“Mommy, where is the baby?”, said my 3yo son after looking at the finished Sweet Carrot & Cool Carrot together. Well, that’s how this Baby Carrot came about. Baby Carrot is very tiny — knitting him was quick and easy (he is like a miniature version of the other carrots). However, I gave him a different hair for fun, the green tops are cut slightly uneven and braided. I left the green tops long, but I think it will look good too if cut short.

Cut the Orange yarn, and leave approx 10cm tail for seaming at the end. Now, you want to repeat the Cool Carrot green tops procedure. I have written a detailed instructions with video tutorials on how to do the hair in my Cool Carrot post, please refer to it there.

The difference is that you may want to cut your yarns after you finished tying the slip knot so it’s easier to handle as you don’t want to cut it really short and having trouble tying the knots later on. After you finish tying the knots, I braid the hair using 3 strand braid technique, then I later trim the hair to desired length.

So, I did say I will create a friend for my Sweet Carrot and here he is! Ok, so what’s the difference?

Main differences between Cool Carrot & Sweet Carrot knitting patterns:

  1. For the increase, Cool Carrot is knitted with M1 instead of Kfb. Since using slightly smaller needles for the yarn recommendation, I didn’t encounter problem with Kfb creating small holes. But with M1, you still get that slight indented surface and the same effect of carrot lines, but the surface is more smooth overall as Kfb stitches create bumps on the fabric. The patterns are interchangeable so you can pick which ones you like for making the carrot!
  2. What else? Well, Cool Carrot is slightly taller than Sweet Carrot! The increase in height is notable in Round 41 to Round 48. So if you don’t like him tall, simply skip those rounds. Alternatively, you can repeat the increases to make him even taller. ;) (Please refer below for instructions on how to increase the carrot in more details)
  3. And of course, you can’t miss that hair! Cool Carrot has different tops and he gets foil highlight to make him looks trendy!

Cool Carrot doing his hair

You want to tie a slip knot, having both ends on one side and inserting them inside the loop

Cut yarn and leave approx 20cm tail. Now, I prefer to do the face embroidery before I close up the hole. If you don’t like having DPN needles as you are embroidering the face, you can transfer your stitches to stitch holders. I use dark brown thread to match the colour of my Sweet Carrot. When you are done, stuffed the body with fillings of your choice. Do not close the hole yet. Now we will make the carrot greens.

Carrot Greens:
You should have 12 live stitches remaining in your DPN / stitch holders.

    1. Cut 6 light green yarns and 6 dark green yarns at approx 16cm length each. (What we want to do is to insert these green yarns inside the live stitches and secure it by tying a slip knot)
    2. Use tapestry needle and thread a light green yarn into the first loop of your live stitch.
    3. Release the needle from the yarn.

This is what the head looks like with 2 DPN remaining

  1. Then insert the needle back to the light green yarn that’s already inside the loop and thread it back out the same hole, without taking the the yarn you previously inserted off the loop
  2. Release the needle from the yarn once more, then tie a slip knot to secure the yarn. (Do not remove your live stitch from the needles / stitch holders yet)

Grab the dark green yarn next and repeat the above 5 steps. Repeat this process while alternating between the light green and dark green yarn.

When you have finished adding the green yarn to the 12 live stitches, use a tapestry needle and thread the orange yarn through all the loop (now you can remove the stitch from the needles / stitch holders), pull the yarn tight and secure. You can also trim the hair to even things up at the end.

I have also included a video below to help you, hopefully it all make sense!

Free carrot knitting patterns, ribbing effects

Sweet Carrot side view to show ribbing effects

These days I am bursting with surges of inspiration (well I guess it’s a good thing!), only problem is I cannot keep up with it (I can’t seem to knit fast enough before the next idea pops up to my head). But, for now …  Here I present Sweet Carrot, the new family addition of Free Cute Knit. The knitting pattern is purposely done so it has natural ribbing effects throughout the whole carrot body, which creates this texture similar to real life carrot! I really love cute things (I think that’s pretty obvious seeing the website name and all :P ), so I sew embroidery for the face. However, If you like realistic knit, feel free to go without the face embroidery instead.

I use Kfb increases when knitting the carrot, but since I use smaller needles for the recommended yarn, no holes are shown in the finished product :) . I am in the process of knitting and creating a friend for my Sweet Carrot — I just hate to see her alone … I don’t want to reveal too much yet, but let me say that I will be modifying the pattern to use M1 instead of Kfb so you can see the different effects it will produce. Also, getting back to face embroidery, I use dark brown thread for the eyes and mouth instead of black to give it more subtle and sweet look to the carrot.

Last but not least, I include a short video below of how I secured the carrot greens together, hopefully it will help someone when making it.

Happy knitting!
