Continuing on with my fruit and veggie amigurumi trend that I’ve got going, I made a cheerful carrot!
I’m enjoying making fruits and veggies at the moment because they’re usually only one piece and I’m finding them easy to complete while also learning the ropes of being a new mom. The best part is that my little one can safely play with them when I’m done.
I got this pattern for FREE from Kristi Tullus’ blog. You can find it here. THANKYOU KRISTI! She kindly included all different sizes to make and a great PDF file to refer to. The pattern was clean looking, easy to follow and included nice photos of the details. I used the small size pattern but it looks so big because I’m using chunky Boston Sun yarn in neon orange and a 4.5mm hook. The bumps and texture of each crochet stitch makes it perfect for a teething baby to chew on.
I sewed on the face with black yarn. You can find great tips on sewing faces from Planet June’s blog here.
I encourage you to check out all the tutorials on both blogs mentioned as I feel they’ve really helped my amigurumi skills.

Next up, some fruit!
