Add a touch of cottage chic to your favorite space with this lovely accent pear. Whether you are looking for a quick gift or planning a dinner party, and you want to add your own personal touch, we're sure that you will agree that this crochet pattern for the Pear Accent is a great way to use up those leftover bits of luxury yarn. The crochet pattern calls for 1/3 of a skein of Knit Picks Gloss Fingering Yarn, but some alternate yarns that I have tried are Patons Lace, Patons Grace, Sirdar Flirt and Lion Brand Vanna's Glamour.
