Pattern Description:

I made this little guy for a friend of mine, just for kicks. It seemed like she was always either toting tomatoes around to share with folks or she was talking about them. So when her birthday rolled around, I simply couldn't resist making her a tomato - an everlasting one! I wished her a year full of delicious tomatoes, but then she didn't plant any the next growing season, so it was a good thing she had the ami'mater around to keep her company.
This would be a great beginning amigurumi project because of its simplicity and it even makes a fun cat toy if you stuff it with a little catnip. Just don't expect it to be everlasting if you share it with a pet!

Gauge:

Gauge is not terribly important to this project, but I recommend using a crochet hook that is two to three sizes smaller than suggested on whatever yarn you choose to use because it helps create tighter stitches and allows for fuller stuffing.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • About 3" Wide

Materials:

  • Caron Simply Soft or Similar Yarn
  • E/3.5mm Crochet Hook
  • 6mm Black Plastic Safety Eyes (optional)
  • 100% Premium Polyester Fiberfill
  • Scissors
  • Small Darning Needle

I've been crafting in one way or another since my mother first allowed me to use scissors. College and a few years in the Army slowed me down quite a bit, but I picked the crochet hook back up in earnest in 2009 and I haven't looked back!
