Grandma's apple

Apple crochet dishcloth



This crochet dishcloth is very easy to make, but you do have to pay attention to the rounds to make the stitches consistent to the pattern. It's more an 'apple slice' if you use white and green or red color for the edges. Another nice idea is to just crochet the apple all in green or all in red so the apple doesn't look like it is sliced. The loop would look nice in a wood color and the leaf a different green to the apple. But if you only have one green color yarn that will do.

Please let me know if there is a mistake in the pattern and I will try to fix it.
Crochet stitches are American stitches.
