A step by step carrot knitting pattern suitable for knitting beginners
Easter is in a couple of weeks. This year, everything will be different. As children, we used to search for easter eggs in the garden, but after the lockdown things look rather bleak in that regard. But maybe that’s all the more reason to pay extra attention to decorating your house.
I wanted to create something special for this holiday but at the same time wanted it to be timeless, so you don’t feel silly still not having cleaned things up a week after Good Friday. That’s how I came up with this little carrot pattern. It’s really easy to knit and only requires you to know the very knitting basics.Buy & download the pattern here
It’s a very small project, so you can easily use any left-over yarns. The best part, it takes less than an hour to finish each carrot. So, why not knit a couple of them to get a fill farmer market basket with them.
I posted this picture on my private Facebook page and so many asked me for the pattern. As I do have some spare time (let’s all hope this is over soon), I created a very detailed step-by-step pattern for this and uploaded it to Ravelry.
Do you want to try my pattern? Make sure to upload your finished works to Ravelry or tag me on social media. I would love to see how your carrots turned out!
What you need:
- A green and a red-orange sheep wool yarn in fingering weight
- Needles in US size 2.5 / 3mm
- scissors, tapestry needle, and a crochet needle
- understanding of the following stitches: knit, purl, k2tog, KLL, the standard longtail cast on
- The mattress stitch
The pattern I created is very detailed. Even if you are a beginner, you will find it very easy to follow. There is literally an instruction for every single stitch and lots of pictures to go along with it.Get the pattern on Ravelry
Anyways, that’s all from me for now. And happy knitting!
PS: Make sure to pin this article to your Pinterest board if you want to knit it later.

In your pattern for row 6 and 10, it says to knit KKL which I have no idea what that could be even after googling, so currently, I’m just assuming it’s a typo and should say KLL like all the others.
it is a typo. Thank you for catching that!
There is another portion that I am confused about and I’m not sure if it’s just because it’s my first time knitting stacked increases or if it’s missing a portion for the knitted leaves in Round 59 it just says “k2 [5 times, k5]” I am assuming it’s missing a “KYOKSB2”
You are absolutely right. thank you for catching that.
