Today’s pattern will be crochet cherries used as accessories. You’ll notice that I used it to decorate my gifts. The good thing about it that it can be reused as accessories for your bag keys. It’s very easy to make. You’ll need two colors, one for the cherries and the other for the leaves. For small results use thin yarn\thread.
Skill level: Easy
Thin cotton yarn/thread two colors red and green
Crochet hook with suitable size for your yarn or thread
Needle for sewing and weaving in ends
Keychain or metallic ring (optional)
MR – Magic ring
st – stitch
sl st – slip stitch
ch – chain
sc – single crochet
hdc – half double crochet
dc – double crochet
sc2tog – 2 single crochet together
We’ll be making the cherries, branches and leaf separately then sewing them together in the final step.
Make sure there are no gaps between your cherries stitches so the stuffing well not show through. Use smaller hook if that happened.
Cherries: Make two.

Rnd 2: 2 sc each st. (12 sc)
Rnd 3: *2 sc next st, sc next st* repeat 6 times. (18 sc)
