I’m going to keep this post today short and sweet as I have my baby shower tomorrow (eek!) – forgive me for skipping the long and involved intro!
For this week’s Bake Shop Blanket Square you’ll need to start by making a LARGE SIZE CROCHET HEART following THIS pattern (video tutorial there also) in a baby pink color.
Then proceed by following the pattern below. The video tutorial below also picks up after you’ve made the large heart in baby pink.
-Worsted weight yarn: I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Pink, White, and Kelly Green
-Size H 5mm crochet hook

*Base of the strawberry is the large heart from this pattern in Pink*
Begin with a slip knot in Kelly Green, Ch 7
1st Leaf: Dc in 4th st from hook, Dc in next st, Hdc in next st, sl st in last st, don’t turn
2nd Leaf: Ch 8, Dc in 4th Ch from hook, Dc in next 2 sts, Hdc in next st, sl st in last st, don’t turn
3rd Leaf: Ch 7, Dc in 4th Ch from hook, Dc in next st, Hdc in next st, sl st in last st, sl st in top of 2nd leaf
Stem: Ch 5, sl st in 1st st from hook and in next 4 sts, sl st in top of 1st leaf, finish off leaving a long tail for sewing
Sew around edges of 3 leaves onto top of the heart – I didn’t sew down the stem
Snip a 2ft long piece of white yarn. Using your tapestry needle, sew some french knots on the bottom part of the strawberry (you could also use buttons or beads here!).
*Stitch into the perimeter of the bottom heart portion of the strawberry, not into the leaves or stem*
Round 1: With new color, sl st into top right corner of strawberry, all in the same st: CH 2, 2 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1, skip 3 sts, 3 DC in next st, CH 1, *3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1, skip 3 sts, 3 DC in next st, CH 1*, repeat from * twice more forming a square, sl st to beginning CH 2
Rounds 2-3: Continue in this same manner – in corners 3 DC, CH 3, 3 DC, CH 1 and in all other CH spaces 3 DC, CH 1, finish off, weave ends
Hope you guys enjoy this sweet little strawberry!
