Important Notes:
-All joins are made with a sl st.

-This pattern uses the Magic Circle, if you do not know how to make a magic circle you can learn with my quick video here: https://youtu.be/64O9WVJucFA

Row 1: Magic circle, ch 1, 6 sc in circle. Join. (6 sc)
Row 2: Ch 1, *2 sc, sc in 2.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (8 sc)

If you haven't already, sew in your beginning end.

Row 3-7: Ch 1, sc in each around. Join. (8 sc)

Stuff carrot before moving on.

Row 8: In BLO: *Sc2tog.* Repeat *to* around. Join. (4 sc)

Fasten off leaving a long end, sew top of carrot shut.

Now using green yarn, cut 3 strands about 4" in length. Use your needle to add each strand to the top of the carrot then knot all three strands together and trim to an inch or so in length.

This pattern was originally written as a topper for a cupcake, they compliment the cupcake well!
