I made about a dozen of these tiny apples in just a few hours...They are great gifts, and look very sweet as a necklace  Wink  Make yourself a bushel, and let me know how they turn out! 






You will need:
red or green yarn for the apple
brown yarn for the stem
a green yarn for the leaf
size G crochet hook
stuffing
yarn needle

Abbreviations used:
ch=  chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
ss = slip stitch
inc = increase (do 2 single crochets in one stitch)
dec = decrease ( insert hook into first stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, insert hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through the two loops on your hook)

APPLE:
Rnd 1:  Ch 2.  Sc 6 into the second st from the hook.
Rnd 2:  sc twice into each st (12 sts)
Rnd 3:  *sc one st, sc twice in next st, repeat from *  (18 sts)
Rnd 4-7:  sc around
Rnd 8:  *sc one st, sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (12 sts)
Rnd 9:  *sc2tog (dec), repeat from * (6 sts)
Cut yarn, leaving a long tail for sewing.  Weave the tail through the remaining stiches and pull tight. Pull the yarn through the center of the apple and secure at the bottom to make the dimple.  This will give it a nice, appley shape.

LEAF:
Rnd 1: Ch 2, sc twice into the second st from the hook, turn
Rnd 2: Sc twice into both sts (4 sts), turn
Rnd 3: Sc2tog across (2 sts), turn
Rnd 4: Sc2tog, cut a long tail, and pull the yarn through the remaining stitch

STEM:
Starting with a long tail, ch 8, then join the ends with a slip stitch. Cut a long tail, and pull it through the remaining stitch. This makes a nice little loop that can be threaded onto a cord as a charm.   

ASSEMBLY:
Sew the leaf onto the apple.  Position the stem, then pull both tails through to the bottom of the apple.  Pull tight, and tie a nice, strong knot.  Weave in the ends. 

There you go- it's that easy!!  Let me know if you have any questions and I'd be happy to help  Cheesy

There will always be people who say mean words  because you are different, and sometimes their minds cannot be changed. There are many more people who do not judge others based on how they look or where they are from. THOSE are the people whose WORDS truly matter.
