I made this cute crochet Watermelon garland to decorate the kitchen with my favorite summertime fruit. I wish consistently selecting a good watermelon from a large box of them at the grocery store were as easy as crocheting this fun item!

1. Make watermelon slices. For my garland, I’ve made a total of five slices – three red ones and two pink ones. To make your garland fun, you can add eyes and smile to watermelons as I did.
You can always make your garland shorter or longer and adjust the number of pieces as needed.
2. Block all the pieces as necessary.
3. Making a garland.
You have a couple of options on how to make the garland. One option is to crochet a chain and join each piece to the chain with single crochet evenly.
You can also crochet a chain first and then carefully sew each piece to the string, or you can use small clothespins to hang pieces as I did.
The length of the chain depends on how long you want your garland to be. My chain is about 55” long. Leave on each end about 5-7 inches for tying the garland, then arrange the pieces.
