Worsted (9 wpi) ?
4.0 mm (G)
This pattern is available from for C$4.00.

Baby Groot is a great gift for the comic book fan in your life. I wanted to make a cuddly crochet Baby Groot - no wire or hard pot, just a nice soft little Groot that you could give to a child or cuddle without worrying about him poking you in the eye. So I have it a go and ended up with this little guy!

Baby Groot is easy to make, and lots of fun. Difficulty of the pattern is beginner to intermediate. The PDF pattern includes 14 pages with pictures and detailed instructions. If you have any questions or anything is unclear, please email me and I’m happy to help. I’d also just love to hear if you download my pattern and make a Groot! :)
