Strawberry Knitting Pattern

My garden is growing so many strawberries at the moment, and they are fully on my mind. This pattern has been created for a specific purpose, to be announced later, but can also be made into a brooch, a toy or just as a stash buster. I’m tempted to make a few for the garden, as evidently fake berries before the season begins puts the birds off when the real ones come along (as they think they are fake ones…)

Knitted on 4 double pointed needles. This is seamless, so you have to stuff it before it is finished…

You will need:
4 x 4mm dpn
Red DK yarn
Green DK yarn
Stuffing

Strawberry

Cast on 6 (2 stitches on 3 needles)
Knit 1 rotation

Knit front and back on every stitch (leads to 4 stitches on each needle)
Knit 2 rotations
Knit 1 front and back, knit 2, knit 1 front and back – repeat on the other 2 needles. This will give you 6 stitches on each needle
Knit 3 rotations
Knit 1 front and back, knit 4, knit 1 front and back – repeat on the other 2 needles. This will give you 8 stitches on each needle
Knit 1 rotation
Knit 2 red, knit 1 green, knit 2 red, knit 1 green, knit 2 red. Repeat on other two needles.
Knit 1 red, knit 3 green, knit 1 red, knit 2 green, knit 1 red. Repeat on other two needles.
Knit 1 rotation green
K2 tog, knit 4, k2 tog. Repeat on other two needles.
Knit 1 rotation

K2 tog over whole rotation

You now have 3 stitches, one on each needle. Slip onto one needle.
Continue with icord for 4 rows.
Cast off

Decorate with small yellow stitches as seeds if you like. (This picture will follow after the top secret project is revealed)
