The Crochet Carrot Photo Prop is perfect for spring and easter photos or as a fun oversized garden stuffed toy. This is an easy free crochet pattern that works up quick. This carrot will also make a great Easter decoration along with the Easter Egg Plushie.
You can definitely make this carrot smaller by using a thinner yarn and smaller hook, but I just love how quick the Bernat Blanket yarn works up. I made this pattern last year and I am not sure exactly how much yarn it uses, but this crochet carrot does not use very much.
To make this crochet carrot we will be using amigurumi techniques and working in the round. The carrot is worked as one piece and stuffed before working the last few rounds.
This pattern is available for free on my website, but if you prefer to work from a printed copy, I have taken the time to make an ad-free printable version of this pattern for your convenience. It can be purchased on Ravelry.
This crochet carrot makes a great photo prop, but my children also like to use it to ‘feed’ to their other stuffed animals. It can be made with smaller yarn and used as fake food in make-believe play or to stock a crocheted garden.
