Get your daily dose of Vitamin Yarn with Twinkie Chan’s newest food-themed creations: crocheted fruits and veggies! These nine delicious (in)edible designs are perfect for those days when you want to feel healthy, but don’t necessarily want to eat healthy.
Eat Your Fruits & Veggies Crochet-Along
Part 1:Crocheted Potato
You’ve never seen a cuter potato than one designed by Twinkie Chan. Using a basic cylindrical pattern, Twinkie first talks you through the crochet construction, then demonstrates how embroidery can be used to turn a tube into a tuber.
Part 4:Crocheted Apple
Tart and sweet, Twinkie Chan’s crocheted apple uses minimal shaping for maximum effect. A tiny stem and leaf add fresh-picked details. You know what they say about an apple a day, so don’t hedge your bets – make one now!
Part 5:Crocheted Eggplant
A green stem and leaves makes the purple pop on this mid-sized veggie. Whether you call it “eggplant” or “aubergine,” this firm-fleshed nightshade is an unexpectedly adorable addition to your family of crocheted produce.
Part 7:Crocheted Broccoli
Broccoli is the undeniable king of the cruciferous – a nutrition packed (or in this case, poly-filled) veggie. Worked with two shades of green using elementary crochet stitches, these bite-sized florets can be stitched up quickly.
Part 8:Crocheted Tomato
A bit of red yarn, a scrap of green, and some stuffing are all you need to make nature’s favorite fruit-disguised-as-a-vegetable. Sew long stitches after shaping to create a vintage effect, reminiscent of Grandma’s pincushion.
Part 9:Crocheted Pineapple
Long considered a symbol of welcome and comfort, this crocheted pineapple is perfect for the ambitious beginner. The body is worked using two colors of yarn, leaves are stitched in two sizes, then Twinkie walks you through artful assembly and the importance of sturdy stitching.
