Amigurumi Crochet Free Patterns

Easter Egg Carrots

Easter is quickly approaching and now that I have registered for a Spring Artisan Market I am in full production mode to create fun Easter-related creations.

I knew one of the first patterns I would be using is the Little Egg Monster from1DogWoof. Last year I created the super cute monster version, but I decided to modify the pattern and create a carrot. Can’t you just picture this super cute “egg-carrot” in your Littles’ Easter Basket?!

I am a very tight crocheter, so I had to modify the original pattern for both the monster version and my carrot version.

For a quick refresher on the terms and abbreviations I use, check out this handy list.

My Modifications/Carrot Version

As indicated in the pattern, I used a 3.75mm hook.
I used worsted weight yarns… I dug into my scrap pile for this quick project, so I am unsure of the exact brand/colourway.
On both the egg bottom and egg top, I had to add an extra round of single crochet to fit perfectly around my egg. Be sure to test your eggs and crochet to see if you need to add or remove a round.

Egg Bottom (as indicated on original pattern):
Round 9: Work 1 SC into each stitch (24)

Egg Top (as indicated on original pattern):
Round 10: Work 1 SC into each stitch (24)

Carrot Leaves:
Row 1: Chain 8, SL ST in second chain from the hook and in all remaining chain stitches (7)
Row 2: Chain 6, SL ST in second chain from the hook and in all remaining chain stitches (5)
NOTE: to finish this row, SL ST in the last chain from Row 1. This is going to make our leafy top work in a circular motion. (1)
Row 3: Chain 7, SL ST in second chain from the hook and in all remaining chain stitches. SL ST in last chain from row 1 (6 + join stitch)
Row 4: Chain 8, SL ST in second chain from the hook and in all remaining chain stitches. SL ST in last chain from row 1 (7 + join stitch)
Row 5: Chain 6, SL ST in second chain from the hook and in all remaining chain stitches. SL ST in last chain from row 1 (5 + join stitch)
Leave a long tail for sewing.

Bunch the leaves together and stitch/sew around to create a “tuft” that will stand up. Thread the tails into the top/center of the Egg Bottom. A dot of glue will secure this in place.

Note: To make the carrot, I have flipped the top and bottom pieces, so while it is listed on the original pattern as “Egg Bottom” it is actually the top of the carrot.
