Anyone want a Carrot?

25 posts in this topic

My son got to bring home the "class pet" yesterday - Rascal the Rabbit. It was from a Build-A-Bear Workshop that his teacher did. My husband, who supports my crochet habit - um - business, suggested that I make Rascal a carrot. Well, here's what I came up with:

(In the last photo, Ranleigh's holding his own build-a-bear Spike).

 

I didn't write down exactly what I did and this is NOT a tested pattern - just use your own judgement to see how long/wide you want your carrot.

 

Note: pattern is done in continuous rounds. mark beginning (or last, like I do) stitch.

 

Carrot:

1) Ch 2, 3 sc in 2nd ch (3)

2) sc in each stitch

3) 2sc in each st (6)

4-5) sc in each stitch

6) 2sc in first st, sc in next - repeat around (9)

7-10) sc in each stitch

11) 2 sc in first st, sc in next - repeat around (12)

12-?) continue until you have desired length

STUFF

Decrease - 2sctog, sc in next around until you have around 4 stitches.

Fasten off, leaving long end to sew top closed.

 

Green Stuff :hook :

1) Ch at least 10 stitches (you can make it longer if you want)

2) Ch 2 additional stitches, 3 dc in 3rd ch from hook

3) 3 dc in each ch except last st

4) sl st into last st, fasten off leaving long end to sew to top of carrot

 

Sew green stuff into top of carrot. ENJOY!

:laughroll You are so sweet! (That's not one of his best pictures either!:blush )

You are welcome to introduce him - he's not shy and has a slew of girlfriends. He's talked about chosing between 2 sisters at the bus stop (He's in Kindergarden; they're in 8th and 6th grades!). He's going to make a great dad one day - he and his oldest sister play "family" all the time.

(he's the oldest but has two younger sisters - he calls Claire his older sister not because she's older than him but because she's older than Avery)

 

Here are some photos of all of us:

My dog's favourite treats are carrots and other vegetables and fruits. I've been looking for a crocheted carrot that I could make for him! He loves stuffed animals too. He's very easy to make things for!
