It took me a minute to figure out how I wanted to arrange the fruit on top, since there isn’t a lot of room to work with, plus, you can’t really put fruit over the tissue opening! But I think it turned out really cute!

This is a quick pattern for a lemon, lime, orange, or citrus slice to add on top of your cozies!
In the past, I have crocheted these with Cascade 220, since it comes in so many great colors, but I modified the pattern a little bit for a more regular worsted weight yarn, like Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice, because it is more accessible in stores.
For any kind of citrus slice, there will usually be three colors: A) the fruit flesh color, which is general more pale than the skin, B) white, or the rind color, C) the skin color.
I realize that this is not a cake at all, but, it’s still a tissue box cozy! The pattern is free at Michaels.com and includes the turkey, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, and lettuce dish cloth.
If you wanted to, you could use this pattern for baby carrots on a carrot cake tissue cozy.
If you leave the tops off the tomatoes, they can instantly become cherries :).
This free pattern originally appeared at Michaels.com but is now also up on my regular blog since Michaels added e-commerce to their site and re-vamped their pattern section. It provides a great guide for a basic long tissue box cozy using Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice and includes a motif for some cute frosting as well as instructions for strawberries, kiwi slices, and blueberries.
