This knitting pattern from Tonya Staab of Currently Crafting is such a fun project for spring. Give as little ornaments, use as table decoration or knit as an addition to a child's play kitchen. These little strawberries would make great embellishments for gift bags or even totes.
 

Knit Punnet of Strawberries


Materials:

  • red yarn - double up if thin. I used Red Heart Super Saver 4ply doubled for this pattern
  • 5.0 0mm double pointed needles
  • Poly-fil
  • Green felt
  • Green embroidery thread
  • Tapestry and embroidery needles
  • Punnet


Instructions:

Cast on 6 stitches.

Knit Strawberries 1

Separate between 3 needles - 2 stitches per needle.

Knit Strawberries 2

1st row - knit in the round
2nd row - increase 1 stitch at the beginning of each needle

Knit Strawberries 3

Repeat 1st two rows until there are 8 stitches on each needle.
Knit one more round. Leave a long end and cut the yarn.
Using a tapestry needle stitch together the wrong side of the cast on end so there is no hole.
Using the tapestry needle, gather up all remaining stitches on the needles, don't pull too tightly yet.
If the strawberry is wrong-side out, turn it the right way.
Stuff the strawberry with Poly-fil.
Gather up the end tightly and put a few stitches in the top to hold it together.

Knit Strawberries 4

Cut a piece of green felt to resemble the top of a strawberry. It doesn't have to be even and all strawberries can look a little different.
Using the embroidery needle and thread stitch a large cross in the center of the leaf to attach it to the top of the strawberry.

what size needle for this project? What guage yarn?

Hi there, unfortunately we don't have gauge available for this pattern. The blogger used Red Heart Super Saver 4ply doubled for this pattern, so a gauge for bulky weight yarn might be a good starting point. The needle size is 5.0 mm double pointed needles. I hope that helps!

So practical. must try it.

I made one of these and hung it on the latch to my pie safe. It's the perfect accent in my old fashioned kitchen!

I think they are really cute and sweet esp for a childs play kitchen.

These are the most adorable little knit strawberries I've seen! I would really like to knit the leaves or crochet them and stiffen them instead of the felt, but thats just a personal preference. I will be making dozens of these; so Thank You so much for the pattern! ---MamaMarie

These strawberries are perfect and would be quick and fun to make. 6-26-10. Grandmother

I was at the fair this past weekend and saw a string of knitted Christmas lights and this pattern looks like it would work for them too! Just knit the lights(strawberries) in different colours. crochet a long 'cord' using black and join the lights to it. A great unbreakable, homemade, Christmas decoration.

I love these strawberries. I have a granddaughter who is always looking for more play food. I also have a daughter who has done her kitchen in fruit. She would love these.

these ae so darn cute
