Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Crocheting in rounds.
  • Chain stitch.
  • Single crochet stitch.
  • Increasing and decreasing.

Pattern Description:

Pattern is written in English, using US crochet terminology. I included detailed instructions, many step-by-step photos and useful tips and tricks.

In this tutorial I will explain starting a piece with an adjustable loop (magic ring), finishing a piece, joining pieces, knotting and hiding yarn tails.

Gauge:

You can use the same pattern to make smaller or larger toys by using finer or bulkier yarns. Make sure to pick a crochet hook at least a size smaller than suggested on the yarn label and crochet tightly enough to achieve a tight gauge that will not allow the stuffing to show through the fabric

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Four sizes, about 8,5 - 20 cm (3 1/3 - 8"), with fingering weight cotton yarn and a 1,75 mm crochet hook.

Materials:

  • Yarn. I used fingering weight cotton yarn, 125 m = 50 g (137 yd = 50 g) / 1: super fine / 4 ply / 14 wpi. You will need about 10 - 25g of orange and 6 - 12g of green yarn for each carrot.
  • 1,75 - 2,25 mm crochet hook (US thread hook size 5 - 1).
  • Polyester fiberfill, wool, wadding etc. for stuffing.
  • Cotton embroidery floss.
  • Yarn needle, scissors, stitch marker.

Preferred Brand/Yarn:
