I love pomegranates, i’m actually addicted to them visually, symbolically and taste-wise.
In regions that they grow, including Cyprus (where I live) they symbolize prosperity and fertility and are often given as wedding favours. In China it is also a very common symbol for wishing the new year to be a ‘fruitful’ one.
This is a PDF pattern with which you can make a quick Pomegranate for yourself or as a present to the loved ones.

A new PDF pattern for Crochet Hanging Pomegranates.
Most of my friends already know my passion for this fruit, specifically for its symbolism, beauty and taste. I have a lot of pomegranates around the house; dried ones, drawn on paper and on bags, decorative ones and since I love them so much I thought why not crochet them and this is what I came up with. Already three of these are decorating our house and my car, and soon they will also become gifts to friends and family.
Pomegranate is a symbol of prosperity and fertility in many regions; Mediterranean, Middle East, Caucasus, India, China, Peru… basically where they are grown and often they are given as presents to newlyweds. Except for their symbol they are rich in antioxidants and very tasty.
