Magnetic lemon


I finished this eons ago, but I'm a terrible blogger. LIFE. IT HAPPENS. 

Just a warning, I did not write this pattern down as I was making it, but it's nearly identical to the lime, just a bit bigger, so I adjusted accordingly. If it comes out wonky, let me know!



MATERIALS

G hook
Worsted weight yarn in school bus yellow, lemon green, and cream.
Embroidery needle
Fiber fill
If desired, magnets that are strong enough to hold through yarn.

One half of rind:

R1: With school bus yellow yarn, 4 Sc in magic loop.

R2: Inc every other st (6 sts)

R3: SC around (6 sts)

R4: Inc every st (12 sts)

R5: *SC 1, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (18 sts)

R6: *SC 2, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (24 sts)

R7: *SC 3, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (30 sts)

R8: *SC 4, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (36 sts)

R9: *SC 5, 2 SC in next st* rep 5 times (42 sts)

R10-R13: SC around (42 sts) Bind off

Second half of rind:

R1: With school bus yellow yarn, 4 Sc in magic loop.

R2: Inc every other st (6 sts)

R3: Inc every st (12 sts)

R4: *SC 1, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (18 sts)

R5:* SC 2, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (24 sts)

R6: *SC 3, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (30 sts)

R7: *SC 4, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times (36 sts)


R8: *SC 5, 2 SC in next st* rep 5 times (42 sts)


R9-R13: SC around (30 sts)

Bind off


Flesh of fruit (make 2):

R1: With cream  yarn, 4SC in magic loop, sl st to close.

Switch to lemon yellow yarn.

R2: CH 1, 2 SC in each st around, sl st to close (8 sts)

R3: CH 1,  *SC 1, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times, sl st to close (12 sts)

R4: CH 1,  *SC 2, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times, sl st to close (16 sts)

*R5: CH 1,  *SC 3, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times, sl st to close (20 sts)

R6: CH 1,  *SC 4, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times, sl st to close (24 sts)

*This is where it gets a little fuzzy for me. You might have to eyeball what's going to fit. If you make the flesh and it's too small, then just keep increasing until it's the right size. If it's too big, rip out a round! It's easy to fix no matter what.

Switch back to cream yarn

R7: CH 1,  *SC 5, 2 SC in next st* rep 4 times, sl st to close (28 sts)

Bind off, embroider sections of fruit with cream yarn. Attach magnets to underside if
desired by sewing in tightly. Attach to rind and sew 3/4 of the way around, stuff, then finish sewing shut. Weave in ends.
















Can I just say that blogger's formatting totally blows? My entries look fine in edit mode, but they go wonky when I publish.
