R18: (dc 3, dec) x 6 (24)

Stuff firmly.

We will now work up the first leg:

R19: dc 6 only. Fasten off, weave in loose end by inserting darning needle in the front loop of each of the 6 sts and pull tight to close the hole. First leg made.

We will now work up the next leg.

R19: continue where you fasten off for the first leg and skip the first 6 sts. Attach the yarn in the next st, dc in the same st and in each of the next 5 sts. As with the first leg fasten off and weave in loose end by inserting darning needle in the front loop of each of the 6 sts and pull tight to close the hole.

You will have another 6 unworked sts after the second leg. Now is the time to add more stuffing if needed. Flatten the two sides together and sow the bottom together.

  2. Hi, what does it mean in round 2 of the big leaf? Is it 2 crochet in the first stitch and then a decrease in the next 3 stitches, I was confused as I only had 4 in the first place as far as I knew lol
    Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much for this adorable pattern, I have a quick question though. Round 10 of the small berry says to DC 10, but there are only 4 stitches in that row. Is this a typo?
    Thanks again!
