From the Pattern Description: Knit an apple a day to keep the therapist away! Or knit a whole bushel. The trick to getting the right size is to knit approximately a third size larger than you want the finished apple to be. It shrinks to size when felted. Two skeins of Paterna make five apples. Make a basket of these and felt them together.
