Pear-fecto! – Free Pattern!

December 28, 2009

Hi Spud & Chloë Friends,

I hope you are enjoying this holiday season. Many of you may know that I love pears as I have written about this slight obsession many times. I thought I would share a quick and simple knitted pear pattern with you today. What a great use for your Spud & Chloë left-overs. The large pear is made in Sweater and the tiny pear is made in Fine.

These pears could be used as toys, pin cushions or home decor. Can you imagine a big bowl filled with knitted pears on your coffee table? Gorgeous! With a thread or ribbon loop added, the tiny pear would make a fantastic ornament. Maybe you want to add a small super ball inside to add some bounce! Why not? Go for it.

Here is some information you might like to know about the pattern for Pear-fecto!

Finished measurements (without the stem):
