Strawberry Plant crochet pattern

It’s time for a new classic PlanetJune potted plant pattern! Perfect for the summer season – or adding the feel of summer at any time of year – my realistic Strawberry Plant crochet pattern makes a lovely ornamental piece, with its distinctive leaves, delicate white flowers and plump bright red berries.

About the Design

For this strawberry plant, I was looking to create a simplified design with just the right amount of realism in a compact, well-balanced arrangement. The pot has a stylish textured band, and a new style of decorative edging that keeps the top edge of the pot nice and straight.

This pattern also includes bonus instructions for making adorable individual strawberries – perfect as play food, or to make into a cute keychain.

Pattern Details

I’ve put a lot of thought into making this pattern both easy and enjoyable for you to crochet. While it includes multiple pieces – pot, leaves, flowers, and berries – I’ve carefully designed it to minimise both the number of pieces and the amount of finishing needed:

  • The elements are strategically positioned to give a full and balanced composition without requiring too many pieces.
  • Each triple leaf is crocheted as a single piece, making the process a lot faster than you’d think!
  • My instructions include the easiest methods to hide the yarn ends as you go and assemble the plant with minimal sewing.
  • The complete pattern includes 13 pages, with detailed step-by-step photos for each element and clear diagrams for the final assembly.

I’ve also stuck to my usual design principles: the pattern requires no wires for support, and no tiny hooks or crochet thread. All you need is your usual worsted weight yarn, an E (3.5mm) hook, and some stuffing, and you’ll be ready to create a beautiful, realistic strawberry plant!

Bonus Tutorial: Amigurumi Double Ring

I’ve made a new photo tutorial (for right- and left-handers, of course) to accompany this pattern: the double ring for amigurumi. This technique is a more secure version of the magic ring for crocheting in the round.

This is one of those optional techniques that isn’t often necessary, and I don’t usually recommend it because it’s a little slower and more difficult than a standard magic ring. But it’s a useful technique to add to your arsenal for those times when you need a magic ring with extra strength or security, like making tiny strawberry flowers!
