Amigurumi banana pattern

The last but not least in my series of crochet veggies is THE BANANA.

I had been thinking about the banana for some days because I didn’t really know how to make this crescent-moon-like shape… But I’m pretty satisfied with the result. It’s a toy anyway… it has to be identifiable, but I didn’t really need too much detail level. It’s not one of those absolutely perfect plastic food replicas they have in Japan…

To make it look more banana-ish, take a yarn needle and pass this long end through all the stitches longitudinally (from top to bottom) not through the stuffing but through the actual stitches. Pull tight and make a knot at the end. This will maintain the banana bent. I don’t have pictures of the process.

Or you could instead hide a wire inside so it’ll maintain the shape…

  2. The technique with the yarn in the end to bend the banana is is such a great tip! I was looking for a way to bend something and this is really perfect 🙂 Thank you a lot.
    By the way, I really like the food your doing 🙂

    • Hi! It’s very quick, just about and hour or two tops! The most important step is the las one when you pass the yarn along all the piece, that’s what gives it the banana shape!
      Good luck with your crocheting! And cool blog! I hope your vegetables grow healthy and tall!

      • Your banana really did crochet super quick. We love it! Thank you, for the pattern!!

        And thank you for checking out my blog! Our seedlings are growing nicely 🙂

  3. This is great, approximately how big is the finished product? I’m trying to figure out if it will work for the project I have in mind. Thanks!

    • Hi Andrea!thanks for your comment. I guess it will depend of the yarn and hook you use, but mine was like an open hand, from pinkie to thumb 🙂
