Christmas Presents: Apple Cozy

My brother, Jason, and his wife, Kaylin, came to visit my family this Thanksgiving. While they were here, we began our Christmas scheming of figuring out who wanted what for Christmas. Jason told me that Kaylin was wanting an apple cozy. I had never heard of these before, but after going to Etsy and doing a search for apple cozies, I was not only loving how cute they were, I was trying to figure out how I could make one!! An apple cozy is a crocheted or knitted cover for an apple that protects the apple, so you can toss it into your purse, lunchbox, or bag and not worry about bruising the apple. I found a couple apple cozy patterns online and tried them but they just weren't quite what I had pictured in my head so I decided to create my own pattern. After a several attempts, I got what I was looking for!

I loved how it turned out, but it was a bit plain... it needed some kind of decoration. So next I came up with these!

And once I attached them, it was the last piece my apple cozy needed.

I can't get over how cute it turned out!! I was a bit worried that it wouldn't be the right size to fit your basic apple because I had a rather small apple I was using as my model, but Kaylin said it fit perfectly. 

I am working on getting this pattern, as well as a couple other patterns I came up with recently, written out correctly. My apple cozy was really easy to make and fun too, so stay tuned for the pattern for this and more!!
