A giant strawberry stuffed toy, I think that says it all.

The pattern includes stranded colorwork, the light green dots could also be added by darning.

The gauge for this project is not critical, as long as a dense fabric is created, I would recommend to use a needle 1/2 to 1 mm smaller then the size recommended on the yarn wrapper.

I used about 25 grams of red yarn and small amounts of light green and dark green yarn (all double knit on needles 3.25 mm)
My strawberry was 20 cm high (including the stem) 15 cm wide with a circumference of 45 cm, at widest part.
