With Easter around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make a little crochet carrot pouch that you could fill with a special treat! This would also make a cute prop accessory for those of you who are making my crochet bunny hat and diaper cover set 🙂
– Worsted weight yarn in orange and green (I used Loops & Threads Impeccable for the orange part and Vanna’s Choice in Fern for the green. www.LionBrand.com)
– Size J Hook
– Tapestry Needle
Magic Ring – Tutorial HERE
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC = Single Crochet
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet
Ch = Chain
SC decrease = Single Crochet Decrease
Crochet Carrot Pouch Pattern:
Magic ring, chain 1 in ring, 4 SC in magic ring
You will work in continues rounds (do not join each round). Use a stitch marker if needed.
Round 2: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around (6 SC)
Round 3: SC in each stitch around (6 SC)
Round 4: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2, repeat around (8 SC)
Round 5: SC in each stitch around (8 SC)
Round 6: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next, repeat around (12 SC)
Round 7: SC in each stitch around (12 SC)
Round 8: 2 SC in first stitch, SC in next 2, repeat around (16 SC)
Round 9-19: SC in each stitch around (16 SC)
Round 20: SC decrease, SC in next 6, repeat around
Round 21: SC in each stitch around (14 SC)
Change color to green
Round 22: SC in each stitch around around, join to first SC, chain 2 (14 SC)
Round 23: DC in each stitch around, join to first DC, chain 1 (14 DC)
Round 24-25: SC in each stitch around, join, chain 2 (14 SC)
Round 26: DC in first stitch, HDC in next, SC in next, Sl St in next, SC in next, HDC in next, repeat around. (At the end you will SC at the bottom of the chain 2 and fasten off since you won’t be able to make the last slip stitch).
Fill carrot with a treat. I used orange jelly beans but you could put in goldfish, gummy bears or anything you’d like! I recommend packaging food items in a plastic bag first.
Thread green ribbon or a couple strands of yarn between the DC stitches in round 23. Tie tightly in a bow!
