How did it become April already? I meant to have these earrings ready sooner but it felt like I lost about a week of March and boom, now we’re into April. Luckily, if you’re like me you’ll totally wear these any time of year. Who doesn’t love to represent one of the most versatile veggies out there? Well if you do want that orange love, say hello to this week’s new Stuffed Carrots Crochet Earrings pattern.
Now, if you’re wondering are these earrings inspired by my Stuffed Mushrooms Earrings… yes, yes they are. Those are some of my most favorite earrings I’ve ever made and I wear them all the time. I knew that when I decided to make carrot earrings I needed to make them as wonderfully squishy as those mushies. Luckily, that’s a really easy job to do with carrots.
These earring are worked in a really simple carrot, where you make 2 pieces of an arrow looking piece, then you seam them together (don’t forget to stuff it) with a simple sc border. To finish off the carrot look, you then add a couple rows of a stem and some ch sections to give it all that movement that green carrot tops have. I debated adding some high lights, going cross wise on the body of the carrot, to give it dimension but I ultimately decided to keep it simple. But if you decide to add those I’d love to see it.
I have already been wearing my finished carrots and I just love them. But you know what I was thinking? You could easily turn this into an amigurumi design by working it up with a 4.00 mm hook and a couple colors of worsted weight yarn. It’d be so fast and probably make a great teacher gift, don’t you think? I bet my niece would love that kind of gift now that I think if it. Maybe I’ll make one for her one of these days.
Anyway, I hope you like this new pattern and try them out. After all, carrots aren’t only for Easter season.
And be kind to yourself, others, and the world. Wear and wash your masks.
