Crochet Vegetable Pattern

This aubergine is intended to be as lifelike as possible, with a gentle curve to its body and naturalistic uneven leaves.

For an approximately 13cm or 5” vegetable you will need:

  • 33m (36yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in purple
  • 6m (6yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in green a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
  • a stuffing material (details are provided in the pattern)
  • a blunt yarn needle
  • sharp scissors

Of course you can easily work a larger or smaller eggplant/aubergine by using heavier or lighter yarn and varying your hook accordingly!

The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn and stuffing choices.

This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.

Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed ‘tutorial-style’ set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don’t need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I’m doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.

I don’t like sewing up, so this pattern is worked all in one, without any sewing up to do, and you will only have three yarn tails to work in at the end!

This pattern comes with my full support! Rest assured I am a real person and I’d love to hear from you and see pictures of your finished vegetable! :-)
