▪ 3 colours of sport weight yarn (50g = 160m), 3.00 mm crochet hook, stuffing, pins, tapestry needle, scissors

The strawberry is crocheted from the bottom up in a continuous spiral. Begin by crocheting a magic circle with yarn A.

r 1: 2 ch, 6 sc in the second chain from the hook. (6) = magic circle

r 2: [1 sc, inc]x3. (9)

r 3: [2 sc, inc]x3. (12)

r 4: [3 sc, inc]x3. (15)

r 5: [4 sc, inc]x3. (18)

r 6: [5 sc, inc]x3. (21)

r 11: [1 sc, dec]x6. (12)

▪ Stuff the strawberry.

r 12: [dec]x6. (6)

▪ Cut off the yarn and fasten the ends.

The leafy part is crocheted with yarn B.

r 1: 2 ch, 6 sc in the second chain from the hook = magic circle (6)

r 2: [4 ch, starting in the 2nd chain from the hook, crochet 3 sc along the chain, sl st in the next stitch]x6. (6 leafy things)

▪ Cut off the yarn but save approximately 20 cm so that you have something to attach the leafy thing to the strawberry with. Fasten the other yarn end.


▪ Sew the leafy part on to the top of the strawberry.

▪ With yarn C embroider seeds on to the strawberry.
