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]

Note:

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!

Adding the Face

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.

See video at (1:04:04) for details on how to add the face.

[All in Green]
Magic loop

[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 cen- ter 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.
