The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn and stuffing choices. You can make larger or smaller fruit by choosing a different yarn and matching hook.


Like all my fruit and vegetables, this onion is as realistic as possible. It is not just spherical but subtly shaped, and has a ragged top for a naturalistic look.

A quick pattern to work, using only basic stitches and very little finishing.

For an onion approximately 7cm in diameter you will need:

  • double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in approximately the following quantities: Main colour: 28m Root colour: 1.5m
  • a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
  • a stuffing material (details are provided in the pattern)
  • a blunt yarn needle
  • a ruler or tape measure

Available in both UK and US crochet terminology.

One of my range of matching fruit and vegetable patterns.

Important feature of my crochet patterns:

My 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!
