I have a love/hate relationship with broccoli. I LOVE to eat it, and fortunately, my husband and my son do too. Give it to me raw with a bit of ranch or hummus, steamed with butter and salt, cooked into a casserole, as a pasta topping, as a salad with a creamy or vinaigrette dressing, grated, stir fried, in soup, in your eggs. The ways to eat it are endless and it makes an appearance once a week on our dinner table in some way, shape or form. So, when Benjamin requested broccoli to be added to his crochet toys, I was surprised that I hadn’t made a stalk for him yet! So finally, here it is… for him and for you…a broccoli free crochet pattern!
Realistic and charming, these crochet broccoli bits will make the perfect, colorful addition to your little one’s toy food collection or do your crochet fruit and veg centerpiece. The pattern includes the method of crocheting the broccoli 3 different ways: the large stalk, large floret with stems and small floret. The printable pattern is available for free in the Resource Library here!
