Hi everyone, I've been lurking this board for 2 years but this is my first post here.
I'd like to ask if anyone would help me crochet a peach shape. I started crocheting about 3 months ago. I'm familiar with the basic stitches and techniques and am beginning to make my own patterns, but I can't seem to figure out how to do this peach shape correctly.
I'm trying to make a Peach Longevity Bun (pastry in the shape of a peach that wishes long life, commonly served to elders in the Chinese tradition) for my grandma's 76th birthday. Here are some reference pictures:http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_7l_Y6Ap-VgM/R9l0EA2xcrI/AAAAAAAAAeI/cshGImPgjok/s400/IMG_1216.JPGhttp://1.bp.blogspot.com/_XwlZ2HSb7ug/RwoLY6aREvI/AAAAAAAAAu0/-eNx81zhkko/s400/DSC01419.JPG
I can make the leaves just fine, but the peach shape really throws me off. Would anyone be able to help me with this? Please let me know what I can do for you in return, thank you!
