Less than a skein of light green, dark green, tan yarn
Black thread for the eyelashes, eyebrows and mouth

Row7: Turn, ch, dec, sc x 3, dec (5)
Row8: Turn, ch, dec, sc, dec (3)
Rnd9: Turn, ch, now sc around the entire piece, fasten off (no stitch count).

Back of Avocado

Rnd10-14: Sc around the entire piece, fasten off at the end of Rnd14 (no stitch count).

Avocado Pit

Assembly
Place the pit on top of the top layer of your avocado and sew it in place, before sewing it completely shut add in some stuffing. Make sure your eyes are firmly in place. I used dress making pins and pinned the top and the bottom half of the avocado together, then using the long tail of the back of your avocado I sewed them together, sewing through both pieces in the last round. Before you sew your avocado shut completely stuff it firmly as you are working. Trim all ends and weave them in. Sew on a mouth and eyebrows. Enjoy your new little sweet avocado!
