Free Crochet Pattern – Leif Carrot

I’m participating in an Ami-Along. It is $5.00 in order to join and get the pattern. It is the year of the dog for 2018.

Here is my first dog:

I’m working on the girl. I should be finished soon.

I also stepped out of my regular pattern and made this super cute Flareon.  I love using a needle felting tool to attach the wonderful fluff.

I also started attaching labels to my handwoven scarves. scarf label

This scarf is made out of Knit Picks Chroma in Avalon with a purple cotton warp.

I’m also going to a charity function this coming weekend. I decided to donate a gift basket of all Drunken Aunt Wendy has to offer.

Now for your free Pattern. It is a new addition to my vegetable and fruit plush. Don’t forget to make up a Beetsy to have a friend.  Remember, this is not tested. Use #drunkenauntwendy if you post on Instagram. I would love to see your stuff.

Crochet Carrot Pattern

Worsted Weight Yarn
I love this yarn – Orange Neon
I love this yarn – Jelly Bean
I love this yarn – White
I love this yarn – Black
Size 18 mm eyes
Size E crochet hook
Large Eye Needle


SC – Single Crochet
HDC – Half Double Crochet
CH- Chain
FO – Fasten Off
SL ST – Slip Stitch
INC – Make two Single Crochet in Same Stitch
DEC – Single Crochet two stitches together
BLO – Back Loops Only
FLO – Front Loops Only

Note: Almost the entire project is worked in the round. Use a stitch marker or a scrap piece of yarn to mark the beginning of each row. Then you don’t have to count every row. Do not join unless instructed to.

Parentheses indicate a repeat. Repeat the stitches in the parentheses for the number of times indicated.

The bracketed number [] is the number of stitches at the end of each row.

I spread my increases out so there isn’t a seam on the finished piece. If you do not like this method, you can do regular increases.
