So, how many of you are Guardians of the Galaxy fans? Ready for the new movie to come out? I know I am! One of my FAVORITE characters in the movie was Groot. How can you not fall in love with Groot? He’s sooooo adorable. A good friend of mine, Lindzee, was a bit obsessed with Groot. I decided to crochet her a baby Groot, complete with the little pot he lives in. I found a fabulous free Groot crochet pattern HERE.
Brown I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby
Light green yarn I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby
5 mm and 3.75 (or 4)mm crochet hook
Small amount of stuffing
Two pipe cleaners
Scraps of black yarn
2 small black buttons for eyes
Small ceramic/clay pot
Glass stones to fill the bottom of the pot
Fake moss/grass to cover the stones
Using I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby in brown, I got to work. The pattern is pretty easy to understand. It didn't take long to finish the body, head, and arms. I attached his eyes, stitched on a smile and put him in his little clay pot. I put some glass beads in the bottom to hold him in place and covered them with some fake green grass/moss that I found at Hobby Lobby. Isn’t he so cute!? Can't wait to go see the movie!
