I couldn’t let my kids go to school empty handed on the first day of school! I whipped up these Easy Crochet Apples with Bernat Blanket Yarn and they really took only about 10 minutes each! My kids have been blessed with so many wonderful educators throughout preschool and elementary school and we are excited for the year ahead with their new teachers as they go into 4th, 2nd, and Kindergarten! Yes, Zoe is already a Kindergartener, can you believe it?!

Take tail and tapestry needle and send it down through the middle top all the way thru the apple to the middle bottom. Pull tightly so that you create an indent in the top of the apple. Weave in loose end to the bottom of the apple.
