Hello! I hope everybody had a great weekend. I know I did! Today I’d like to share a pattern with you for a crochet carrot which I created myself. Sorry the picture is a bit small! If you open file (which is the same as the pattern typed here, but maybe easier to print off because it is a word document) then you can see a bigger, better picture of the carrot. I hope you enjoy this pattern, and feel free to comment if you think you might make it, or if you do make it and want to share with me what you made! Happy Monday!

Materials needed:

Orange acrylic yarn

Green acrylic yarn (I used Red Heart Super Saver for both colors)

Small amout of black yarn or embroidery thread

6mm saftey eyes (2)

Size G/6 crochet hook

Yarn needle

Stitch marker

This carrot is worked in a spiral from the bottom up. Don’t join the rounds, just use the stitch marker to mark your place as you work. The carrot is about 6 inches from tip to the top of the leaves when finished.

carrot:

round 1: chain 2, sc 6 in 1st chain

round 2: 1 sc in each st

round 3: sc in first 5 sts, increase in last st

4: 1sc in each st

5: sc in first two sts, increase in next st, repeat around

6-7: 1sc in each st

8: sc in first 3 sts, increase in next st, repeat around

9: 1sc in each st

10: sc in first 4 sts, increase in next st, repeat around

11: 1sc in each st

12: sc in first 5 sts, increase in next st, repeat around

13: 1sc in each st

14: sc in first 6 sts, increase in next st, repeat around

15: 1sc in each st

16: sc in first 5 sts, decrease (sc2tog), repeat around

17: sc in first 4 sts, decrease, repeat around

18-19: sc in first 3 sts, decrease, repeat around

At this point you will want to attach the eyes, stitch in the smile, and stuff firmly.

Round 20: sc in first 2 sts, decrease, repeat around

21: sc2tog around, break yarn and close up top of carrot. Weave away ends.

Leaves (make two): When making leaves, on first row, crochet only in half of the “v” (in the back stitch) and on the way back around you will crochet in the other side of the “v.”
