Apple jacket

On some list I am on, somebody posted a picture of a knitted "apple jacket". There was much laughter about it, but the apple jackets are selling for $18 each.

So I thought, what the heck, I bet I can crochet one. So I did. I used Lion Brand Nature's Choice cotton

I finally got around to taking a picture of it and posting it here. I haven't sold any, but I also haven't offered any for sale. I made the pattern up, so it's all mine;)

So if there are any requests, I'll write up the pattern and make it available. The apple in this jacket happens to be a large Gala apple which is going to be sacrificed shortly as a midday snack. It must be hard to be a model in the cruel world;)

Okay, don't tell the ladies in crochet snark, but I, personally, would love the pattern to make an apple cosy of my own :)

Same here... they're very cute, and actually somewhat functional... maybe... sort of?

I for one, would love to see the pattern!

I think it's a terrific idea, whether in knit or crochet. The crochet might actually have a bit more bulk, which would be nice if you've got the apple in a purse or other bag where it might get banged up. Reminds me of the styrofoam nets that are around fancy pears in the grocery store, but this is reusable. What's not to like?
