I wanted to make some cat toys and ended up with some veggies.

I think I may just keep the carrot for myself. I like it too much to let it be torn up.
 


I also made a pumpkin. They are both stuffed with plastic grocery bags.



See below for quick tutorial.

I used two circular needles and cast on 20 stitches.

Knit around, occasionally k2tog until you get down to 1 stitch. You can make your carrot as long as you like. Cut the yarn and pull it through the last stitch. Pull the yarn up into the carrot "sleeve."

I stuffed the carrot with strips of plastic grocery bags, but you can really use anything.

Cut a piece of yarn and use a large sewing needle to weave in and out of the stitches at the opening at the top. Pull the yarn like a draw string and tie off.

The "leaves" of the carrot are just a simple tassel. The site below has some good instructions that can be modified to fit your carrot:

Attach you tassel to you carrot and ta da! Beta carotene!
