Cath Kidston-inspired Fruit Bowl

Hand-crocheted fruit arrangement in pastel coloursI’ve just completed this set of crocheted fruit in a colour palette inspired by the fabrics of Cath Kidston.

Her designs (the fabric pictures in this blog are all Cath Kidston’s) are an instantly-recognisable mixture of pastels and bolder red and pink accents.

So I took my lovely organic cotton, and my realistic fruit crochet patterns (available for instant download in my Etsy shop and Ravelry page) and worked out how best to switch the colours.

The grapes are a new design I developed for this set, so you won’t have seen them here before. I’m going to add them to my range, though, because they are just irresistible in making a picturesque still-life! They are quite a deal of work however, as you can probably imagine!

You had a glimpse of the perfectly pink pears on my previous blog where the pears took over! But they look very at home now in a bowl with their friends.

Adding the red leaves was the last step, and I think they really make this set, lifting it from pure pastels to something just a little bit funky!

I’d love to know what you think of this slight departure from my naturalistic fruit and vegetable range. Send me a tweet to let me know!
