Crochet Cherry on a Stem

I have the perfect crochet cherry pattern for you! These cherries work up very quickly and are beginner friendly. You can use it as a wonderful decor for a handbag or hat, as a cute toy or a keychain.

And a good news! I’m going to make more than just a cherry, but two cherries with stem and leaf attached to each other. It just looks charming and can also be used safely for children’s games.
