Crocheted strawberry


Great as a summer treat! I have used bulky wool yarn and a 3.75mm crochet hook to make a  fairly large strawberry. Use thinner yarn and a smaller hook for a smaller berry :)

You will need:

* Red & green yarn
* A suitable crochet hook
* A little stuffing
* Needle for sewing

Berry:

With red yarn,
6 sc in ring
*1 sc, inc* three times - 9 sts
Sc around
*2 sc, inc* three times - 12 sts
*3 sc, inc* three times - 15 sts
*4 sc, inc* three times - 18 sts
*5 sc, inc* three times - 21 sts
*6 sc, inc* three times - 24 sts
Sc around
*3 sc, inc* six times - 30 sts
Sc around 2 rounds
*1 sc, dec* ten times - 20 sts
10 dec - 10 sts
Stuff the strawberry
5 dec - 5 sts
Break yarn, weave the yarn end through the last 5 sts and pull tight to close the hole. Weave in end


Leaves on top:
With green yarn,
6 sc in ring, sl st in first sc to close round
*chain 4, trc dec (the same as a trc cluster with 2 trc) in same space, chain 2, sl st in 2nd loop from hook, chain 4, sl st in next sc from first round* repeat five more times to make six leaves
Break yarn, pull the end through to the back and use this to attach the leaves to the top of the strawberry


Make a bunch of these and place them in a pretty bowl to decorate your summer table :)

  12. I was also confused on the leaves. I think the author may have meant a triple crochet increase where they wrote "trc dec". Here is the stitch I used (abbreviated "trc inc") in place of it. It came out looking very similar to the photo, though it may not be what the author originally intended--please correct me if it is not. I love the shape of the strawberry in this pattern!

    trc inc = yo twice, insert hook through stitch, yo and pull through; (yo and pull through 2 loops) twice (2 loops left on hook); yo twice, insert hook through stitch, yo and pull through; (yo and pull through 2 loops) twice; yo and pull through remaining 3 loops.

      Hi! Thanks to your reply I finally finished my strawberry, the tips of the leaves are more round than the ones in the original but worked great anyway! To return to the original circle once the leave was finished I used the slip stich. Is my first crochet, I'm somewhat like proud ^^
