Materials You’ll Need:

Before you start crocheting, gather the following materials:

  1. Worsted weight yarn in red (for the strawberry), green (for the leaves), and cream (for the base).
  2. Crochet hook (size appropriate for your yarn choice).
  3. Stitch marker.
  4. Yarn needle.
  5. Scissors.

Pattern:

Step 1: Base of the Beanie

Using the cream yarn, start by crocheting a basic beanie in the size you prefer. You can use any beanie pattern of your choice or follow this simple guideline:

  1. Chain an even number of stitches that will fit comfortably around your head. Join the ends with a slip stitch to form a ring.
  2. Crochet in the round using single crochet stitches. Continue until the beanie reaches your desired length. Remember to mark the beginning of each round with a stitch marker.

Step 2: Strawberry Appliqué

Switch to the red yarn to create the strawberry appliqué.

Round 1:
Chain 2 and make 6 single crochet stitches in the second chain from the hook. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet to form a ring.

Round 2:
Chain 1. Make 2 single crochet stitches in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. (12 stitches)

Round 3:
Chain 1. Make 1 single crochet stitch in the next stitch, then 2 single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. (18 stitches)

Round 4:
Chain 1. Make 1 single crochet stitch in the next 2 stitches, then 2 single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. (24 stitches)

Round 5:
Chain 1. Make 1 single crochet stitch in the next 3 stitches, then 2 single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat from * to * around. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. (30 stitches)

Chain 1. Make 1 single crochet stitch in each stitch around. Join with a slip stitch to the first single crochet. (30 stitches)

Fasten off and weave in the ends.

Step 3: Leaves

Switch to the green yarn to create the strawberry leaves.

Round 1:
Chain 6. Slip stitch into the second chain from the hook. Make 1 single crochet stitch in the next chain. Half double crochet in the next chain. Double crochet in the next chain. Double crochet and half double crochet in the last chain.

Round 2:
Turn your work and continue crocheting on the other side of the foundation chain. Double crochet and half double crochet in the first chain. Single crochet in the next chain. Slip stitch in the last chain.

Fasten off and leave a long tail for sewing.

Step 4: Assembly

Position the strawberry appliqué on the front of the beanie. Use the long tail from the leaves to sew the leaves to the top of the strawberry. Also, use the red yarn tail to sew the strawberry onto the beanie securely.

Step 5: Finishing Touches

Weave in any remaining ends and adjust the leaves to your desired shape.

Congratulations! You’ve now crocheted your very own strawberry beanie. Enjoy wearing or gifting this sweet and cozy accessory, and have fun creating more delightful crochet projects in the future!
