Cute Crochet banana - Basic Steps of Crochet

The crochet peeling banana

Is the banana above lovely? And do you want a one? Now pick up your crochet hook to crochet by yourself.It is easy and simple.

Step 1: Hold crochet hook in right hand and make a slip knot on hook.

Step 2: Bring yarn over hook from back to front and grab it with hook.

Step 3: Draw hooked yarn through slip knot and onto hook. This makes one chain stitch.

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 in sequence 28 more times. You should have 29 chain stitches and one loop will remain on hook.

Step 4: Skip the first chain stitch.

Step 5: Insert hook into center of next chain stitch. Draw yarn through the chain stitch and up onto the hook. There are now 2 loops on hook.

Step 6: Bring yarn over hook from back to front, and draw it through both loops on hook. One loop remains on the hook, and you have just made one single crochet stitch.

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 in each of the remaining 27 chains--be sure to work in the very last chain. You have now completed one row of single crochet. Measure your work; it should be about 7" wide. If it is too wide, try again with fewer beginning chains. If it is too narrow, try again with more beginning chains.

Step 7: At the end of the row, make one chain stitch, then turn the work counter-clockwise, leaving the hook in the chain.Now you can begin another row, working into the stitches of the previous row.

Step 8: Make one single crochet stitch in first stitch and in each remaining stitch of the previous row. Be sure to work into the last stitch. Chain 1, turn.

Repeat Step 8 until the block measures 9" long.

Finishing: Cut the yarn from the skein, leaving a 6" end. Draw the hook straight up, bringing the yarn through the remaining loop on the hook.

  4. Here you guys. This is a bit late, but since this image still comes up first in google I figured I'd help you out.
    Ch 3. Join with sl st in first ch. Ch 6 into ring. Increase every other stitch until you have 9 stitches. Crochet around until it is the desired length. One round of decrease every other stitch until you have 6 stitches, to make the new point. Decrease every stitch, sl st through and fasten off. Pull yarn from finished end through to starting end to round it a bit.
    I stuffed mine with yarn scraps as I crocheted it and attached it to a banana split baby mobile =)
    This is for the banana only, no peel. I wasn't interested in the peel.
