This banana is intended to be as lifelike as possible, and is worked end to end (rather than in the round) to create a realistic look to the banana skin.
For an approximately life-sized banana (15cm or 6") you will need:
- 20m (22yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in yellow.
- 1.5m (2yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in brown or green.
- a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
- a small quantity of stuffing material
- a yarn needle
This pattern is available in UK, US and French versions - you can choose whichever you prefer to use.
Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include both a detailed 'tutorial-style' set of instructions with colour photos, and a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions - the best of both worlds!
