Carrots have always been one of my very favorite vegetables. I remember as a small girl, pulling them up out of our garden with my dad, rinsing them in the hose and eating them fresh within minutes of pulling them from the warm earth – long dangly root and all. When it comes to eating vegetables it just doesn’t get much better than that. These days, I absolutely love cooking with rainbow carrots in-particular. Their vibrant and interesting color adds such a special touch to the dinner plate. So in honor of these beautiful market vegetables, here is a rainbow carrot free crochet pattern for you!
Realistic and adorable, these crochet rainbow carrots will make the perfect, vibrant addition to your little one’s toy food collection or to your crochet fruit and veg centerpiece. The pattern includes the method for crocheting the carrots in 2 different sizes. So, if you want to make an entire interactive bunch of carrots, the different sizes will make it more interesting.
If you’re ready to go, you can find the printable pattern available for free in the Resource Library here!
