Crochet Pattern: Cozy Apple Sweater

By Rachel Choi – 13 Comments
Do you normally pack an apple for lunch? If so, crochet this cute yet silly Cozy Apple Sweater to keep your apple clean while bouncing around in your lunch bag. The fun apple sweater is bound to put smiles on faces when you pull it out for lunch. Best of all it’s fast to crochet and requires only a little bit of yarn with no sewing. The sweater is designed for an apple but can also be used for other fruits of similar shape and size. For extra fruit protection, fold up the top of the sweater collar.

Finished Size: 2 3/4” (7 cm) in diameter, 4 1/2” (11.5 cm) tall when flat
Note: Cozy is expected to stretch to fit various sized apples or other fruits

Skill Level:
Medium Weight Yarn (approximately 50 yards of main color, small amount of contrasting color)
Crochet Hook I (5.50 mm)
crochet yarn size 4

    This is a really good idea – I like to grab an apple before going out but what stops me is how it gets bruised in my handbag. This cute sweater would help with that, I’m going to make one with some scrap wool! Thanks for the idea <3 <3

    Hi Rachel, I love this pattern and intend to use it for peaches. They are so soft that only a bump can bruise the flesh–this sweater is just the thing to keep them safe and fresh–hey, I just made a rhyme…lol. Thank you, Rachel, for another lovely and practical pattern for us all. Dawn

    Thanks for this great pattern! It’s funny but also a really great idea, especially for peaches! (I must say the apples that we have here are quite firm).
    Anyway, I wanted to aske you Rachel what kind of yarn I should use. I’ve got loads of coloured acrylic yarn, but would that be good to us or is cotton better?
    Thanks for reading this and have a great day!

    OK! Thanks for your advice! I found myself some leftover wool/silk yarn which will make a lovely fruit-cozy!
