Introducing my Avocado knitting pattern. The avocado is also known as an alligator pear. Botanically it is a large berry with a single seed, but is usually treated as a vegetable because of its savoury flavour. My avocado has two halves; one half has a hollow and the other a stone so you can fit them together. Knitted veggies are super toys to encourage little ones to eat veg and greens, or you can use them as decorative items in your home. My veggies are worked flat, but most pieces could easily be converted to knitting in the round if that is your preference. You will also need to cast on and off, knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and sew seams.
- The pattern is 5 pages and written in English.
- Instructions for making the avocado.
- Measurements are metric.
Materials you need at home:
