An Apple a Day

 ice cream apples 004I broke the rules on this one quite a bit. The original pattern has a V in the middle of the yoke, but since the Kokka Apples is quite heavy I opted to leave it straight.

ice cream apples 002I also changed the pocket details to an asymmetrical apple in red cord and added some Perle 8 embroidery for the stalk. The red stitching on the denim seemed an important detail so that altered the yoke joining method but still with a similar result. You should never be afraid to give a bit of yourself into a pattern I reckonice cream apples 009
