During my last CAL, the Spring Farm granny square CAL, I shared the pattern for a very quick and easy carrot applique. Since everyone was very excited about these little carrots, I thought of sharing the pattern for free here on the blog too!
These carrots work up in just one row. As a finishing touch, we’ll add some green leaves by knotting a couple of fringes together. Easy peasy!
For the Spring Farm CAL, I used the carrot applique to make a Carrot Field granny square, using the Simple Circle Granny Square as a base.
However, there are many other themes and occasions in which you can use a crochet carrot applique! For example, you could use a few to embellish your kitchen towels and potholders, or to add to your market bag, Easter makes, and much more!
Save the free pattern of the crochet carrot applique to your best Pinterest board! Or add it to your queue on Ravelry!

- A small amount of Yarn of Choice in Orange and Green
- Appropriate Hook Size
- Tapestry Needle
To have an idea of what size to expect with different yarn sizes and hooks, refer to the table below.
|Yarn Weight||Crochet Hook||Carrot Height|
(without the greens)
|Sport (2, Fine)||2.5 mm (C USA, 12 UK)||1.4″ (3.5 cm)|
|DK (3, Light)||3.0 mm (C USA, 11 UK)||1.5″ (3.9 cm)|
|Aran (4, Medium)||4.5 mm (7 USA, 7 UK)||2.4″ (6 cm)|
This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge. Just keep in mind that the final size of the carrot will depend on the yarn and hook you use.
