no longer knitting in the round, you are just knitting back and forth in rows as seen in the above photo.

Once you have cast off, pick up 2 stitches with your double pointed needles and knit an i-cord for a loop about 2 and a half inches long. (Just measure once you have sewn on your button to make sure of the length).

Sew the i-cord on to the top of the cozy where you picked up the 2 stitches and make a loop.

Sew in all your ends, sew on a sweet button opposite the loop, place an apple into your cozy and fasten the loop:)

You are finished!
Happy knitting

Apple Knitting Pattern Tutorial

Apples anyone?

Oh, I have been wanting to knit fruit and veggies for aaaaages! So finally, today, while Richard was driving around to all the shops, I started knitting this apple pattern in the car and now I have a  knitted apple pattern to share with you:) Do you ever take your knitting with in the car to knit while hubby is driving, just in case there could possibly be a knitting moment? I have a little project bag and note book that always goes with me whenever I leave our home:)

Enjoy the pattern, happy knitting…

Materials:
Red hand spun wool or DK
Merino fleece for stuffing
Brown wool for the stalk
Green wool for the leaf
Double pointed needles, 4mm
Size 4mm circular needles (if knitting in the round with the Magic Loop)
or
4 double pointed needles, 4mm (if knitting in the round)
Wool sewing up needle

Pattern:
Cast on 10 stitches, join for knitting in the round, Magic Loop Technique, (or DPNs’ in the round)
Round 1: Knit
Round 2: Knit into the front and back of each stitch. (20 stitches)
Round 3: Knit.

Continue with instructions below…

Stuff your apple while it is still on the needles, I like to see how the shape is forming… Leave a long thread, break the yarn and thread onto a wool needle. Thread the needle through the stitches on the needles, remove knitting needles and pull tight. You can now continue to stuff your apple from the base and once you are happy with the shape, sew the opening closed.

Now we want to create a depression on the top of your apple. With the needle and thread that you have just gathered all the stitches on and pulled tight, push it down into the apple from the top and out the base, pull until you see a depression on top and thne sew tightly at the base of your apple.

Here is my little apple among my cabbages with its little depression on top, see? 🙂

Every apple needs a stalk. Take your double pointed needle, pick up two stitches on the top of your apple and join the brown wool for the stalk. Knit your i-cord about an inch long and then cast off. Sew in all the ends.

So your apple can just be an apple with a stalk.

An apple with a leaf AND be a pincushion…
