Introduction: Crocheted Strawberry With Sliding Flower

Material:
few yarn (cotton or wool):
• red
• white
• yellow
• green
hook for these yarns (for ex. 4 mm)
big needle
stuffing

sc = single crochet
dec = decresing single crochet
inc = incresing single crochet
ch = chain
hdc = half double stitch
dc = double stitch
sl = slip stitch

Leave some yarn, about 5 cm.
Do a magic ring (or you can do 2 ch and do the 1st round in the first ch).

These strawberries is worked in spirals, without close the rounds.

Step 1: Body

Body:
With red yarn:

1st round: 5 sc (5); pull the yarn you leave at the start, so the hole in the center will close;
2nd round: 5 inc in every sc (10);
3rd round: *1 inc 1 sc** - repeat from * to ** 4 more times (15);
4th round: 15 sc (15);
5th round: *1 inc 2 sc** - repeat from * to ** 4 more times (20);
From 6th to 11th rounds: 20 sc (20);
Fill with stuffing;
12th round: *1 dec 2 sc** - repeat from * to ** 4 more times (15);
13th round: *1 dec 1 sc** - repeat from * to ** 4 more times (10);
14th round: 5 dec (5);
Leave a tail to sew the hole close.

Seeds:
With yellow yarn, embroid the seeds, just put them here and there. Hide the tails of this yarn in the body of the strawberry.

Step 2: Leaves

Leaves:
Now with the hook or the needle, embroid with chain stitch on the top of the strawberry 10 leaves.
Follow the diagram.

When you've finished with the leaves, pull a chain out of the center of the top and do a long chain (as long as you desire plus 12 ch).

Turn and on the 12 ch do:
1 sl, 1 sc, 1 hdc, 6 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc 1, sl

Cut the yarn and hide it in the leaf.

Step 3: Flower

Flower:
With yellow yarn:

In a magic ring:
1st round: 5 sc (5); pull the yarn you leave at the start, so the hole in the center will close;
2nd round: 5 inc in every sc (10);
3rd round: 10 sc (10);
Close with a sl.
Turn, leave a little yarn and do anoher of this disk.

With white yarn:
Put the hook in a stitch of the 3rd round of one disk.
1st round: *1 sl; (1 sc, 1 hdc, 2 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc) all in the same stitch ** - repeat from * to ** for other 4 times.
Close with a sl and turn.
Do the same of the previous round on the 2nd disk, but when you do the sl, take the sl of the 1st round to join the flowers.

Hide the tails in the flower.

Push the leaf between the 2 flowers and you'll have your strawberry (with sliding flower)!
