Another redonkulous cozie

People, not since the MOST RIDICULOUS COZIE EVAR have we seen such a hilarious piece of craftmanship. Will you please check out the Apple cozie: [’cause apples need adornment and warmth and knitted leafs and buttons] More views here!


Yes, for the apple who has everything, Hilary R.



  1. Bleen!!! Good morning everyone!

  2. woop woop! i got to blee-eeen!! i got to bleee-eeen!

    gettin up early (to call in “sick” [“cough-cough”])certainly has its rewards. happy reeally long weekend everyone! [“cough-cough”]


  3. oh I love it!!!! although the tree sweater is definitely one of my all time favorites

  4. shout out to mah fruit ho’s:

    represent yo ^^

    that’s one cute apple; i’m totally cereal

  5. Yes, my name is really Cricket says:

    You people realize now that I’ll be making one or two of these this weekend, right?

  6. LOL! They don’t make cozies this cute for humans …

  7. HOLY CRAAAAAaaaaaapppppp….

    [fades off into cardiac cuteness-induced arrest]

  8. wow, they’ve actually sold out of the cozies! i guess there was a need for them.

  9. HopelessRomantic says:

    Actually these are to keep your apple from bruising in your lunchbox.

  10. Isn’t that the cozy that the apple formerly known as Prince used to wear?!

  11. A large LOL for that cozy, that is something else. I do not think that I will be making this one but its certainly interesting.

  12. You guys, seriously. I can’t believe anyone thinks this is cute. That apple was born as a Granny Smith, and it is inappropriate for it to go around promoting itself as a Red Delicious.

    You all should really be ashamed of yourselves.


  13. Oh. My. I want one. Cutest knitted item ever.

  14. Knitting on CO? Another reason to love you/obsessively watch you daily.

  15. Piggalette says:

    Very cute/cool. Though it looks crocheted rather than knitted. Who cares, you ask? Well, the stickers (me) and the hookers are very particular about what gets attributed to their craft. 🙂 Though, it does seem all the sweet, innovative stuff is crocheted. *pout*

  16. Did anyone notice that they are SOLD OUT?!?11

  17. Diane, perhaps Granny is just trying on her Halloween costume?

    I lerv this — tewtally redonk!

  18. Never fear, everyone! That one is sold out, but there are more here:

    I’d just added this into my favorites yesterday, so seeing it on here made me feel all special! 🙂

  19. Never fear, Piggalette, that is tewtelly knitted. Don’t you see the stockinette stitch?

    What a fab idea…AND cute! I love it that people take the time to do silly things like this! Do they make them for other fruits too?

  20. …oh yes, i see they make a pear cozy too.

  21. I bring an apple to work almost every day and I believe I truley NEED an apple cozy.
    …and Piggalette, take heart, it is indeed knitted.Score one for the stickers.

  22. headscratcher says:

    Both a sticker & a hooker here (though sticker is my first love). And that’s very much knitted, on a fine gauge too.

    Shame they be sold out. 😦 But I’ve bookmarked the sight and as soon as she makes some more, I’m snatching up two, one for me and one for mum.

  23. NotSupposedToBeDoingThisAtWork says:

    There’s nothing wrong with crochet! it’s fun too! 🙂 though this cutie is def. knitted, as has been said.

    I’m a hooker myself… umm, you know what I mean. Teaching myself the sticks though. Definitely a different experience, though equally enjoyable. I don’t think I’m ready for this yet, though… afghans only right now!

    yay hookers and stickers! 😀

  24. luvinmalssomuch says:

    That is just so silly. I love it.

  25. This is totally OT– but anyone out there who likes to surf Etsy– what is it with them and octopi? Is it like an unoffical symbol or something? I never saw so many curly art-nouveau octopi in one place.

  26. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    About time to, after all young eyes should not see the flower (sexual)end of fruit. Now I must go a adjust the covers on the table legs. Oh forgive me lord for I have uttered legs. Mea culp mea maxima culpa.

  27. PS, no, that’s not crocheted– Looks knitted to me. Look at the angle of the threads converging.

  28. Actually, having had several fruit-bruisings while transporting my lunch from home to work, I can see the point of this! A little extra cushioning for the apple from the travails of the subway sounds like a great idea to me.

  29. Kind of a risqué, low-cut sweater for such a young apple, eh?

  30. I love the apple cozies! They are fun! I think they are going to be x-mas gifts!

  31. If anyone ever finds a pattern for this, please post! I want to make one. My apples hardly ever survive the subway ride to work unscathed.

  32. murkadurka says:

    well, you know kids these days… always showing off what their cross pollinators gave them.

  33. OMG! It's Carrie says:

    To The Honourable Gladys Anstruther: Regarding your utterance of the word (whispered very quietly) legs. Didn’t you mean limbs?

    PS, your unmentionables are showing.

  34. I’ve loved that since the moment I saw it!!

    She has more in her shop…and if you contact her I’m sure she’ll be delighted to make more 🙂

    LOVE IT!

  35. The Honourable Gladys Anstruther says:

    Carrie: Landsakes honey child, are they really?well I am off to see father O’bubblegum and confess.

