DIY: Crochet banana


EN

This week is officially my back-to-work week from my 6 wonderful weeks off Summer break. And like always it takes some time to adjust, to get my inner work engine warmed up again and like always take a deep breath. It’s kind of the same feeling going back to school but instead of school it’s work. Yay.

Since it’s my first work week and it’s first of September why not kick it off with a DIY post. You know to keep our mind working! And this time I take you guys through another fruity crochet tutorial where this time it’s all about the bananas!

Happy bunch of bananas because a banana provides good energy to our body, anti-stress and of course is a good snack for every monkeyheads like us!

Like always I tend to keep it simple and this banana crochet is very novice, I promise. And if not you can always leave a comment or a mail for questioning. Please try it out!

Deze week is mijn eerste werk week weer begonnen na een heerlijke 6 weken lekker zomeren. En zoals altijd is het weer aanpassen om mijn innerlijk werk motor weer klaarstart te maken en zoals altijd haal ik diep adem. Het is een beetje hetzelfde gevoel als terug naar school gaan, maar in plaats van school is het werk.

En omdat het mijn eerste werkweek is en toevallig vandaag eerste dag van september is, trap ik vandaag af met een DIY post. Want we moeten weer aan het werk! En deze keer neem ik jullie mee naar een fruitige haak sessie waar dit keer allemaal om de banaan draait. 
Blije trossen bananen want bananen geven ons lichaam een boost aan energie, een anti-stress voedsel en natuurlijk een lekkere tussendoor voor alle apenhoofden als wij!

Zoals altijd probeer ik bij elke DIY zo simpel mogelijk te houden net als deze dat beloof ik. En zo niet dan kun je altijd je vraag achterlaten dus probeer het uit!

Or convert it into a cute brooch! 


Instructions

  1. With the yellow thread, chain 14
  2. R2: single crochet, single crochet, half double crochet, 2x half double crochet, double crochet, 2x double crouchet, double crouchet, half double crochet, half double crochet, single crochet, single crochet, slip stitch. Done! (make 3x)
  3. Leave a tail. That was easy right!
  4. Weave all tailends through each other to the back banana. Weave a brown thread through all 3 the banana's and make a knot and chain 4. 
  5. R2: 8x single crochet. Make sure that you crochet in the 2nd and the 3rd banana as well for better alignment and security. You do that by just using the most side stitch of each banana's.
  6. R3: single crochet all the way, leave a tail at the end. 
  7. To secure everything just make a double knot with the end tails and cut them off with a pair of scissor.
  8. The tip: with a brown thread and needle, embroider just through 1 hole about 3-4 times and make a double knot at the back.

  7. It seems so easy but it's tough job for me tough. I tried to follow the instructions to do an angry bird last time but ended up keeping all the things inside the shelve.
