This pattern is available for free.

My takeaway from the movie was that WE ALL NEED A BABY Groot, so here is your free crochet GROOTORIAL! If you haven’t seen the movie, Groot is this tree-like alien who is really big and strong and can grow stuff off his body and is basically like the Giving Tree on steroids.

What You’ll Need

  • H8/5.00mm and F5/3.5mm crochet hooks
  • Worsted weight yarn in Brown (I used Rowan Summer Tweed in Chocolate Fudge, but it’s discontinued now. I believe Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice has a brown tweed, and Plymouth Encore Worsted definitely has a brown tweed, but any brown or tan/wood color will work!)
  • Sport weight yarn in Green (I used Red Heart Designer Sport in Pistachio)
  • Black embroidery thread or Black worsted weight yarn (I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Black) – If you’d rather not crochet tiny leaves, you can also use green felt to cut out leaves, and sew them on with green or brown thread.
  • 2 9mm safey eyes (12mm looks cute, too!)
  • small amount of Polyfil
  • 1 12-inch pipe cleaner or some kind of wire for the arms
  • scissors
  • tapestry needle
  • small plant pot
  • a handful of small, smooth pebbles
  • optional: fake moss, hot glue
