Banana, Revised

Last year, I made a banana. I wrote the pattern with sport weight yarn, which is a little inconvenient. I never tested it out with worsted weight, ’cause I got images of these huge bananas dancing around. So, I wrote a new pattern with worsted weight, to be the same scale as all my other fruit. I’m replacing the pattern link on Ravelry with this one, but I will keep the old pattern around just in case you want a huge banana. Or have some yellow sport weight lying around.
