Easter is just around the corner and this mini carrot crochet pattern is such a fun and quick little make. It was one of the patterns that didn’t make the cut for the 12 Days of Crochet Christmas event (while the thought of hanging carrots on the Christmas tree cracks me up, it wasn’t quite the vibe that I was going for).
You can use this little carrot for keychains, magnets, brooches, garlands, as an accessory for other amigurumi or for a play kitchen.

The pattern is written using US terminology and measures approximately 3.25” (8.5cm) long when using the materials listed.
Pieces are worked in a continuous spiral starting with a magic ring unless otherwise specified. Mark the first stitch of each round with a removable stitch marker.
Gauge is not important in this pattern. Use a hook size to match your chosen yarn. Make sure that your stitches are tight enough to prevent stuffing showing through and adjust hook size if necessary.

Cut the yarn leaving a tail and pull through last st. Weave the yarn tail through the front loop only of
the final round and pull to close. Hide the end inside the carrot.
Using a single strand of brown embroidery floss doubled, randomly sew horizontal lines spanning over 2 sts to resemble the lines on a carrot.
