For those of you who like fruit crochet patterns, obviously this orange crochet pattern is definitely not to be missed, I’m in the process of finishing, I think it’s good to share with you, good luck.
Orange (plush yarn Himalaya Dolphin Baby, Yarnart Dolce and analogues, hook 4mm):
1: 2 ch, 6 sc into the 2nd ch from hook (6)
3: (1 sc, 1 inc)*6 times (18)
4: (2 sc, 1 inc)*6 times (24)
5: (3 sc, 1 inc)*6 times (30)
6-9: 30 sc (4 rounds)

11: (2 sc, 1 dec)*6 times (18) Stuff fruit during crocheting.
12: (1 sc, 1 dec)*6 times (12)
13: 6 dec (6)+1 sl st
Fasten off, stuff the fruit completely.
Using the yarn needle, weave yarn tail through the last 6 sts and pull the hole closed tightly. Secure the yarn and weave the tail into the stuffed body.
Leaf (yarn Yarnart Jeans, hook 2mm):
15 ch, don’t join, crochet around the chains, beginning from the 3nd ch from hook:
1 sl st, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc in 1 st, 2 tr, 2 tr in 1 st, 2 tr, 2 dc in 1 st, 1 hdc, 1 sc;
in the turning stitch- 1 sl st, 1sc, 1 sl st – this is the top of the leaf;
turn and continue to crochet on the other side of the chain: 1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc in 1 st, 2 tr, 2 tr in 1 st, 2 tr, 2 dc in 1 st, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 2 sl st + 3 ch
Cut the thread, leaving a tail of 20 cm in length, do not tighten the last loop, we will connect it with an orange leg.
Orange leg (yarn Yarnart Jeans, hook 2mm):
Leave at the beginning the tail of the thread 15 cm: 8 ch, beginning from the 2nd ch from hook:
4 sl st, put the last loop of a leaf on this chain, tighten it, and continue to crochet along the chain 3 sl st. (The front side of the leaf should be deployed in the direction of the beginning of the round)
Cut the thread, leaving a tail of 15 cm in length.
Hide the tail of the yarn from the leaf inside the leg with a yarn needle (output to the end of the round), but do not cut.
Receptacle (yarn Yarnart Jeans, hook 2mm):
4 sc into the magic ring, insert the leg of the orange into the ring, then close the ring with sl st, pull the ring (pull the tail), while fixing the end of the leg inside.
Fasten off, leaving a tail of 15 cm in length. Bring the tail to the middle of the wrong side.
Divide all the tails of the thread into 2 bunches, and stretch them through the body of the orange with a needle – insert the needle into the center of the top and exit at the center of the lower part, but into the adjacent holes.
Tie the ends of the threads together in knots in different combinations (squeeze the orange body to form a little)
Cut the ends of the thread, leaving about 1 mm, so you can slightly fluff them.
So orange crochet pattern is done, now let’s put it in the places you like the most, I will try to collect more fruit samples, to create a fruit collection. Good luck with this crochet pattern.
