Materials:
– Red yarn/medium
– Brown yarn/medium
– Crochet hook size G/4mm
– Green felt
– Yarn Needle
(use a stitch marker – safety pin or piece of yarn – to place at the end of your rows)

Abbreviations:
sc = single crochet
st = stitch(es)
rep = repeat
inc = increase
dec = decrease

BALL:
Rnd 1:  make a chain with 2 stitches, 6 sc in second stitch from chain (6)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each st around (12)
Rnd 3: 1 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (18)
Rnd 4: 2 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (24)
Rnd 5: 3 sc, 1 inc, rep 6 times (30)
Rnd 6 to 11: sc in each st around (30)
Rnd 12: 3 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (24)
Rnd 13: 2 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (18)  Start stuffing
Rnd 14: sc in each st around (18)
Rnd 15: 1 sc, 1 dec, rep 6 times (12) Finish stuffing
Rnd 16:  dec in each st around (6)

Fasten off, with a needle thread, weave in the 6 remaining stitches and pull tight to close. hide the remaining thread in the ball. (this side is the bottom of the apple)

Now, take a long piece of red yarn and needle, insert  it from the top of the apple to the bottom, weave it back to the top, pull both thread to make the bottom go inward, and make a tight knot.  Weave the yarn back into the bottom the same way, pull, and make a another knot. This will give your apple its shape.

STEM – with brown yarn
Rnd 1:  make a chain with 7 stitches (make sure to leave a long thread)
Rnd 2:  6 slip st, fasten off.

Use the threads to attach the steam to the apple. weave the remaining yarn in the apple, and cut.

 Leaves:
Just take a piece of green felt, cut into leaves shapes, one big and one small.  Glue to the top with a glue gun, or fabric glue.

If you want to make this really fun, you can glue some goggly eyes and make a mouth with a yarn thread. This one was made with safety  eyes, which you would pin before finishing the ball.
