2017 GAL: Groot (knit)
Sample square knit by Megan-Anne Llama.
Pattern is available HERE.
Groot was originally a monster in one of the Marvel Monster Comics and then later, when Marvel was trying to figure out what to do with some of their D list characters, he wound up with Rocket Racoon in the Guardians of the Galaxy. As a fun aside, Rocket is actually loosely based on the Beatles song “Rocky Raccoon“.
Crochet version is available at this link.
