Size & Gauge:
Size: The apple will end up being 2.5″ tall x 3″ wide – a realistic size for an apple.
Gauge: 4”x4” of single crochet = 28 stitches x 30 rows. Ultimately with toys, gauge doesn’t matter. It won’t have to fit someone’s body or a specific space. My patterns will include the size of the finished toy based on the yarn and hook I use. But if you want it smaller or bigger, just use a bigger yarn and hook! Just remember, when crocheting toys, crochet tightly and choose a hook one size smaller than the yarn size recommends in order to avoid holes between each stitch where the stuffing will show through.
I’d love to see your finished apples! Post pics on instagram and tag me @offthebeatenhook. Enjoy!
