Crocheted Carrot

Categories: Crochet, Spring

This little crocheted carrot is the perfect addition to your Easter decor, or a fun filler in an Easter basket. It is a quick project that only takes a little yarn so it is a great way to use up any scraps of orange and green yarn you may have. A little bundle of three would look really cute tied together, or a little basketful of carrots. My kids think it is the perfect size to play with their stuffed animals and dolls. It is a great, quick project for spring.
