A Knitted Peach

Another finished WIP!  I started this in October, and finally finished it this weekend...

Cute little knitted peach

It is the cutest little knitted peach!

I have always thought that crochet works best for amigurumi... until I saw a knitted peach on the instagram feed of Jooles of Sew Sweet Violet.  I had to get the pattern and make it!

The pattern is called Peached by Hunter Hammersen.

It was a fiddly little blighter to make, I have to admit - especially as I'm not very proficient at that kind of knitting - but totally worth it in the end!

I used an odd combination of yarn weights for this...

The peach yarn was from a Norah George mini (fingering weight) that was in an advent calendar I bought from Jooles (Sew Sweet Violet) in 2018.

For the stalk I had to use some aran weight yarn, as it was the only brown I had.  So, I altered the pattern to make the stalk by knitting a 3 stitch i-cord or the stalk would have been way too thick.

I used DK weight King Cole Bamboo Cotton for the leaf, and tried to knit extra tightly!

I used 3mm needles for the lot as I am a tight knitter.  I made the bigger size peach from the pattern, and the smaller size leaf.

I love it!  A very cute little make!

  1. OMGGGG this is adorable! That peach colour is so perfect. Ever since I was pregnant with Cora I've had a soft spot for that exact colour. And it reminds me of Cora's butt, which is equally adorable.
