This pepper is intended to be as lifelike as possible, with a gentle tapering body and naturalistic bulgy top. For an approximately 9cm tall pepper you will need:
- 30m of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in main colour.
- 5m of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in green.
- a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
- a stuffing material (details are provided in the pattern)
- a blunt yarn needle
The pattern includes notes on varying the pattern so if you are making more than one pepper, they can be different.
Please see my page for more matching fruit and vegetables.
Both UK and US crochet patterns are included.
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!
All my patterns come with full support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me.
