Row 1:

  1. Single crochet (sc) in the second chain from the hook.
  2. Continue to sc in each chain across the row.

Row 2:

  1. Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch).
  2. Single crochet (sc) in the first stitch.
  3. Chain 2, skip the next stitch, single crochet (sc) in the next stitch. Repeat * to * across the row.

Row 3:

  1. Chain 1 (does not count as a stitch).
  2. Single crochet (sc) in the first single crochet from the previous row.
  3. Single crochet (sc) in the chain-2 space, single crochet (sc) in the next single crochet. Repeat * to * across the row.

Rows 4 and Beyond:

  1. Continue to alternate between Rows 2 and 3 until your square is as tall as you desire.

Creating the Fruit Garden Motif:

  1. To add fruit motifs, select the colors of yarn for the fruits you want to crochet (e.g., red for apples, yellow for bananas, orange for oranges) and follow a fruit motif pattern. Stitch these motifs onto your square as you go, positioning them creatively to form your fruit garden.


  1. Once your square is the size you want and you’ve added your fruit garden motif, finish off your yarn, weave in all loose ends neatly, and trim excess yarn.
