These crocheted grapefruit halves are terribly a-peel-ing -- once you’ve made one half, you simply must make another! Whole or half, you can have your amigurumi grapefruit with you at breakfast every day. Unlike the real stuff, crocheted fruit stays just as fresh as the day you stitched it!

The amigurumi grapefruit is worked continuously in the round. In worsted weight yarn with an F hook, your grapefruit half will be roughly 4” wide and 2.5” tall (though gauge is not important for this pattern). To work this pattern, you’ll need the following skills…

  • Basic crochet stitches (ch, sc, sl st)
  • Crochet surface stitch
  • Changing yarn colors
  • Working increases
  • Counting stitches and rows
  • Basic hand sewing

You’ll also need the following materials…

  • Worsted weight yarn in yellow (approximately 30 yards), cream (8 yards), pink (or whatever color you’d like your grapefruit’s flesh to be -- ruby red maybe? -- 12 yards), and brown (less than one yard)
  • scrap amounts of black yarn (for adding mouth and eyes)
  • safety eyes or buttons (if you don’t want to embroider eyes)
  • poly fill or other stuffing
