DIY: A cherry

EN

The humble cherry! Which is an easy DIY for stormy and rainy day like today. Get yourself a nice pot of tea and knit yourself these delicious looking cherries c:
NL

Deze dikke kersen zijn leuke en makkelijke doe-jezelf projectjes voor regen- en stormachtige dag zoals vandaag. Met een pot thee natuurlijk c:

You need: burgundy and (dark) brown colored yarn, hooks (I've used 2.0mm), scissors and a needle
I'm actually using leftovers yarn as filling....

After you've yarn the tail through the the chain of the stem, yarn through the cherry again (step 1) again. Basically you repeat it until you think it's secured enough. Yarn the leftover tail into the stuffing of the cherry. 



Da Steps:
