Lemon/Lime – Pattern

Since I am staying in school for the summer, I had to move into a new dorm on campus. Thankfully this one is reserved for the upperclassmen and actually has a kitchen inside the room, yay! So there will be more cooking posts soon, I promise.

But on another note, I am addicted to the game King of Loathing. It is a free comical online roleplaying game, which I love because you can play insane classes like an Accordion Thief or a Pastamancer. Plus there are adorable and crazy monsters, like the Sabre-Toothed Lime!

Upon seeing this cute lime, I decided to make a knitted version for myself. I found Peachcake’s pattern, but since I hate double-pointed needles, I made a straight needles version of the pattern! I give Peachcake full credit though for figuring out the needed increases/decreases to get the lime shape. (note: the Sabre-Toothed Lime’s mouth is made with white felt and black fabric paint)

Bind off all stitches, leaving a 6″ tail. Put right sides together and use the tail to sew the lemon/lime until 1.5″ is left unsewn, turn inside out and stuff, then sew the rest shut. Feel free to paint or embroider a face upon your newly made fruit!

  1. Knitted the lime last night and just luv it. I.m now doing the lemon and using them for tablet holders that I created as I was getting cramped hands from gripping that darn tablet. Been knitting over 50 years.
