    Eat Your Fruits & Veggies Crochet-Along
    Part 1:
    Crocheted Strawberries and Blueberries
    Twinkie Chan
    Whip up these adorable berries designed by crochet food fanatic Twinkie Chan. Using only small amounts of yarn, this is a quick-to-stitch project that begs to be made in multiples. 
    Part 2:
    Crocheted Potato
    Twinkie Chan
    You’ve never seen a cuter potato than one designed by Twinkie Chan. Using a basic cylindrical pattern, Twinkie first talks you through the crochet construction, then demonstrates how embroidery can be used to turn a tube into a tuber.
    Part 3:
    Crocheted Radish
    Twinkie Chan
    Spice up your stuffed salad with Twinkie Chan’s darling little radishes. This skill-building project incorporates multiple colors and stitch patterns in a manageable, methodical way.
    Part 4:
    Crocheted Apple
    Twinkie Chan
    Tart and sweet, Twinkie Chan’s crocheted apple uses minimal shaping for maximum effect. A tiny stem and leaf add fresh-picked details. You know what they say about an apple a day, so don’t hedge your bets – make one now!
    Part 5:
    Crocheted Eggplant
    Twinkie Chan
    A green stem and leaves makes the purple pop on this mid-sized veggie. Whether you call it “eggplant” or “aubergine,” this firm-fleshed nightshade is an unexpectedly adorable addition to your family of crocheted produce. 
    Part 6:
    Crocheted Watermelon
    Twinkie Chan
    Stitch yourself a slice of summer with this tricolor chunk of watermelon. Once the crochet portion is complete, seeds are sewn on using an embroidery needle – an unexpected-yet-essential detail.
    Part 7:
    Crocheted Broccoli
    Twinkie Chan
    Broccoli is the undeniable king of the cruciferous – a nutrition packed (or in this case, poly-filled) veggie. Worked with two shades of green using elementary crochet stitches, these bite-sized florets can be stitched up quickly.
    Part 8:
    Crocheted Tomato
    Twinkie Chan
    A bit of red yarn, a scrap of green, and some stuffing are all you need to make nature’s favorite fruit-disguised-as-a-vegetable. Sew long stitches after shaping to create a vintage effect, reminiscent of Grandma’s pincushion.
