Carrot

I think this is the only vegetable in the bunch! I have plans for more in the future but I need a break from crocheting like a fiend, so this may be the only one to make it into the birthday box.

My cat refused to not be in the picture. That’s part of her.

Materials:

  • I used worsted weight orange and sport weight in medium green.
  • G-sized crochet hook. It’s not the size that’s important so I’m not including a gauge. I crochet pretty tightly, if your stitches are looser you may want to use a smaller hook. The important thing is to make sure that the stitches are tight enough to hold in the stuffing.
  • I used polyfiber stuffing, but any stuffing will do.
  • Scissors to cut the yarn.
  • A needle with an eye big enough for yarn.
  • Safety pin, optional.

This is worked in continuous rounds. Use a stitch marker to keep your place and move it up as you complete rows. I use a safety pin and just put it through the last stitch of a round.
