Fruit bowl

I want to put together a little set of knitted play food. I was inspired by all the fancy schmancy play kitchens I've seen lately and some adorable knitting patterns I found on ravelry. I've started with the fruit bowl:

Figure 1. Still life with fruit

I used this pattern from Peachcake Knits for the lemon and lime. (ravelry link) The (so simple it may not be worth writing up) orange pattern is my own, below. Yarn is Cascade 220 for all fruits.

With US5 DPNs, cast on 6 stitches and join in round.

Row 1: Kfb all sts

Rows 2, 4, 6, 8, 10: knit

Row 3: K1, Kfb. Repeat 6 times

Row 5: K2, Kfb. Repeat 6 times

Row 7: K3, Kfb. Repeat 6 times

Row 9: K4, Kfb. Repeat 6 times

Row 11: K5, Kfb. Repeat 6 times

Row 12-15: knit

Row 16: K5, K2tog. Repeat 6 times

Rows 17, 19, 21, 23: knit

Row 18: K4, K2tog. Repeat 6 times

Row 20: K3, K2tog. Repeat 6 times

Row 22: K2, K2tog. Repeat 6 times. At this point, you should start stuffing your orange with fiberfill.

Row 25: K2tog. Repeat 6 times. Finish stuffing your orange with fiberfill.

Cut yarn, thread tail through remaining 6 stitches. Embroider a green asterisk
