This is as a request for those who just wanted the carrot pattern and not the Peter Rabbit pattern from whence they have come.

A perfect stash buster and perhaps a quirky, unique idea for a Christmas tree ornament?

I’ve mentioned that I used Drops Alpaca and Kid-silk - which I did, but to be honest anything goes - any stash stuff. I’ll only add that to get that ‘heritage carrot look’ you do use a yarn (4-ply-DK/ fingering-light-worsted or sport) with a mohair - it’s the whispy mohair that’s key here. I think.

I am not permitted to sell this on here because it’s already part of another pattern - but it is in my Etsy shop - https://www.etsy.com/uk/listing/886718791/knitting-pattern-heritage-carrots
