Use any yarn weight and hook size to achieve a tight enough stitch so the stuffing won't show through. I used worsted weight cotton yarn and a 3.25 hook for the ones in the example.

Tie off. With yarn needle, stitch the tail through the stitches of round 2, pull to close. Use the tail to poke through the apple to the base of the stem, then back to where you tied it off. Gently pull it just enough to make the stem dimple into the apple. Tie off again and weave in ends.
