To add a drippy border between the color changes of your chocolate covered strawberry, try using this extra round before changing colors.

Rnd 16B: working in the FLO, [sc 1, hdc 1, dc 2, hdc 1, sc 1] 8 times (48)
Slst 1, cut the yarn, pull through and hide the end.

Create a slip knot in Red and pull through the first unused BLO from Rnd 16. Ch 1 and work Rnd 17 (all sc stitches) into the BLO stitches from Rnd 16 starting in the same stitch you pulled through to start.

See video at (48:09) for detailed instructions.

[Change to Red if you are making a chocolate covered strawberry]

Try using the Perfect Stripe Method to get a clean color change for a chocolate covered strawberry and don’t want to try the drippy border!

Rnds 17-20: sc in each st (48 x 4)

Add the eyes around Rnds 13 – 14 and about 7 – 9 stitches apart (depending on preference). Try embroidering on eyelashes just under the eyes before locking in.

Embroider a mouth between the eyes and slightly lower, and cheeks in Pink just under the eyes.

Rnd 21: [sc 6, invdec 1] 6 times (42)

Rnd 22: [sc 5, invdec 1] 6 times (36)

Rnd 27: invdec in each (6)

Stuff fully and sew closed.

Embroider on seeds using Yellow yarn on any areas in Red around 8 st apart and stagger them on every other round.

[All in Green]
Magic loop

Rnd 1: sc 6 in the magic loop (6)

Rnds 2-4: sc in each st (6 x 3)

Rnd 5: working in the FLO, inc in each st (12)

Rnd 6: [sc 1, inc 1] 6 times (18)

Rnd 7: [sc 2, inc 1] 6 times (24)

{} = worked in the same stitch

p = Picot (ch 3, slst in BLO of the 1st ch made)

Rnd 8: [skip 1 st, {dc 2, p, dc 2}, skip 1 st, slst 1] 6 times (6 leaves)

Slst 1, cut the yarn and pull through leaving a long enough end to sew onto the strawberry.

Sew this onto the top of the strawberry by using the first tail end to go through the very center of the top and out an adjacent stitch on the side. Then use the other tail end to sew on the corners between leaves to their adjacent stitch. Exit out of the same place as the previous tail end, double knot together, cut close and stuff into the body.
