Like all my fruit and vegetables, this onion is designed to be as realistic as possible. It is not just spherical but subtly shaped, and has a ragged top for a naturalistic look.
These onions would make a fantastic kitchen decoration if you hang them in a bunch or as if plaited together, the way real onions are hung! They also make great toys for a play kitchen or veg garden!
This is a quick pattern to work, using only basic stitches and very little finishing. There is no back or front to the finished onion, and no visible seam – it looks great from all angles.
The onion is designed to be realistic and approximately life-sized when made in double-knitting (light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn, with a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook.
The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn quantities and types, and stuffing choices.
The patterns in UK and US crochet terminology are included - you can just choose whichever you prefer to use.

Important features of my crochet patterns: My crochet 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!
