Small Crochet Carrot


Small Carrot,
This is a quick project. I designed the carrot for a small bunny. If you would like to make the bunny as well, click here for the pattern. Scroll down this page for the carrot pattern.
Have fun!


Why donating is important and my thank you here.


Supplies:
worsted weight yarn in orange and a small amount in green
4mm hook
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
scissors
polyester stuffing

Abbreviations:
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
2tog = crochet 2 stitches together
f/o = finish off

Magic ring:
Many parts of this amigurumi begin with a magic ring. I have 2 short video tutorials that will show you 2 different methods of making a magic ring. Use the one that is
easiest for you. View 1st method here and 2nd method here.

How to read the rows:
Add a maker at the end of row 2 and move that marker each time you finish a row. Each row has a sequence. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that row. When you land on the marker you should be putting in 2sc. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

If you would like a small basket to put the carrots in, I have a pattern here

Carrot:
1) magic ring with 6sc (6)
2) 2sc in each st (12)
3) 1sc in each st for 1 row
4) 1sc in next 4st then 2tog (10)
5-6) 1sc in each st for 2 rows
7) 1sc in next 3st then 2tog (8)
8-9) 1sc in each st for 2 rows
f/o leaving a tail for sewing. Weave in and out of the remaining stitches then stuff the carrot. Use the back end of a pencil or a stuffing stick. Pull yarn tail to close the gap and knot off.
Pull on this end of the carrot again to stretch it out, shape the tip by knotting another time if you need to. Gently carry the yarn through the tip and out anywhere on the side of the carrot and cut free.

Carrot Top: with green
pull the yarn through the center hole of row 1 of the carrot and wrap around the ring of row 1 many times. Knot off and cut to about an inch or longer. Tie in a couple more strands and also cut those the same length. Twist then fray the strands.

  1. Hello! Thanks to you I made my very first amigurumi ever, and I'm so happy about it!
    But as I finished the carrot I figured out I made a sl st at the end of each row. Was it not necessary? Do you mention slip stitches everytime they are needed?
    Thanks a lot!
