Crochet Apple Slices

My little boys have been having so much fun playing with their kitchen to cook up all kinds of goodies. Carrot and cupcake soup anyone? We have a really cute handmade wooden kitchen, that we found at a yard sale. All the food that we've bought for it is either wood (Melissa and Doug), felt, or crocheted.

Last night I whipped up some apple slices to add to their fruit bowl. They were super, duper, easy and the kids like them. Here's the pattern I came up with.

Apple Slices
You'll need:
Worsted weight yarn in white, brown, and red or green (or whatever funky color you want your apples to be)
Size H hook
 Tapestry needle

 **the white part is worked in the round. Do not join at end of rows. You may find it helpful to use a stitch marker to keep track of your work.**

1) With white yarn, make a magic ring. I may be fantabulous, but I'm not even going to attempt to explain a magic ring. If you need instructions, youtube has some awesome videos. 8 sc into ring and tighten the loop. (8)

2)  2sc in each st around. (16)

3) *2sc in first st. 1 sc in next st*. Repeat around. (24)

4) *2sc in first st. 1 sc in next 2 st* Repeat around. (32)

5) *2sc in first st. 1 sc in next 3 st.* Repeat around (40)

     Sl in next st and fasten off white. Making sure that the center is tight, weave in the both of the ends.
Using brown yarn, thread two strands through the needle and stitch 6 "seeds" onto the slice. It may be helpful to fold it in half and stitch 3 in each half.

6)(no longer working in the round) Attach green yarn and sc 10. 2sc in next st. sc 20. 2sc in next st. sc the rest of the way around. Sl st to first green st. ch 1. (42)

7) sc in each st around. sl st to join. (42)

8) fold the piece in half. Working through both sides, sl stitch along your green or red edge. You should have a half circle. Fasten off and weave in ends.
