Pears, pears, everywhere...

My friend - the birthday girl I spoke of - likes pears and cows.







Not sure where I got this idea from. It just flowed out of the pencils... I don't think this will become an amigurumi anytime soon.


SURPRISE! FREE PATTERN
(hope it makes sense... I suck at pattern writing, remember? Good luck!)

3.5mm/E hook
Red Heart Soft Yarn – worsted med Leaf (pear body)
Red Heart Soft Yarn – worsted med Chocolate (stem)
Bernat Satin Soft – taupe (leaf)
Black embroidery thread
Bright pink dk yarn scraps
Polyfill
Buttons

Finished pear approx 4” tall including stem and 6.5” around widest part of body

Body (starting from top of pear)
Start with “magic ring” - 6
2 sc in each – 12
1 sc in first, 2sc in next sc* repeat – 18
1 sc in each – 18 * repeat this round two more times
1 sc in first, 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc* repeat – 24
1 sc in first, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, 2sc in next sc* repeat – 30
1 sc in each sc – 30 * repeat this round six more times
1 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, 1 sc in next sc, sc2tog * repeat – 24

( at this point or soon after you may want to stop and make the stem and attach it. same with putting on the eyes and stitched details. Then stuff it and proceed to decrease. Up to you but I thought it was easier that way.)

1 sc in first sc, 1 sc in next sc, sc2tog * repeat -18
1 sc in first sc, sc2tog * repeat – 12
Sc2tog – 6
Tie off, weave in.

Stem

Amigurumi Girl, I love your pattern. I am going to have an Amigurumi program for teens at the Appleton Public Library (www.apl.org) and was wondering if I could use your pattern with the teens. I would give you credit for the pattern. Please email me at teen@apl.org! thanks!

Faloola said...

Hi, I'm stuck on sc2tog in next sc* in order to increase from 24 to 30 stitches... how can 2tog be an increase?

Please help, my pear needs you!

Amigurumi Girl said...

Yes, faloola, that should have read "2sc in next sc" for an increase. sorry! i warned you i'm horrible at pattern writing. :) Thanks for calling that to my attention, I changed it in the pattern. (^_^)v

Faloola said...

Wow, thanks so much for your quick reply, I'm so glad I can continue on now, this is my 1st project so thought it was my lack of knowledge.

Would that also meant that

Magic ring 6
1sc in each - 12

should be 2sc in each

Amigurumi Girl said...

hahaha Faloola! You should be my editor! Man I really DO suck in pattern writing! I apologize to all the other people out there who might have tried this pattern and cursed me all the way through! Yes, that first round after the mnagic ring should read

2sc in each - 12

so so sorry everyone... have a great day!

Hanane said...

Thanks!

thank you soo much!!!

Ed said...

The pear made was cute! Thanks for the pattern :D Made one myself too!

Nicola said...

Hello there! Thanks so much for posting this pattern up! I found it on a Google search, and am now in the middle of making it :) I just wanted to check something, you know in the pattern where you say:

"1 sc in each sc – 30 * repeat this round six more times"

Do you mean do this once: 1 sc in each sc – 30, then repeat this again 6 more times, i.e. doing that particular round 7 times in total, or does it mean to just do this particular round 6 times in total?

Thanks in advance :)

Amigurumi Girl said...

Hi Nicola- I believe I meant that would be 7 rows total of 30 count each. ;) Good luck!

Lenneth said...

I need some help :(
I don't know what I'm doing wrong, but it always ends up like a strawberry :(... a green strawberry... Please, help me!

Amigurumi Girl said...

Hello Lenneth... I'm not sure how to contact you. You can reach me at AmigurumiGirl@gmail.com with specific questions and I'll try to help you out. ;) At least you know if you change your yarn color you can have a strawberry ami. :D

quinipota said...

Caren Franco said...

i was wondering if i could use this pattern for a crochet class on how to make amigurumi? if class enrollment of other classes is an indicator, there would probably be only a very small number of students who would sign up.

thank you!

Amigurumi Girl said...

This post is for CAREN FRANCO... I'm sorry I'm having the hardest time tying to figure out how to reply to you! I hope you see this post ... yes, please feel free to use this pattern for a class. :)

Caren Franco said...

thank you! =)