  36. But who likes warm fruit (unless it’s in compote form)?? I say, let the apple freeze.

  37. Gr Smith loooked left and right out the doorway. Then he looked across the street and saw the tail. the guy was there alright… Well there was nothing to do but head out and hope his disguise had done the trick. If not it would be applesauce for this spy.

  38. I’m going to spoil the fun and let the knitting ladies know that they can make their own. The pattern can be found in this book:

    I’ve been meaning to make it for a while, so it’s nice to know that it is actually super cute!

  39. DUDE! If this was a peach, can you imagine the CLEAVAGE???

  40. Wait, isn’t this Product Cuteness?

  41. luvinmalssomuch says:

    Okay okay I don’t get it. Why isn’t the whole apple covered. Is the hole where you take a bite? IIIIII just don’t get it.

  42. I totally knit one of those last spring! Unfortunately, my gauge was all wrong, and it came out too small to fit any apple that might exist on this planet. This one’s cute!

  43. OMG! I would seriously love to see that – peach cleavage, I know fruit can be *very* sexy and that would just make my week!

    *falls off chair laughing*

  44. Someone has WAY too much free time to create these!!!!

    Hope they are also creating cute blankets for the babies at hospitals that need some extra love.

    Most hospitals across the country have some sort of program like this. I’m in Winston-Salem, NC and we have the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center: Brenner’s Childrens Hospital that has a program for new babies and children. Many people create small quilts for the children to have during their stay.

    Hope the cozy “knitters” spread to all critters, great and small (fruit included)!

  45. I actually own one of these from that Etsy store (she also makes them for pears) and they are adorable and useful. I won’t eat apples that have been bruised and these help protect them. So useful and adorable not ridiculous.

  46. had i had a apple cozy.
    i would not have had to throw away my “work apple” this morning. which got all bruised up and battered from rolling around on my desk.
    i wonder if you could crochet one? I dont know how to knit.
    Or could one “purchase” an apple cozy?

  47. Love it!


    And, of course, it is cute too :).

  49. This is the new, most redonkulous sweater I’VE seen since the tree sweater AND the little sheepies in wool coats.

    Oh yeah.

  50. jules — plum cozy?

    Sparklie — useful/adorable and redonk are not mutually exclusive. Besides, redonk is a GOOD thing.

    I do okay with apples. It’s peaches and bananas I can’t seem to transport without damage. I guess they’d need some kind of little suits of armor, though. /Googling/ Nope, not yet.

  51. Knitting Story:

    Being the totally-devoid-of-homey-arts female that I am, I thought it would be cool to teach myself how to at least knit sweater TUBE TOPS (that’s right) for my dachshunds so I made a sojourn out to our local craft store. Needles er needless to say, I was all thumbs and got really frustrated and took a nap. When I woke up my fiance had taught himself to knit and had made a little square potholder–he had even cast off!–amazing considering his lack of opposable thumbs 😉 ! I beat him over the head with a sofa pillow cuz I was kind of pissed, but ran off giggling to get me camera so I could capture his new found skill to show his friends who would no doubt rag him.

    Seriously though, I shall treasure his little potholder for the rest of my life even if he never officially *gave* it to ME ^^

  52. Mary (the first) says:

    And the best part is .. it’s machine washable and dryable!! I can just see it floating around in there with my (previously mentioned by someone) “unmentionables”. TOO cute

  53. to answer luvinmalssomuch – I believe the hole is stictly for style.You don’t want to confuse your apple cozy for someone else’s, do you?

  54. OMG! It's Carrie says:

    You can get them from her in blue and purple AND you can get a Pear Cozy!!!!

  55. Actually, the hole would be so that you can actually fit the apple in the cozy. 🙂

    How adorable!

  56. I believe the hole is so you can actually get your apple into it. The apple would never fit through the tiny hole at the top! It seems that you could modify the design and add a zipper, though, if you wanted your apple to be modestly dressed.

  57. OMG! It's Carrie says:

    Gladys: I made my comment because my grandmother would have never said the word legs in front of anyone.. they were your limbs. She never said underwear either, it was unmentionables. She was born in 1902, things were different and was so sweet with those things. Oh, she never said the name of a disease outloud either, people got (cancer – whispered as low as possible). Sigh, now I miss my cats, my dog AND my gramma and grampa. :*^(

  58. Would this be an Apple iCozy?

  59. OMG! It's Carrie says:

    OMG! again – I looked at all she sells and it’s all great, coffee cup sleeves, booties, shawls, coasters, slippers and so many pretty colors and Ipod covers. I want a variegated apple cover now! And a pear one!

  60. one of the erins says:

    The hole is so you can get the apple in. Also what the button is for at the top.

  61. one of the erins says:

    Yikes! Look what happens when I take too long to read the other comments, I get repetitive!

  62. ha! “this item sold out on 8-31-2007”
    and does anyone know why i cant see the pictures on the ETSY ?

  63. Granny Smith will be warm and cozy this fall. She looks great in red!

  64. Hehe, the really sad part about this interesting knitting project is the seller has sold out of them. (I can’t believe people actually buy these). Adorable, but ridikulous.

