Banana Appliqué

Pin It

By JC Designs
  They would be great for applying to any projects or as home decor for example decorating kitchen curtains, dishcloths, etc. or making them into fridge magnets.

SIZE
The banana measures approx. 2.5” inches long but size can vary based on yarn and hook size.

MATERIALS
*Crochet hook size: 3.0mm
*Worsted weight yarn: small amounts of yellow and nude
*Felt: Black
*Hot Glue
*Tapestry Needle

PATTERN NOTES
  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

BANANA BOTTOM PART (yellow)
  Row 1: ch9, dc in 4th ch from hook (skip chs count as one dc), dc in next 4chs, 2sc in next ch, other side of the chs dc in next 6chs (14)
  Row 2: ch 6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and into the next 4chs, sl st across, ch6, sl st in 2nd ch from hook and into the next 4chs, continue to sl st around the banana see image below

BANANA TOP PART (nude)
  Row 1: ch 9 (9)
  Row 2: dc in 4th ch from hook (skip chs count as one dc), dc in next 4chs, 2sc in next ch, other side of the chs dc in next 6chs (14)
F/O, secure and weave in ends.

ASSEMBLY
  This is really easy. Simply sew the top part behind the bottom part. Cut a triangular shape from black felt and sew/glue it in place at the bottom of the banana.
  If your going to make it into a fridge magnet glue a small magnet in the back.
I made them into fridge magnets to hold my son's (he's 5years old) masterpieces. :)

Have a nice crochet time!
