Crochet Banana Pattern / Tutorial PDF
This banana is intended to be as lifelike as possible, and is worked end to end (rather than in the round) to create a realistic look to the banana skin.
For an approximately life-sized banana (15cm or 6") you will need:
• 20m (22yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in yellow.
• 1.5m (2yards) of double-knitting (DK, light worsted weight, Category 3) yarn in brown or green.
• a 3.5mm (E-4) crochet hook
• a small quantity of stuffing material
• a yarn needle
Of course you can easily work a larger or smaller banana using heavier or lighter yarn and varying your hook accordingly!
The pattern includes detailed notes on yarn and stuffing choices. The UK pattern names suitable yarns currently available in the UK that work perfectly for this pattern.
This pattern is available in both UK and US crochet terminology. Both files will be available for you on purchase and you can choose whichever you prefer to use.
Important features of my crochet patterns:
My crochet patterns include BOTH a detailed 'tutorial-style' set of instructions with colour photos, AND a succinct unillustrated pattern using standard crochet conventions.
I have developed this style because I find I like to see a lot of detail the first time I work a pattern, but if I then work the same piece again, I don't need the pictures, etc, and indeed they can get in the way when I just want a quick reminder of what I'm doing. The PDF is also structured so that the succinct version, with an area for your own notes, is on a single page, making it easy to just take one sheet of paper with you if you have printed it out for quick reference on the move.
I also hate weaving in yarn ends, so this pattern is designed to be worked all in one, without breaking off the yarn at any point, and you will only have one end of the main colour to work in!
This pattern comes with my full support! If you have any difficulties, please contact me. I am a real person and I'd love to hear from you and see pictures of your finished fruit! :-)
I also sell finished bananas! Please see my other listings.

The Consumer Contracts Regulations does not give you the right to cancel an order for personalized, customized and tailor-made items, but please contact me anyway if you have any issues at all, and we'll work it out together.
CANCELLING YOUR ORDER – Digital Items ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Specific provisions exist in the Consumer Contracts Regulations for digital content.
If you are ordering a digital item, by agreeing to these terms and conditions you are giving your express consent for me to supply you with your digital item within the 14-day cancellation period.

Returns & exchanges
RETURNS & REFUNDS ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
If you wish to return items (this hasn't happened yet!) I'm happy to refund the purchase price plus postage and packing costs, provided the items are returned in perfect (resellable) condition. Here's how it works:
If you wish to return something, you must get in touch with me within 14 days of receiving it. You can do this using the Returns & Refunds Form on my website here: www.littleconkers.co.uk/Little_Conkers/contact-little-conkers or just contact me with the relevant information.
I will process your refund (of the purchase price plus my standard postage and packaging cost) within 14 days of receiving the returned items, provided they are returned in resellable condition.
If you paid for an upgraded delivery service, this will not be refunded in full - I will only refund the amount of my standard postage and packaging service.
A deduction will be made from the refund if the value of the item(s) has been reduced as the result of excessive handling, carelessness or any other reason.
In returning items, you will need to pay for the return postage yourself. I strongly advise that you obtain a certificate of posting (at a minimum) from your Post Office or courier, as if the item is lost in transit you will need to be able to claim for compensation.
If you are returning items to me from outside the United Kingdom, you must mark the package prominently as "Returned Goods". If you don't do this, I will unfortunately have to deduct any customs fees/tax/brokerage charges from the amount I can refund you.
Digital items cannot be returned.
