Does your apple need protection from thieves and other villians? If the answer is yes, then the Angry Apple Cozy is just the man you need. This tough hombre means business - and has the mustache to prove it. With this guy on your side, nobody will come between you and your apple a day. I worked this guy up last night and I'm really pleased with how he came out. And of course I'm sharing the pattern!



Angry Apple Cozy
designed by Kala Hotakainen

This fun and easy to crochet cozy is worked in the round in a continuous spiral - except for the mustache. The cozy doesn't take much yarn so feel free to stash dive for this project.


Yarn: 1 Skein of Knit Picks Shine Sport in Cherry

                 1 Skein of Knit Picks Shine Sport in Fedora

Hook: US F (4mm)

Gauge: 3 ½ sts/inch in sc in the round

Dimensions: When flat, the opening is 4 ½” wide and the cozy is 3 ½” tall. The Angry Apple Cozy fits a medium sized apple – the lovely model shown is my favorite apple, gala.

Abbreviations: ch = chain, sc = single crochet, sts = stitches, inc = increase (2 sc in one stitch), fo = fasten off

Instructions

Body:

With Cherry, ch 2
6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
Inc in each sc – 12 sts
*Inc, 1 sc* repeat across round - 18 sts
*Inc, 2 sc* repeat across round – 24 sts
Sc for 2 rounds
*Inc, 3 sc* repeat across round – 30 sts
Sc for 11 rounds
FO

Mustache:

With Fedora, ch 10
Work 2 rows of sc
FO

Finishing:

Weave in all ends. Sew the middle of the mustache to the body of the cozy, leaving the ends of the ‘stach free to blow in the wind. Embroider eyes, eyebrows, and mouth using Fedora. Put your Angry Apple Cozy to work!

hehe, he's perfect to balance all the cuteness in this board, and wow, his expression is pretty determined Smiley Great way to keep an apple from getting bumped.
