The Cottage Garden Tomato is part of an ongoing series of smaller sized veggies and fruits that sprouted up when Patrick and Archie, the Cottage Garden Bunnies, needed some produce growing in their garden patches. Being bunnies they of course started out with growing carrots, but quickly decided that they wanted even more variety in their Cottage Garden Patch!

The Cottage Garden Tomato and the rest of the series can be found for free on the blog, or as inexpensive PDF patterns here on Ravelry. The tomato pattern is available to purchase individually or as part of an ebook for additional savings which also includes the Cottage Garden Cabbage and Carrots!


  • Your PDF purchase includes written instructions and helpful photographs to aid in construction.
  • The pattern is written in English using US crochet terminology.


  • The skill level needed is advanced beginner.
  • The techniques you will need to know are the chain, single crochet, slip stitch, increase, invisible decrease, working in the back loop, and the adjustable ring.

To complete the Cottage Garden Tomato you will need: yarn in your choice of colors (about 16 yds total of worsted/aran), a size E/4 (3.5 mm) crochet hook, stitch markers, tapestry needle, stuffing, scissors, and a chopstick to help stuff. Optionally you will need: pins, embroidery floss, embroidery needle, and 6 mm safety eyes if adding a face.

The finished Tomato measures approximately 2 inches wide, approximately 2 inches tall including the stem, and 5.5 inches in circumference at the widest part.
