Leaves & Stem

In green yarn:

ch 4, turn work

going backwards: sl st., sc, 2 dc.

This is one leaf.

repeat 4 times,

and vary the chain length from ch 4 to ch 6.

You now have a ring of leaves.

Bring the thread towards the center of your work to make the stem:

ch 7, turn work

dc  in each st.

Cut the thread after a few inches (see picture).

The section that is facing you in the center is going to be the stem.

crochet_strawberry_stem

Pull this thread through this section pulling the stitches from the left and the right of the stem together. (see picture)

Putting your Strawberry Together

Place the green leaves on top of the red strawberry and stitch it together with a few stitches.

Final Touches

To make your strawberry look more realistic, use some thin yarn or double embroidery and mark a few seeds on the strawberry.

Done.
