Well happy summer everyone! I apologize for my neglect during these past few months, but my goodness I am having such a wonderful time :) Hubby and the girls and I have had a great summer this year, lots of fun and excitement. I have been crocheting and knooking, but haven't had much computer time to share any posts. I have completed a very cute hedgehog pillow, progressed quite nicely on an afghan and even started knooking a pair of socks! Again I could go on and on about how great the knook is. I went on to Etsy and bought some smaller knooks so that I could make socks and mittens with real intricate knitting patterns! This has brought much joy to my life lol.
At the beginning of summer on a lazy hot and humid day, I sat with a steaming hot and delicious cup of black coffee ( I prefer Folgers), waking up and surfing Ravelry <3. My oldest daughter was sitting with me and she seen a very cute and simple creation, an apple cozy. She just fell in love with it. She almost immediately began insisting that I absolutely must make this for her teachers. With summer vacation already started, it was too late to give this as an end of school year gift, so I suggested giving them to the teachers as a Welcome Back from summer gift. She really liked that idea, and I like the twist on the classic leaving an apple on the teacher's desk.
This is a free pattern that I found online. I tried a few different ones, but this one looked the best when finished. There is an optional leaf attachment in the pattern, but I decided not to use it this time, I don't have the right color green on hand. But it is really cute.
Crafty-Anna. This quick little project only took me a couple of hours to finish. I plan on making at least 6 more. I highly recommend this one. I used Bernat Handicrafter yarn and an H hook. It fits an average size apple. The pattern is easily adaptable to make a smaller or larger cozy.
Thanks for looking and Happy Hooking!
