This cute apple cozy is very quick and easy to crochet. Make for yourself or gift to friends and loved ones :) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY slip stitch, single crochet, half-double crochet, double crochet, decreasing, fpdc, bpdc and crocheting in front or back loops only. Instructions are given for fpdc and bpdc. GAUGE Size of finished item depends on crocheting tension, type/thickness of yarn used and size of crochet hook used. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS This cozy will fit an apple with diameter of about 2.6 inches/6.6cm at its broadest part. The two green ties will hold a smaller apple securely inside. I've made the ties to knot once only for convenience of taking out the apple. However, I've included instructions to increase the length of the ties if you prefer to knot them twice. Also, there is some stretch in the design and hence it can accomodate a bigger apple too!
