This is a free chocolate-covered strawberry crochet pattern to make small, medium, and large strawberries with removable chocolate shells. This is a great advanced beginner pattern using worsted WeCrochet cotton yarn.
One of my absolute favorite foods, any time of the year, not just Valentine’s Day, are chocolate-covered strawberries. So it was only appropriate to design a crochet version. I noticed that there are a lot of these types of patterns in existence. But there is one type I couldn’t find and prefer. Strawberries that have their chocolate shells removable.
So I designed these to be exactly that. Chocolate shells you can take off like hats from the strawberries. So it’s a 2-in-1 pattern. You can totally use strawberries for the summer without the chocolate shell. But you can also sew the shell to the strawberry.
I love multi-functional patterns, but that was not the only reason I designed this pattern like this. The other more obvious reason is when you bite into a chocolate-covered strawberry the chocolate shell usually falls off. Or maybe that only happens to me? LOL But yes, that is the other reason why you can take the chocolate shell off of the strawberries.
But we all know strawberries come in different shapes and sizes. So this pattern is not only a 2-in-1 pattern but also a 3-in-1. So that makes it a 6-in-1 pattern collection, right? That means you’ll get 3 differently-sized strawberries and also chocolate shells – small, medium, and large. So make them all or just one size. You decide.
And if you are a visual learner, I also added a quick video tutorial for this fun chocolate-covered strawberries crochet pattern to help you along with the written pattern as well.

These Design CALs are super special because members have input on how the pattern turns out. We start the pattern with an idea and every week, for up to 4 weeks, the pattern is extended until it’s done. All through video tutorials, one each week.
There is a new Design CAL each month now. Sometimes we even have several Design CALs each month, depending on how long each pattern takes to finish.
This crochet chocolate-covered strawberry pattern was designed in January 2023 for a Valentine’s Day Wreath in The Crochet Club. This pattern was a lot of fun for me and the members of The Crochet Club to make together!

You’ll first make the strawberries and then the chocolate to cover it. Optionally you can sew the chocolate to the strawberry, but I prefer to have them be separate so I can use the strawberries for summer decor.
