Here’s a big woolly version of my kids favourite snack.
- 7 mm hook. Best US equivalent would be K/10.5, though this will probably make for a slightly smaller finished piece.
- 1x 100g ball of Conway and Bliss Odin yarn in Coral (07) – Weight: Super Chunky
- 1x 50g ball of Drops Eskimo in Green (25) – Weight: Super Chunky
- Toy Stuffing
Note! The pattern is worked in spiral, so it’s a good idea to use a stitch marker to keep count of where each round begins and ends.
Rnd 1 Start by making a magic loop, ch 1, 8 htr in the loop
Rnd 2 2 htr in each stitch (16 sts)
Rnd 3 (1 htr, 2 htr in next st) 8 times. (24 sts)
Rnd 4 (1 htr in next 2 sts, 2 htr in next st) 8 times (32 sts)
Rnd 5 (1 htr in next 3 sts, 2 htr in next st) 8 times (40 sts)
Rnd 6 (1htr in next 4 sts, 2 htr in next st) 8 times (48 sts)
Rnd 7 (1 htr in next 5 sts, 2 htr in next st) 8 times (56 sts)
Rnd 8 – 12 1 htr in each st (56 sts)
Note! I use the invisible degrease stitch. When degreasing two stitches together, pick up only the front loops of the stitches. Use stitch markers if you find it hard to see where each of the degreases were made on the previous row.
Rnd 13 (deg2tog, 1 htr in the next 5 sts) 8 times (48 sts)
Rnd 14 (deg2tog, 1 htr in next 4 sts) 8 times (40 sts)
Rnd 15 (deg2tog, 1 htr in next 3 sts) 8 times (32 sts)
Note! At this point stuff the clementine with toy stuffing and keep stuffing as needed whilst you work each round till the end.
Rnd 16 (deg2tog), 1 htr in next 2 sts) 8 times (24 sts)
Rnd 17 (deg2tog), 1 htr in next st) 8 times (16 sts)
Rnd 18 deg2tog 9 times, then cut the yarn and pull it through the rest of the sts.
Fasten off and weave in ends.
Leaves for the Clementine
First make a small ‘base’ for where the leaves will be attached to.
Start by making a magic loop, ch1, 6 dc in the magic loop, ss to the first ch1 to close the round. Leave a long tail for sewing, cut the yarn and weave in the tail from the beginning.
Leafs (make 2)
Leave a long tail at the start for sewing.
Ch10, dc in the 2nd ch from the hook, htr, htr, htr, 2htr, htr, htr, dc, ss in the last ch. ch2, ss in 1st ch from the hook.
Turn work 180 degrees to work the following on the other side of the beg ch10:
ss in first st, dc, htr, htr, 2htr, htr, htr, htr, dc, ss to the tip of the leaf.
Cut the yarn and weave in the end.
When sewing the leaves to the center of the ‘base’, start by sewing the yarn through the stem of the leaf. Then sew the leaf onto the base from the tip of the stem.
Lastly sew the base on top of the clementine. Weave in all ends and you’re done.
