Strawberry

7/30/2011: I totally fucked up and wrote this pattern at like midnight and it's all messed up am fixing it right now.

7/30/2011: ALL FIXED YAAAY


MATERIALS
  • G Hook
  • F Hook
  • Worsted weight yarn in red, green, and white
  • Tapestry needle
FRUIT

With G Hook

R1: 5 Sc in magic loop.

R2: 2 SC in each st around (10 sts)

R3: SC around (10 sts)


R4: *SC 1, 2 SC in next st* rep 5 times (15 sts)

R5: SC around (15 sts)

R6: *SC 2, 2 SC in next st* rep 5 times (20 sts)

R7: SC around (20 sts)

R8: *SC 3, 2 SC in next st* rep 5 times (25 sts)

R9-R11: SC around (25 sts)

R12: *SC 3, dec 1* rep 5 times (20 sts)

At this point, hold live stitch with a safety pin. Start to embroider seeds, spacing them along evenly around the fruit, until you get up to the live st. Stuff with fiber fill, but leave a bit of room at the top. Pick st back up.

R13: *SC 2, dec 1* rep 5 times (15 sts)

R14: *SC 1, dec 1* rep 5 times (10 sts)

Finish embroidering seeds, then stuff completely with fiber fill.

R15: SC in every other st, bind off. (5 sts) Because the top of my fruit is going to be hidden by leaves, I tie a strong knot, then I weave in the ends.

LEAVES

With F hook

R1: 5 sc in magic loop

R2: 2 sc in every sts, sl st to close round (10 sts)

R3: Ch 5, sl st in second ch from hook, sc in next ch, hdc in next to chs, sl st in next st. Repeat around until you have 10 leaves. Bind off, leaving long tail for sewing. Attach leaves to top of strawberry, weave in ends.

All done!

  6. Thank you for the pattern. I could have done without the "f" word, though. It's so unladylike.
