Aren't turnips beautiful! This crochet copy of nature's design has shading on the root and three different, naturally uneven leaves. No visible seams or front/back - it looks great from all angles!
Like all my fruit and veg, these turnips are 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. But of course you can make it larger or smaller with your choice of yarn and an appropriate 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.
All my patterns come with my full support - just e-mail me if you have any questions.
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!

Little Conkers exists to help you get the most from your time and pennies - whether you're making something for yourself or as a gift - as a way of spreading the joy of creativity.
I know that, for many people, creativity is often fitted into the slivers of time that you can find between all the other "must dos" in your life. But you know that making something yourself means it can be exactly what you need, look exactly how you want and can give you untold pleasure day after day.
My sewing and crochet patterns are specifically designed with the time-strapped and frugal in mind, requiring no superfluous equipment and including practical suggestions on how to up-cycle materials wherever possible.
