You’ve met big pear…

October 11, 2012 by Peter

..now meet big apple! (and me!)

Big apple, Peter and big pear

Well, actually I named them Mr. Pear and Mr. Apple. And of course Ms. Worm. <3

As I explained in my earlier post, I used the apple pattern out of Ana Paula’s first book, and enlarged it. I used some chunkier yarn, but it was a bit thinner than the yarn from Mr. Pear, so instead of multiply the pattern 2.5 times, I did it 3 times. It’s a bit of a challenge to get I right (for example, Ms. Worm had a earlier version where she had eaten a bit to much of Mr. Apple, if you know what I mean. ;) ) but I think they turned out great!

After I finished Mr. Apple, the large Amigurumi toys can’t leave my mind… I’m already working on another one, which I will post about as soon as I finish it. So stay tuned! ;)

    Wow! These are seriously cute! Ever thought of selling the patterns for these big pear and apple, since you have modified the pattern and added in your own creation?

      Thank you so much! :D
      No, because it’s so much based on Ana Paula’s pattern, I wouldn’t write a pattern of it. :)
      As you can read in the blog post, I just multiplied the pattern, and adjusted a bit when the shape wasn’t right. I think everyone who can crochet the original pattern, can crochet their own big ones. :) So, if you would like your own pair… you can do it! You can always ask me when you’ve got troubles.
