Pattern instructions

NOTE: This pattern is written in British English. All measurements in charts are in cm. For conversion from cm to inches - click here. There are different terms for crocheting in British and American English. If this pattern includes crochet, click for "crochet terms" here. For this pattern in American English, please click here.
MAGIC CIRCLE:
When piece is worked in the round, start with this technique to avoid holes in the middle (instead of ch-ring): Hold the yarn end and wind the yarn one time around the index finger to make a loop. Hold the loop with left thumb and middle finger, place the thread over left index finger. Insert hook through the loop, make a YO and pull thread through loop, work 1 ch, then work dc around the loop. When the desired no of dc have been reached, pull the yarn end to tighten the loop. Fasten the yarn end at the back. Continue to work in the round in a circle.

WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE:
After last dc on the round, continue to next round with 1 dc in next dc (= first dc from previous round). NOTE: Insert a marker at the beg of round between last dc and first dc on the round, move the marker upwards when working.

INCREASE TIP:
Inc 1 dc by working 2 dc in next dc.

DECREASE TIP:
Dec 1 dc by working 2 dc tog as follows: * Insert hook in next dc, get thread *, repeat from *-* one more time, make a YO and pull thread through all 3 sts on hook.
--------------------------------------------------------

STRAWBERRY:
Worked in the round in a circle. Start by making a MAGIC CIRCLE - read explanation above - at the bottom of strawberry with shocking pink on hook size 4.5 mm.
ROUND 1: Work 4 dc in the magic circle - READ WORK IN THE ROUND IN A CIRCLE.
ROUND 2: Inc 1 dc in every dc = 8 dc.
ROUND 3: * 1 dc in next dc, inc 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 dc.
ROUND 4: * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, inc 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 16 dc.
ROUND 5: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 6: * 1 dc in each of the next 3 dc, inc 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 20 dc.
ROUND 7: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 8: * 1 dc in each of the next 4 dc, inc 1 dc in next dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 24 dc.
ROUND 9 and 10: Work 1 dc in every dc.
ROUND 11: * 1 dc in each of the next 2 dc, dec 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 18 dc. ROUND 12: * 1 dc in next dc, dec 1 dc *, repeat from *-* the entire round = 12 dc.
ROUND 13: Work all dc tog 2 by 2 = 6 dc, cut the thread. Fill the strawberry with some cotton wool, sew the last 6 dc tog with thread end.

LEAF:
Worked in the round. Work 48 ch with pistachio on hook size 4.5 mm and form a ring with 1 sl st in 1st ch.
ROUND 1: Work 1 dc in first ch, * skip 5 ch, 1 dc in next ch *, repeat from *-* the entire round and finish by skipping the last 5 ch and 1 sl st in 1st dc = 8 dc and 8 ch-loops.
ROUND 2: Work 1 ch, 1 dc in every dc, finish with 1 sl st in first dc.
ROUND 3: Work 1 ch, work all dc tog 2 by 2 = 4 dc. Then work 1 dc in every dc, cut and fasten the thread. Sew leaves at the top of strawberry. Sew some stitches with strong yellow on the strawberry.

Please clarify the instructions for the strawberry leaf pattern 23-59. It is unclear to me exactly what the leaf should look like. Thank you.

Dear Susan, leaf is worked in the round from outwards towards innwards, start with a ch-row with 48 ch, join in the round. Work then 1 row with 5-ch spaces (8 ch-spaces), work then 1 sc in each sc from previous row (= 8 sc), then on last round crochet all sc tog 2 by 2 (= 4 sc), work 1 more row with sc (= 4 sc) and sew at the top of the strawberry. Happy crocheting!

Merci pour ces modèles tout simples à faire ! Et très jolis. La fraise mériterai d'être un tout petit peu plus petite pour être parfaite !

In der Anleitung für die Erdbeere ist ein Fehler in Runde 8: es müsste "1 fM in die nächsten 4 fM" heißen

Das stimmt, vielen Dank für den Hinweis!
