The Pattern

Rnd1: With light green yarn sc x 6 in a magic ring, or ch x 2 and do 6 sc in the second chain from your hook (6)
Rnd2: Inc x 6 (12)
Rnd3: [Sc, inc] x 6 (18)

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
Rnd 1-9: Work the same as the Front of the Avocado.
Rnd10-14: Sc around the entire piece, fasten off at the end of Rnd14 (no stitch count).

Avocado Pit
Rnd1: With tan yarn sc x 6 in a magic ring, or ch x 2 and do 6 sc in the second chain from your hook (6)
Rnd2: Inc x 6 (12)
Rnd3: [Sc x 4, dec] x 3, leave a long tail and fasten off (15)

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!

  1. All of these rivers hold a large number of big trout, but are just a few of the bigger named rivers that Montana has to offer. It takes many trips to Montana to really determine a favorite river. A person could fish Montana for a lifetime and still have new rivers to fish.
