Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in American English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from inches to cm - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in American and British English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in British English, please click here.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work ch 1, then work sc around the loop. When the desired no of sc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last sc on the round, continue to next round with 1 sc in next sc (= first sc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last sc and first sc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 sc by working 2 sc in next sc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 sc by working 2 sc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next sc, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

APPLE:
Worked in the round in a circle. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - at the bottom of apple with red on hook size 4.5 mm/ US 7.
ROUND 1: Work 7 sc in the magic circle - READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE.
ROUND 2: Inc 1 sc in every sc = 14 sc.
ROUND 3: * 1 sc in next sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 21 sc.
ROUND 4: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 28 sc.
ROUND 5: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 35 sc.
ROUND 6: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 7: * 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, inc 1 sc in next sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 42 sc.
ROUND 8-16: Work 1 sc in every sc.
ROUND 17: * 1 sc in each of the next 5 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 36 sc.
ROUND 18: * 1 sc in each of the next 4 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 30 sc.
ROUND 19: * 1 sc in each of the next 3 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 sc.
ROUND 20: * 1 sc in each of the next 2 sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 sc.
ROUND 21: * 1 sc in next sc, dec 1 sc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 sc.
ROUND 22: Work all sc tog 2 by 2 = 6 sc, cut the thread. Fill the apple with some poly stuffing, sew the last 6 sc tog with thread end. NOTE: Pull the thread end through the top and bottom of apple to make a dent in each side.

STEM:
Worked in the round in a circle. Ch 3 with brown on hook size 4.5 mm/ US 7, then 2 sc in 1st and 2nd ch = 4 sc. Continue in the round and work a total of 16 sc with 1 sc in every sc, cut and fasten the thread.

LEAF:
Worked back and forth. Crochet a row with 8 ch and pistachio on hook size 4.5 mm/ US 7, then crochet along the ch-row as follows: 1 sl st in 2nd ch from hook, 1 sc in each of the next 2 ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 dc in each of the next 2 ch, 2 sc in the last ch. Then work on the other side of ch-row as follows: 1 dc in each of the next 2 ch, 1 hdc in next ch, 1 sc in each of the next 2 ch, 1 sl st in the last ch, cut and fasten the thread.

Good evening! In the description of the stem of the apple it's written: "Continue in the round and work a total of 16 dc with 1 dc in every dc". So, having 4 dc I can't understand, what should I do to have 16 dc? Could you be so kind to explane me. Thank you.

Dear Mrs Marzo, you work now in the round without joining at the end of each round a total of 16 dc over the 4 dc for the stem, ie work a total of 4 rounds (x 4 dc = 16 dc). Happy crocheting!

Čo znamená to KS ?

DROPS Design 06.11.2014 kl. 08:06:

Dobrý den, KS je zkratka pro krátký sloupek - jak na něj uvidíte zde: DS je pak dlouhý sloupek, PDS polodlouhý sloupek (nebo také polosloupek), řo řetízkové oko... Hodně zdaru! Hana

Ich verstehe den Stiel nicht. Müssen die 3 Luftmaschen mit Kettmasche erst zum Ring geschlossen werden, oder wie kann man hier spiralförmig häkeln?

DROPS Design 07.11.2013 kl. 09:17:

Liebe Claudia, das ist hier nicht nötig. Sie können die 4 M häkeln und dann gleich wieder mit der 1. weiterfahren, so schliesst sich der Kreis. Dann vorzu immer weiterhäkeln (spiralfömig rund).

Hvor mange æbler bliver der af 1 ngl rødt?

DROPS Design 18.09.2013 kl. 13:28:

Du får sikkert et par æbler af 1 nøgle, skriv gerne selv svaret ind når du kommer så langt! God fornøjelse!

Hallo ich glaube einen Fehler entdeckt zu haben. Und zwar in Reihe 17 heißt es: " * 1 fM in die nächsten 5 fM, 2 fM in die nächste fM *, von *-* wdh = 36 fM." Müsste es nicht heißen: * 1 fM in die nächsten 5 fM, 2 fM zusammen*, von *-* wiederholen"? Denn die Maschenanzahl würde ja sonst zunehmen und nicht abnehmen!

DROPS Design 18.12.2012 kl. 19:33:

Liebe Nadine, vielen Dank für den richtigen Hinweis. Wir haben sofort eine Korrektur vorgenommen.
