This was my first crochet pattern in my farmers market collection! I am so excited to finally share it with you, and just in time for the spring season. All your bouncy bunny babies will love this plush carrot, and it works great in those Easter themed photos. I love any opportunity to encourage children to love their vegetables, and playtime is a good time to start!
