Amigurumi Strawberry Free Crochet Pattern

This free crochet pattern for my amigurumi strawberry is a great little project for beginners! But I’m sure you’ll enjoy it just as much if you’re a seasoned crocheter. 

I received a request for a strawberry from a lovely subscriber on YouTube ages ago and now I finally made one. 🙂

Instructions

Crochet the strawberry in red

Rd 1: Sc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rd 2: Inc in all 6 st (12)

Rd 3: [sc in next st, inc in next st]*6 (18)

Rd 4: [sc in next 2 st, inc in next st]*6 (24)

Rd 5: Sc in all 24 st (24)

Rd 6: Sc in next 3 st, dec, [sc in next 6 st, dec]*2, sc in next 3 st (21)

Rd 7: [sc in next 5 st, dec]*3 (18)

Rd 8: Sc in next 2 st, dec, [sc in next 4 st, dec]*2, sc in next 2 st (15)

If you want to give your strawberry a face, attach the eyes now between rd 6 and 7 with about 4 st space in between.

Embroider the mouth with black embroidery floss and a large eyed sewing needle in a shallow V shape, half on rd 7 and half on rd 8.

Start filing the strawberry with fiberfill. Make sure to fill the space above, in between and on the sides of the back ends of the eyes. Continue filling as you go.

Rd 9: [sc in next 3 st, dec]*3 (12)

Rd 10: Sc in next st, dec, [sc in next 2 st, dec]*2, sc in next st (9)

Rd 11: [sc in next st, dec]*3 (6)

Fasten off, close the round and weave in the yarn end.

Crochet the calyx in green

Now we crochet the leafy part of the strawberry.

Rd 1: Sc 6 in magic ring (6)

Rd 2: Sl st in next st, [ch 4, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, sc in next ch, sl st in next st of rd]*6

Fasten off with an invisible finish, leaving a long end for sewing. Set it aside for later.

Embroider the seeds

Cut a long piece of yellow embroidery floss and thread it on your yarn needle. Stitch through the top middle of the strawberry to wherever you want to start embroidering the seeds. Make 1 rd high vertical stitches and spread them out randomly. Move all around the strawberry until it is covered with seeds. You can see how I did this here in my video.

Sew on the calyx

All that’s left to do is sew the leafy part on the top withe the long green yarn end.

And that’s it! Finished is your cute little strawberry! 🙂
