Why Do We Love Strawberry

  1. We love this pattern because it creates a charming and realistic strawberry with intricate details. The structure includes petals, sepals, stamens, and leaves, adding depth and authenticity to the design.
  2. For the best color suggestion, vibrant red for the fruit, green for the sepals, and natural shades for the leaves are recommended. Additionally, there are possibilities for color variations, allowing for personalization and creativity in the project.

  • Flower Bouquet Ideas: Crocheted strawberries can be an excellent addition to flower bouquets, either as the main flower or as accent flowers or foliage/greenery. They can bring a unique and playful element to the bouquet, adding texture and color. Pairing crocheted strawberries with other crochet flowers like daisies or roses can create a charming, handmade bouquet.

Materials

  • Yarn -yarn of four colors, pink, white, yellow, and green
  • Hook – 2.5mm 
  • Flower rod – 16 inches long x 0.08 inches diameter (40cm x 2mm)
  • Iron wire – 0.02 inches diameter ( 0.4mm)
  • Stitch Marker
  • Darning needle
  • Scissors
  • Hot Melt Adhesive
  • Fiberfill

Difficulty

The pattern for crocheting the strawberry is beginner-friendly and consists of basic stitches such as single crochet and double crochet. However, there is a slightly more challenging part in Round 9, where you need to do sc2tog (single crochet two stitches together) and sc3tog (single crochet three stitches together). This decreased technique requires precision, but beginners can master it with practice. Embrace the challenge, as a guided video is available to help you grow your crochet skills.

Stitches and Abbreviations Used

  • Sc – Single crochet
  • Sc2tog – Single crochet 2 stitches together (invisible decrease)
  • Sc3tog – Single crochet 3 stitches together (invisible decrease)
  • Dc – Double crochet
  • Picot st – Picot stitch (a decorative looped stitch)
  • Ss – Slip stitch
  • Hdc – Half double crochet
  • Tr – Triple crochet
  • Dtr – Double treble crochet

Special Stitches

  1. Picot Stitch: Picot stitch creates decorative points or loops by chaining a small number of stitches and slips stitching. This forms a little loop or point that gives the design texture and visual interest.
  2. Decrease (sc2tog): The decrease stitch is used to decrease the stitch count and shape the piece. To work a single crochet decrease (sc2tog), insert the hook into the first stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, insert the hook into the next stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop, yarn over again, and pull through all three loops on the hook.
  3. Decrease (sc3tog): The “sc3tog” stitch is used in the strawberry pattern to decrease three single crochet stitches into one stitch. It helps create shaping and curves in the strawberry’s body, giving it a rounded appearance. Reducing the stitch count helps achieve a smaller circumference for the strawberry’s top part. 
  4. Half Double Crochet (hdc): The half double crochet stitch is used in the strawberry flower stamen to create a taller stitch with more height than a single crochet but less than a double crochet. 
  5. Double Treble Crochet (dtr): The “dtr” stitch is used in the strawberry pattern to create taller stitches and elongated stitches that stand out and provide a unique visual element. To work the double treble (dtr) stitch in crocheting the strawberry pattern, you start by yarn over the hook twice. Then, insert the hook into the designated stitch. Yarn over and pull up a loop, creating five loops on the hook. Next, yarn over again and pull through two loops, repeating this step four more times until only one loop remains on the hook
