I picked up a fun book called “Lunch Bags” recently that contains 25 patterns to help you dress up your lunch in style.
Most of the patterns are for sewing, but I couldn’t resist testing out the retro crocheted apple cozy pattern by Shannon Fowler-Wardrep.
I love all things vintage (doesn’t this look so 70s?), and since I’m an apple fan… I like that the cozy will help keep those beauties from getting bumped and bruised in my work bag.
My crochet skills are rudimentary… but I found the pattern fairly forgiving along the way (just don’t look too closely at my stitches!) It’s easy enough for a beginner to complete in one evening.
I used 100% cotton yarn in Hot Green and Natural (Sugar ‘n Cream), but I think the pattern would look great with a number of different color combinations.
…and ready to go.
