Crochet Mini Carrot Treat Bags

I saw several crochet carrots on Pinterest, but nothing was quite what I was looking for. So what to do??? I made up my own little pattern! 🥕😊

I used worsted weight yarn and an H/5mm hook to stitch up my carrots. The specific yarns I used are Crafter’s Secret in Orange and I Love This Yarn in Keylime. Both are available from Hobby Lobby. And have you noticed they have been putting all their yarn on sale 30% off about every other week?!?! Every. Single. Skein. How fun is that?!?!

Here’s my take on the carrot treat bag.

Crochet Mini Carrot Treat Bag

Stitches used – (US terms):

  • Chain – ch
  • Single crochet – sc
  • Double crochet – dc
  • Slip stitch – ss

Note: chain 2 does not count as a stitch

Tip: At the beginning of each round, I worked a slip stitch into the next stitch before chaining 2. By doing this, it helps to keep the seam from going wonky and really helps to hide the seam. The first picture is without the slip stitch, the second is with it.

 

Rnd 1: Using Orange, begin with a magic ring. Ch 2, dc 6 times in ring. Join with a ss to first dc. Pull magic ring closed.

Rnd 2: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next stitch. *2 dc in next stitch, 1 dc in next stitch* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (9 stitches)

Rnd 3: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next 2 stitches. *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 2 stitches* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (12 stitches)

Rnd 4: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next 3 stitches. *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 3 stitches* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (15 stitches)

Rnd 5: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next 4 stitches. *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 4 stitches* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (18 stitches)

Rnd 6: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next 5 stitches. *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 5 stitches* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (21 stitches)

Rnd 7: ss into next dc, ch 2. Work 2 dc in same stitch, dc in next 6 stitches. *2 dc in next stitch, dc in next 6 stitches* twice and join with ss to first dc of rnd. (24 stitches) Change to Keylime.

Rnd 8: Using Keylime, ss into next dc, ch 1. Sc in same stitch and each stitch around. Join with ss to first sc of rnd. (24 stitches)

Rnd 9: ss into next sc, ch 1. Sc in same stitch and each stitch around. Join with ss to first sc of rnd. (24 stitches) Do not fasten off.

To make handle:

Row 1: ss into next sc, ch 1. Sc in same stitch and in next sc, (leaving the rest of the round unworked), ch 1. Turn.

Row 2-16: 1 sc in each of the 2 sc, ch 1. Turn.

Fasten off leaving a long tail. Sew the end of the handle to the opposite side of the carrot. Weave in ends.

These cute little carrots are perfect to fill with chocolate and other fun treats. They work up very quickly so you’ll have plenty of time to make as many as you need!

Thanks for stopping by,
