This tiny crochet pear is a fun project for Amigurumi beginners as well as seasoned crocheters. You could give them a little face, turn them into jewelry, or crochet a whole basket full of them.
All you need to know is how to single crochet (double crochet in British terms), how to slip stitch, make a magic ring, and invisible decreases with single crochet (British double crochet).
If you haven’t done any or all of these techniques before, you can learn them here:
Materials and tools for a tiny pear
Small amount of toy stuffing
This pattern is written in U.S. terminology. I didn’t convert this one because it is so simple and quick. If you are used to British/Australian crochet terminology please replace sc (single crochet) with dc (double crochet), and 2sc (single crochet 2 in same st) with 2dc (double crochet 2 in same st). Let me know anytime if you have any questions.
C1 = Color of pear
C2 = Color of stalk
Rd = round
St(s) = stitch(es)
Ch = chain
Sl st = slip stitch
Sc = single crochet
Inc = single crochet 2 in same st
Inv dec = invisible decrease with sc: Insert hook in front loops of next 2 sts, yarn over, pull through both front loops, yarn over, pull through 2 remaining loops
25 sts x 26 rows of single crochet = 4″x 4″
Instructions for a tiny pear
Crochet the pear (C1)
Rd 1: Sc 6 in magic ring
Rd 2: Inc 6 (12)
Rd 3: [sc 1, inc 1]*6 (18)
Rd 4: [sc 2, inc 1]*6 (24)
Rd 5 to 7: Sc 24 (24)
Rd 8: [sc 2, inv dec 1]*6 (18)
Rd 9: [sc 1, inv dec 1]*6 (12)
If you want to attach eyes, you can do so now.
Rd 10 to 12: Sc 12 (12)
Fill apple with stuffing.
Rd 13: Inv dec 6 (6)
Thread the end onto your tapestry needle. Fasten off the last rd by stitching the end through the 6 front loops and pulling it tight. Then stitch through the pear from the upper middle and sew in the end.
Crochet the stalk (C2)
Make a slip knot and ch 3
Sl st 2 (starting from 2nd ch from hook)
Break yarn, pull through.
Attach the stalk
Cut both ends of the stalk to the same length. Thread them onto your tapestry needle. Stitch through the pear from the top middle to the bottom middle.
Trim the ends at the bottom of the pear short, so they look like the stamen.
