Easy Crochet Carrot
When I first designed this pattern I knew I was going to make a carrot wreath for my Easter decor. Look at how cute they look secured to that little grape vine wreath! And for those wondering, the cute bunny is from Target.
Crochet Carrot Decor
When I started my wreath project I was originally going to do carrots all the way around, but then I changed my mind. Instead I ended up with a bunch of extra carrots that couldn’t go to waste! So I sprinkled them among other parts of my Easter decor as well. You better believe my kids nabbed a couple to use as play food too!
An Easy Plushie Project
These carrots are one of the easier plushie projects you will make. Just a few rounds of SC stitches, polyfil, and a green tassel is all it takes to assemble these cuties!

Make the carrot top using green yarn
Wrap your green yarn around something about 3” wide (a piece of sturdy cardboard, wood, smartphone, etc).
Wrap the yarn approx. 30 times and make a tassel.
Assemble the crochet carrot
Fill the carrot with polyfil. Using the yarn tail and a yarn needle, weave the tail back and forth between the stitches along the top edge of the carrot.
Place the folded end of the tassel in the top of the carrot, and pull the tail tight so that the top cinches around it. With the tail, sew back and forth through the top of the carrot and tassel to secure it. Tie off yarn and weave in all ends.
