Uber Easy Amigurumi Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pattern


Today is such a great day! My house is filled with the scent of the delicious pork roast that I have cooking in the oven, I have been working on custom orders, and I can rest easy as I saw on yahoo news that Brittany Spears is going to be allowed to see her kids.

When I started this blog in January, I was planning to share my original crochet pattern for the chcocolate covered strawberry before valentines day....obviously, that did not happen. Beter late than never. Here you go - straight from the depths of my brain to my blog:


Materials:

Red and Green yarn
size G crochet hook
Tapestry needle
Poly-fil
Brown fabric paint(make sure it has a shiny finish when dry)


With Red yarn:
Round 1: Ch 2, 5 sc in second chain from hook (5)
Round 2: 1 sc in each st (5)
Round 3: 2 sc in each st (10)
Round 4: 1 sc in each st (10)
Round 5: 1 sc in each st (10)
Round 6: *Dec across 2 st. Repeat from * around (5)

At this point, stuff a tiny bit of polyfil in the strawberry.

With Green yarn:
Round 7: 2 sc in each st(10)
finish off

Now, using the brown fabric paint, cover the end of the strawberry and let dry. Attach a magnet or pinback and you are good to go!
