Apple Cozy

I have been contemplating getting a subscription to Mollie Makes magazine off and on now for almost a year.  I had forgotten all about it until another swapper from Swap-Bot mentioned it.  When I looked into the price, however, it really made me think.  It is super expensive!!  I did purchase the latest issue off of the magazine racks this month.....so for now I will still keep thinking about it.  Although, I much prefer to hold on to a magazine.....the price reduction of the digital issue is marginally easier to swallow.  We shall see.  Before I picked up the issue that I did purchase......I tried out this cute pattern for a cozy apple jacket from a previous issue.  I am finding that I nearly always need to use a larger hook as my tension must be very.....tense:)  After two do overs with larger hooks.....finally I found one that worked up to the right size!  While it may not be entirely very functional....it certainly is fashionable:)  It almost makes me want to bring an apple to work......

Love the apple cozy! You've just reminded me that these have been on my mental "to crochet" list for some time. Yours is so cute, I must make one now. ;o)

That is adorable if not very practical.
I came here from your Swap-bot site (I'm there as skron11).
