As I have written before, I am making lots and lots of pcrocheted playfood for the Little One. In Denmark there is a tradition of making an Advent Calendar as a countdown for Christmas, holding 24 small gifts. In our home we have a Santa’s boot that is eagerly checked every morning. Her little red suitcase is getting filled with crocheted snacks and by christmas eve it will hopefully be bursting with edibles, ready to be fried, boiled and served! If you want to make these apple wedges too, I wrote down the pattern below. YOU WILL NEED
Some leftover cotton yarn in colors nature, red and brown.
A crochet hook size 2,5-3mm (I use 3mm because my crochet is very tight)
An embroidery needle to fasten ends
