an apple for the teacher

I've been doing a lot of knitting lately ('tis the season, despite the heat wave.) But I had to share this quick and adorable back-to-school-related project. I made two of these knitted apple cozies for Lo to take to her teachers on the first day of school, and they were super fun to make.

In case you haven't heard of an apple cozy, it's basically a cover for your apple so it doesn't get bruised in your lunch box. I have seen a lot of crochet apple cozies, but I really like how it looks knitted in stockinette stitch. I followed this free pattern by Linda Dawkins of Natural Suburbia and knitted with cotton yarn so the cozies will be washable. My only modifications were adding crocheted leaves and crocheting a chain for the button loop instead of making an i-cord. (What's on your needles these days?)
