Orange wedge complete, make it green, yellow or pink to make your favorite citrus.

Assemble

Assemble each wedge in the same manner, the color choice may vary, here are my choices:

Watermelon – White

Orange – White

Apple – Green or Red

Kiwi – Tan

  1. Place the wedges on top of each other with the right sides facing out.

    free crochet pattern mini fruit wedge bookmark
    Both wedges have the right side facing out.
  2. With your border color, complete a standing SC in the upper left corner, going through both pieces of fabric.

    free crochet pattern mini fruit wedge bookmark
    Leave the tow rounded part of wedge open.
  3. Continue to SC around both sides of wedge, I added roughly 2SC stitches per row, you will need two to 3 around the tip.  No need to count stitches just place them where they look good.

    free crochet pattern mini fruit wedge bookmark
    Join the fabrics together by SC around two wedge sides.
  4. Finish off and enjoy!

    To avoid large gaps, insert your hook under one to two strands on each piece, of border rows, crocheting over the entire stitch can cause large holes.
