strawberry / morango

(horrible, horrible photo!)

I did a quick seach for strawberries patterns before posting mine here. I thought i would find dozens,but i didn't... so i guess it's ok to post one more ;)
The links to the ones i 've found are below , plus a link for super yummy strawberries to sew.

* Please note that i am using yarns of 2 different weights in this pattern, and i am in Brasil so i cannot help you with yarn suggestions. If you don't have the yarn required for the leaves, you could try this :
ch 2, *slip stitch on second chain from hook, ch3, dc, ch2, slip stitch" 5 times, leave yarn to sew to the strawberry and use it to make a loop on the center (if you plan to hang your strawberry ) or just pull the yarn through the middle after sewing to create a stem. :) i didn't try it myself, so let me know if it works ;)

life size strawberries

3.00mm hook for the strawberry
2.00mm hook for leaves
tapestry needle
green and red scrap yarns

erms and abbreviations:
scT : scs worked on the same stitch)
scD : decrease
* * : repeat

using red yarn
2)*2sct, sc next 2 sc* ( 9 st)
3)*2sct, sc next 3 sc* (12 st)
4) sc around ( 12 st)
5) *2sct, 3 sc* ( 15 st)
6) sc around
7) *2sct, 4 sc* (18 st)
8) *2sct, 2 sc* ( 24 st)
9) sc around
10) *scD, 6 sc* (21 st)
11) sc
12) *scD, 1 sc* (14 st)
13) scD around
sew hole closed

leaves and stem
1) 5 sc
2) 2 scT each sc ( 10 st)
3) in one sc make *slip stitch , 1hdc, Dc, picot* and on the next sc : *Dc, hdc, slip stitch* repeat it for the next 4 pairs of sc
f.O, leave yarn to sew
while sewing, pull the yarn through the middle of the leaves, make a loop to create a little handle. hold it and continue sewing . you can finish the handle with buttonhole stitch, so it looks cuter and more durable.
or you can make a simple stem, just by pulling the yarn through the middle of the leaves after sewing them to the strawberry

phew! it was much more complicated to write the instructions for the stem in english than to make a basket of strawberries! hope it's clear, if not , feel free to email me

And now, the links for the strawberries i found

strawberries with chocolate! at Naida's crochet
