How ’bout them caramel apples?

It will not rot your teeth.

Materials:

  • Worsted weight yarn in caramel color (CC), apple color (AC), and stick color (SC). I used Wool-Ease.
  • US4 dpns (set of 5)
  • Polyfil or other stuffing
  • Yarn needle

With CC, CO 4 st and knit I-cord for 3 inches.

Without turning work, kfb into each st (8 st total). Arrange over 4 needles (2 st per needle) and join to knit in the round.

Round 1: K1, kfb (3 st per needle, 12 st total).

Rounds 2-6: On each needle, k to last st, kfb. End with 8 st per needle, 32 st total.

Rounds 7-10: Knit plain.

Rounds 11-18: On each needle, k to last 2 st, k2tog.

With 6 st per needle (24 st total), break CC and change to AC.

End with 2 st per needle, 8 st total. Tie off or weave in ends from color change.

Stuff the apple firmly. Break AC and change to SC.

Round 19: K2tog (4 st total), knitting st onto one needle. Tie off or weave in ends from color change.

Knit I-cord for 2 inches. Break yarn, thread tail through live stitches, pull tight and weave in end.

Use yarn tail to tack the first bit of I-cord into a circle, to make a base for the caramel apple.

    It will not rot your teeth, or surprise them with one of those mushy/rotten bits that the biggest most tempting apples seem to hide. That’s one of the reasons I distrust caramel apples – but these look both adorable and non-threatening!
