Amigurumi Big Apple Crochet Pattern

Big apple amigurumi

The idea of creating an amigurumi apple crochet pattern hit me instantly while I am cutting up the apples for the apple crumble muffins. If you’ve read my delicious apple crumble muffins recipe, you will notice a red apple in the photo, but that is the small apple I got the pattern from a book. I want something bigger, something like the size of a big Granny Smith Apple, juicy and delicious, so I came out with this design adapted from the small crochet apple pattern.

I am super excited to share this excellent apple crochet pattern with you. Not only that the Amigurumi Big Apple is great as a piece of home decor, but I also find that they are great to make into a pincushion.

This real looking big apple amigurumi was crochet using a fingering/baby yarn, and the size is 3″. You may change to bulkier yarn weight to make a larger apple or using finer lace thread to make a smaller one.

If you want to add some character to the amigurumi apple, here are a few ideas. For further development on this big apple amigurumi pattern, you may:
1. add a worm with its head sticking out from the apple.
2. Add eyes and a smiling mouth with a rosy cheek for a kawaii look.
3. Use rainbow color yarn to create a rainbow apple.
Do you have other ideas to add to the list?
