Seems like I am being inspired this week by all the cute things! A few days ago I post THIS adorable Flamingo Applique that was inspired by my flamingo crochet hook. And today I whipped up a Crochet Avocado that was inspired by the tablecloth my friend Jen had out this morning!
The best part is that this avocado is pretty much true to size! It’s about 6×4 inches and fits in your hand just as a real ripe avocado would. I think I am going to use this one as an extra large keychain but you can do with it as you wish! I think it would make a fun pregnancy announcement because the baby is the size of an avocado when a woman is 16 weeks pregnant. It’s also just a fun amigurumi to have around if you are an avocado fan!

Round 2: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 2
Round 3: HDC in first three stitches, SC in all remaining stitches making a SC + HDC in last, join to first HDC, fasten off leaving long tail.
On lighter green avocado body piece:
Attach safety eyes and stitch on a little smile with your black yarn.
Then stitch on your seed to the middle tummy area. Stuff lightly with poly-fil before completely sewing shut.
Place both body pieces together. SC the edges together with the green yarn. Stuff with poly-fil before completely stitching it shut. You don’t want to stuff it too full. Just enough to give it a nice form but not so much that the poly-fil is coming out between the stitches.
I’m crazy about this crochet avocado!
The cutest and squishiest superfood you’ll ever see!
