This pattern is available for $5.00.

Five knitting patterns for the French collection of produce. The fruit and veg patterns in this set include: LEEK, POTATO, RADISH, RED PEAR, and SHALLOT. The patterns are easy to follow and quick to complete.

All pattern PDF’s are available in full color. Patterns are suited to the advanced beginner or the intermediate knitter, but would be a good introduction to circular knitting for the beginner due to the small size of each toy. You’ll be knitting in the round, and will use knit stitch, purl stitch, i-cord, casting on, casting off, increasing, and decreasing.

The produce varies in size, but they approximate life size fruit and vegetables.
Leek = 9” long
Potato = 6” long
Radish = 6” long overall
Red Pear = 3” diameter
Shallot = 4” long

Materials needed:
Set of 4 double-pointed needles (slightly smaller size than recommended on ball band)
KnitPicks Wool of the Andes Yarn Worsted (or similar for colors needed)
Poly fill or other stuffing material
Crochet hook
Stitch holders
Darning needle

Great as a gift set for kids - you can create a new toy each holiday to make a full set for a play produce stand.

This original Egg+Tartan pattern set will sent to you via email in PDF format so you can start knitting right away! You can print the pattern, or knit straight from your computer laptop screen.

The Market Stand pattern will be available on Etsy by October 31, 2011.
