Free Crochet Pattern: Apple Cozy

I have to admit that before Etsy I had never seen nor heard of an apple cozy! But I think they are so cute and very easy to make. Here is a simple pattern that works up in minutes:

- Small amount of worsted weight cotton yarn in colors of your choice for cozy and leaf.
- Crochet hook sizes E and H
- Button that is at least 1/2" in diameter
- Thread and needle to sew button on.

With color yarn of your choice and a size H hook,
Rnd 1: 6 sc into a double loop start and pull the loop closed (6).
Rnd 2: 2 sc in each sc around (12).
Rnd 3: [sc in next sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times (18).
Rnd 4: [sc in next 2 sc, 2 sc in next sc] 6 times (24).
Rnd 5: sc in each sc around (24), ch 1, turn.
Now you are going to work in rows
Row 6: sc in next 22 sc, ch 1, turn (22).
Row 7: sc2tog, sc in next 18 sc, sc2tog, ch 1, turn (20).
Row 8: sc in next 4 sc, 2sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 8 sc, 2sc in next 2 sc, sc in next 4 sc, ch 1, turn (24).
Rows 9-14: sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn (24).
Continue to sc evenly around the opening on the side of the apple cozy until you reach the top of Row 14 on the other side of the opening.
Ch 20 (this will create the loop that goes around the button to close the cozy).
Row 15: Continue to sc in next stitch on Row 14, sc in next 3 sc, sc2tog twice, sc in next 8 sc, sc2tog twice, sc in next 4 sc, sl st in next sc.
Finish off and weave in ends.

Leaf: with green yarn and size E hook
Ch 9; sc in 2nd ch from hook, dc in next 3 ch, sc in next 2 ch, sl st in 2 next ch, working the free loops on the other side of the chain, sl st in next loop, sc in next 2 loops, dc in next 3 loops, sc in next loop. Finish off leaving a long end. Sew leaf to apple cozy. Weave in ends.

Sew on button.

Love this! Thank you for the pattern! I added a little pocket to the back for little "lovie" notes. Chain 9, turn, sc in 2nd St from hook, sc in each until end 8sc. Ch1, turn sc in ech. Repeat until you get the size pocket you desire. I did 8 rows. Then I centered it in the back and stitched it leaving the top open to form the pocket. :)