  65. Hmmm…I’m having a new idea for a Prisoner Rehabilitation Ministry. Teach the hardened criminals to knit apple cozies…

  66. as they say,, the apple cozie doesn’t fall too far from the tree cozie.

    : )

  67. I linked your blog to mine for Blog Day 2007. Happy Blog Day!

  68. Wow, people sell all sorts of crazy things on etsy, don’t they? [plotting to get my own adorable products featured on CO….]

  69. Now all it needs is a cunning hat.

  70. bcteagirl says:

    I want one!!!!

  71. I’m pleased that … at last… the sense of propriety has prevailed….

    No More Naked Fruit…. get a petition going….

  72. I think it is def Andi for the win, with the sexy peach comment!
    And for the person who believes that people with so much time on their hands should be dilligently knitting for hospitals, I say, a little nonsense now and then is cherished by the wisest men.

  73. Cuss cuss! Laughter, laughter!
    Three weeks with no CO and I come back to this?
    What. IS. it.?
    I’m in stitches here! Get it? Stitches.
    Erm, that is one saucy apple!
    Oh, don’t pommel me.

  74. Persephone says:

    Kara, awesome Firefly reference. 🙂

    This might be the last straw for me: I officially have to learn to knit now.

  75. Shannon Johnson says:

    HA Laugh out loud.

  76. I went to get one for my son’s teacher… and they are all sold out! I hope more are made 🙂

  77. Hootiest, fruitiest, cutiest post ever!

  78. I’d rather see this on an animal than a delicious fruit.

  79. So did Granny Smith make this herself?

  80. acelightning says:

    Um… I always just wrapped a couple of paper napkins around lunchbox fruit to keep it from getting bruised. Then I’d have the napkins to use while I was eating my bruise-free fruit.

  81. Cassandra says:

    I’m still crossing my fingers for grape cozies. And I don’t mean “grape bunch” cozies, I mean cozies for each individual grape. Just in case. In purple and green please. kthx

  82. Aubrey – For her son, Johnny Appleseed.

  83. I know where to get the patterns for this li’l bugger…and a banana cozy too! Mwuhahahaha! I now hold you in thrall!

  84. Whoops, I see 1 in stock! Someone here who likes apples better grab it. (Not me, though, I don’t like them apples.)

  85. banana cozy or banana hammock, call it what you will…

    easier to find too, just check the men’s department 😉

    how bout dem apples?

  86. Cute. Hey, at least it is not a cheesy as the “scrap yarn” Diet Coke cozzies I see around. Kudos chica.

  87. Awwww.. the apple is pretending it’s red.

  88. Apples today have it so easy. Back when I was an apple you got bumped and bruised and you were thankful for it!

  89. But it’s all settled in and cosy, I’d never have the heart to eat it.

  90. pyrit –

    Ah, little Johnny. A pippin off the old block.

  91. Hookers and stickers, oh my!

    This reminds me of a story my grandad used to tell about his 5 sisters sitting around crocheting and he walked in and said, “Oh my, I walked in a room full of hookers.”

    He said he never knew his sisters had such good aim.

  92. This falls into the “OMG…WTF were they thinking?” category.

    So ridiculous it’s adorable.

  93. This falls into the “OMG…WTF were they thinking?” category.

    So ridiculous it’s adorable.

  94. I am sorry but that is photoshopped. The stem just does not look right. Still cute though.

  95. NYgirly – He knits and chases the dogs with his handmade shoes? He’s a keeper.

  96. I already own one of these – they’re very cute and absolutely excellent for lunchboxes! It’s NOT photoshopped. The seller is lovely too. Go forth and cosy!

    She also makes them for pears 🙂

  97. I can’t believe it – something I had seen online (at Etsy) before it was CO’d !

  98. headscratcher says:

    What the frell is up with this constant photoshop accusations these days?

  99. Mick Hamblen says:

    Needs a Apple Inc. icon knitted in front. And Mac users go nuts!

  100. Yitzysmommie says:

    Love it! I don’t think I could take the apple’s teensy leetle cosy off and eat it, tho.

  101. Thx Tugs :)))

    We’re getting married 3/1/08 and then he can’t get away! *chortle*

  102. ROFL!!!!!!! Shelly!

  103. Ummm….I was kidding about the photo being photoshopped. Who would photoshop a picture of an apple wearing a sweater?

  104. mebbe a jealous kumquat? LOL

  105. or a piqued Pear

  106. Did you hear me (dedicated sticker, hooker, spinner, weaver, needle-felter, macrame-er, braider, and otherwise fuzzy-Velcroed maniac) say that about holding you in thrall with banananananana cozy patterns?


  108. I bought one. That is absolutely redonk and I love it. I will be giving it to my mom who is a teacher! Awesome find.

  109. Oy vey! I wonder how many fruit cozzies we’ll be seeing in the future. 2QT!

  110. EEEEE!!! So gorgeous!! ANd definately not sold out! Check out th “seller’s other items” to see her other knitted goodies! Soo cuuuteee!

  111. cute AND functional – awesome!

  112. Aaaaaaand…
    It’s now a Fark Photoshop contest!
