carrot

20180603_crochet_carrot (5)

you will need a very small amount of orange yarn and a few scraps of green yarn. You should use a hook one or two sizes smaller than that recommended for your orange yarn, this will make the stitches dense and compact.

The pattern is written in American terms but only slip stitches and single crochet stitches are used throughout. If you prefer English terms then just swap all the sc for dc and you’re good to go.

insert the hook into the loops on the right side of the piece (outside of the loop) only throughout.

optionally stuff the cut off ends into the top of the carrot to fill it out a little.

cut 3 lengths of green yarn ~4x longer than the carrot

fold the green yarn in half and then half again as shown in the photo above. Insert hook through both layers of orange at the top of the carrot, toward one side, and pull through a loop of one of the green folded strands. pull the loose ends through and tighten

repeat twice more with the other green strands, spacing evenly across the top of the carrot and then trim to a length you like

I added a pin to the back of mine to turn it into a brooch
