Make 1 SL ST in the next stitch to close and fasten off.
Cut the yarn and leave a long tail
Pass the thread through the sphere made, from the upper center point to the lower one, pulling lightly until it forms a hollow above the sphere.
Stop the tension by making a knot at the base to maintain shape.
Pass the thread from bottom to top and cut.

|1||16 CHs. Make 1 SC in the 2nd CH from hook and in the next 3. 1 TC in the next 5 CHs, 1 DC in the next 3 CHs, 1 SC in the next 2 CHs, 2 SC in the last CH.|
Work in the opposite side of the foundation chain
1 SC in the next 2 CHs, 1 DC in the next 3, 1 TC in the next 5, 1 DC in the next 3, 1 SC in the last CH.

Make 25 CHs and join in ring with 1 SL ST in the first CHs to form a loop. Cut the yarn and leave a long tail. Use it to sew the leaf on the apple.
