I've been doing Thing-a-day and if you've seen it then you know these cherries were my first post. And I promised a pattern when I got them into a vague garland assemblage. Well it's here! Okay so it isn't the most exciting thing ever, but it's cute, quick, easy and free.
Foundation: Ch 2 SC 6 in second Ch from hook
Row 1. *2SC in each* across
Row 2. *SC 1 2SC in next* across
Row 3-4. SC across
Row 5. *SC 1 2SCtog* across
Row 6. *2SCtog* across
Do not finish
Join green and 2SCtog across, this should leave you with 3 stitches. SC in around for 4-7 rows depending on how long you want it. I use the flat side of my hook and come up from under the loop, it's easier when working with such short rows.
Finish off one cherry and make the stem of the second, join it to the first with SC around both (you should have 6 stitches at the end of this step.
Join with SS to first stitch of next row, Ch 7 SC in second Ch from hook HDC DC 3 SC join with SS to stem.
To make cherries of differing sizes I used different hooks F and H.
2SC - Two single crochet in same stitch
2SCtog- Decrease over two stitches /SC two stitches together
HDC - Half double crochet
DC - Double crochet
SS - Slip stitch
Ch - Chain
