Does anyone know of any patterns for crocheted vegetables (the 3-D stuffed kind).  I saw some links for knitted ones elsewhere on this site....but no crocheted ones.

My boss is crazy for vegetables for decorating in her kitchen........I thought a "veggie basket" would be a good gift for christmas.

Kinda goofy, but what do you do when the boss likes veggies?

Thanks to anyone who has time to reply  Kiss

Here's a carrot....

I tried it in wool and felted it...the thread is here if ya want to check it out

Ive been trying to modify the pattern to make a strawberry but it keeps ending up looking like a red carrot.
Anyone know of any strawberry patterns too?

My brother wants me to crochet a whole basket of veggies!!  (which floored me, but hey...there is just something about a basket full of crocheted veggies I guess)
You are not alone he he he

Well, I was feeling extra nice and decided to make up a strawberry pattern for you all. It's a little rough (I'm considering shortening the faux picots into something like ch3 picot, ch5 picot... and specify how to do them at the beginning. Not sure though.)



Strawberry, worked in DK weight yarn (slightly thinner than worsted weight) both parts using an F/5 (3.75mm) hook.
green husk part
ch3, sl st into first ch to form loop
rnd 1. ch1, 7 sc into loop
Each parenthesis section is per base stitch.(sc, ch 5, sc in same st), (sc, ch3, sc ), in next stitch(sc, ch5, sc), in next stitch (sc, ch3,sc), in next stitch(sc, ch5,sc), in next stitch(sc ch3, sc), in next stitch(sc, ch5,sc),  in next stitch(sc, ch3, sc).
Fasten off.

Strawberry body, in red.
ch3, sl st into first ch to form, loop
rnd 1: (mark rounds, rounds done as spirals) ch1, 8 sc into loop
rnd 2: [sc, 2sc] 4 times total
rnd3: [sc, 2sc, 2sc] 4 times total
rnds 4 & 5: sc rnd
Attach green part to top of strawberry at this stage.
rnd 6: (4sc, skp st) 3 times, 5sc
Add some toy stuffing
rnd 7: (3sc, skp st) 3 times, 5sc
rnd 8: sc rnd
rnd 9: (3sc, skp st) 3 times, 2sc
Add more stuffing.
rnd 10: (2sc, skp st) 3 times, 2sc
rnd 11: (sc, skp st) 4 times, sc
fasten off

Feel free to sew on a few random yellow seeds with some yarn.

Do. Or do not. There is no try.

Oh, that's too cute.  And, if you really must have vegetables instead of a strawberry (fruit), it could be passed off as a radish.  Frankly, I prefer strawberries, but that's just me.

Oh this beautiful site!  Will this display of talent ever end?  NEVER!

And I think the strawberry looks fine, Caradea.  It's makin' me hungry for strawberry shortcake *drool*.

Actually I was going to bother doing a proper radish. Here's a real vegetable I just came up with: Turnip.
Darn you all, I'm inspired to make my own fruit & veg basket then give it to my mother-in-law as a tacky gift she has to display  Grin



Turnip, example worked in purple worsted weight yarn, cream and green DK yarns.

Warning, I've not completely bothered to describe the yarn colour switching in the pattern. It's somewhat random in any case and that's what helps the effect, I feel.

Hook: F/5 (3.75mm)

with purple: ch 3, sl st into ch-1 to form loop
rnd 1: ch1, s7 sc
rnd 2: 2sc in each st round
rnd 3: 1sc, 2sc in stitch rnd
rnd 4: 2 sc, 2sc in stitch rnd, ending with 2sc in last st
rnd 5: 1 sc, 2scin stich
rnd 6: sc rnd
rnd 7: sc rnd
rnd 8: 5 sc, inc, rnd, 1sc in last stitch
rnd 9: sc rnd
rnd 10: Start changing colour to white/cream radually from this point: 5sc, decrease
rnd 11: sc rnd
rnd 12: sc rnd
fasten off purple completely by this point
rnd 13: sc rnd
rnd 14: sc rnd
rnd 15: 4sc, decrease
rnd 16: 1sc, decrease
rnd 17: 1sc, decrease
rnd 18: sc rnd
rnd 19: sc rnd
rnd 20: 1sc, decrease
fasten off and leave a tail to mimic the root tail.

with green, ch3, sl st in ch-1
rnd 1: ch1, sc, ch5, sc, ch7, sc, ch5, sc, ch7, sc
fasten off

working into the opposite side of the chains, (sl st, ch 5 slt st), sc in next stitch, (slt st, ch 3, slt st), in next stitch, sc across to end, fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing later.

with red...
ch3, sl st in ch-1 to form loop
rnd 1: ch1, 8 sc
rnd 2: 2sc in each st around
rnd 2: sc rnd
rnd 3: 2sc, increase, round. end with 1sc
rnd 4: sc rnd
rnd 5: sc rnd
rnd 6: 2sc decrease rnd, end with 1sc in last st

Thank you to all who replied about the stuffed veggies...........ESPECIALLY Caradea!!!  I am one of those non artistic types that would have cried and screamed for days trying to create my own veggie patterns.  I MUST have a pattern to follow or I am lost.  I can now crochet a basket of veggies for my employer so that she can fulfill her vegetable decorated kitchen fetish.

Thanks to all.
