Crochet Sprout Pattern

| | |

Time for the next installment of our free crochet patterns by Craft Alotl. Today we have our little Crochet Sprout Project! This is part of a super cute TRIO of the crochet pig, crochet sprout and crochet rabbit!

Crochet Sprout Pattern

It took us a while to figure out what to call this mythical plant inspired little crochet friend. Is it a sprout? A sproutlet? Is it a little White Raddish, or Daikon in Japanese? Or is it Bud or Buddy? I asked my Facebook readers.. and they had a fabulous set of names. From Twiglet to Lily (as per the Lily of the Valley) to Edelweiss to Vincent van Grow to Seed and Seedling… But overwhelmingly you chose Sprout with a crochet Sproutling if made in small..

So whatever youw ant to call this little guy – Daikon, White Raddish, Sprout, Sproutlet, Sproutling or even Pikmin Crochet – let’s make one together today!

Pig and friends

Here is the rest of the trio – Piglet, Sproutlet and Rabbit. You can get ALL THREE as ONE resource as a printable pattern in Craft Alotl’s Ravelry store (super cheap! But she makes a happy dance with every purchase!):
