Root Veggies

Crocheted food is so much fun, and all the more so when you add little embroidered faces.  I made up some carrots with embroidered smiles and button eyes for the babies of two of my friends.  Then today I did a turnip, by request.  I made up the pattern as I went along, using Knitpicks dk-weight Palette in a variety of purples ranging from light to dark, white for the body, and grey for the face.  The eyes are little french knots.

My next project is to be a bigger carrot, more huggable.  I'll probably use Vanna's Choice, as I have so much of it in my stash.  I happen to have just the right orange, and green for the carrot tops.


  1. Eeeeeeeee I love them :D especially the turnip :D

  2. As a meatatarian those kind of scare me.

  3. I am madly in love with these veggies. SO CUTE! If you don't sell these on Etsy you should! (What great baby gifts!)
