This beautifully-presented plastic-free crochet kit contains everything you need to make the pair of fruit, including a cute leaf:
- 6-page fully-illustrated pattern printed on recycled paper
- organic cotton yarn
- 100% natural British sheep’s wool stuffing
- 3.5mm bamboo crochet hook (optional)
- blunt-tipped yarn needle
- gift tag up-cycled from cereal packets, greetings cards, etc
The pattern is worked with a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook (or the size you need to make a compact crochet fabric with the given yarn). I offer lovely bamboo crochet hooks by Pony if you don’t have one or are giving the kit as a gift.
The finished fruit are approximately 5.5cm in diameter.
