Apple Tree Yarn Bomb

I had this idea a couple of years ago and never followed through. I've got some encouragement now so I'm thinking a revival is in order!

My plan is this:
1. Recruit others (and myself) to make knitted/crotchet apple cozies.
2. Collect
3. Wait for apples to grow
4. Find a lovely tree whose apples seem to need a hug
5. Cover as many apples as I can with cozies
6. Take pictures and share
7. ?????
8. Profit

Okay, 7 and 8 aren't really part of it but I felt I couldn't leave them out.
If you're interested, email me at

Free cozy patterns:
I've used the above before, and it works really well. The large is really large if you use red heart, but that isn't always a bad thing. We get some monster apples here in NH
I haven't used this one because I can only crochet squares and rectangles. Anything more complicated comes out a disaster. But I hear it's a good pattern. If you have any other free pattern suggestions, just leave them in the comments.

I can't offer and monetary compensation but everyone who participates will get credit in the final photos.


  1. dammit, I just noticed the ravelry one costs money. Anyone have a free crochet pattern?

  2. For Crochet:

    For Knit:

  3. I've never had the urge to participate in yarn bombing before, but I might have to send you a few cozies.
