Growing up, September always brought apple picking at an orchard in Weston, Missouri. Every year my mom, brother, and I would spend the day picking apples and eating their fresh treats. We brought that into my adult years and would go with my brother and mom and my oldest son. And then, we transitioned from that apple orchard to the one across the road, it was more of a pumpkin patch. My point is, I love apple picking season.
Sadly, there’s no such thing in this part of Texas, or if any part of Teas – I’m not sure they can grow apple trees down here? I looked and looked for one last year and couldn’t find any. There is the arboretum and little pumpkin patches but nothing that rivals the amazing apple orchards of Missouri and my youth. But even so, I still love September and look back fondly on those memories that date back to my little kid days.
When I stumbled upon a beautiful apple kit by Flax and Twine it sparked an interest in me to crochet an apple. or several! I needed a free pattern though so I went on the hunt for a free apple pattern, which I found at Grace and Yarn.
I decided on skipping the face and just making it into a generic apple. But the pattern was perfect and made a sweet red apple, which was quickly snatched up by my youngest son.
I have dreams of making several in different colors and adding them to a clear bowl for my kitchen for the month of September. Will I make the time for that? I don’t know but it’s a great idea! ha!
This pattern was SUPER simple to understand. I recommend it if you’re a beginner. Check out the free pattern.
