This aubergine is intended to be as lifelike as possible, with a gentle curve to its body and naturalistic uneven leaves.
For an approximately 13cm or 5" vegetable you will need:
6m (6yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in green. a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook a stuffing material (details are provided in the pattern) a blunt yarn needle sharp scissors
Like all my fruit and veg, the aubergine/eggplant 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.
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!
