Free Crochet Pattern: Potted Baby Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy

GrootDancing(You have to watch this .gif while listening to Awesome Mix Vol.1) I saw Guardians of the Galaxy last weekend because Manda and our friend Ehren both wanted to see it.  A lot of my friends have been over the moon about it, but I’m really not a comic book person, and the trailer wasn’t really catching my attention. I said I would see it if someone bought my ticket :P.

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.

GrootDance8smI don’t want to spoil why there is a baby Groot and why people are going crazy about him if you haven’t seen the movie yet, so go see it and then it will all make sense!

I put pipe cleaners in his arms so that he could “dance.” I tried wiring his body, too, but was running into complications with figuring out how to put stuffing in him AND a wire….plus the pipe cleaner wasn’t really strong enough to support his head and body and pipe cleaner was all I had in the house… so I need to play with that more at some point! Anyway, now you all can have your own baby Groot! And I am sure you guys will each put your own little spin on him!! I used online images of the Funko bobble head as my inspiration, cuz I think it’s super adorable!


Also, here is a step by step video tutorial on YouTube to accompany the written pattern below.

P.S. Thank you for all your kind and excited inquiries about whether I will be selling finished baby Groots. I’m really so happy that you guys like him so much! I will not be doing so, since I currently do not have permission or a license from Marvel. I do plan to have a giveaway soon, though, so stay tuned! (And no, I will not be doing a giveaway directly to you only, which is something someone asked!)

Finished Size: Mine is approximately 7.5 inches tall.

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

Abbreviations in U.S. terms:

ch(s): chain(s)
sc: single crochet
sk: skip
sl st: slip stitch
dec: decrease – you can use invisible decrease (invdec) or sc2tog
( ): work everything inside the parenthesis into the next stitch
[ ]: work everything inside the bracket the number of times indicated


I just busted out this pattern last night, and it has not been tested yet. If there are any booboos or weird spots, let me know! 🙂

Head Part A


With Brown and H hook, make magic ring, or ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring.

Rnd 1: Ch 1, 6 sc into ring. (6) Don’t join rnds. Continue to work in a spiral.

Rnd 2: (2 sc) 6 times. (12)

Rnd 3: [(2 sc), 1 sc] 6 times. (18)

Rnd 4: [(2 sc), 2 sc] 6 times. (24)

Rnd 5: [(2 sc), 7 sc] 3 times. (27)

Rnds 6 -11: Sc evenly. (27)

Sl st to next st to join.

You’ll now work on his broken-wood head accents.

Rnd 12: You’ll be crocheting triangular-ish and rectangular-ish shapes, and then slip stitching down one side of each shape to get your hook back to Rnd 11. We do this so we don’t have to break off and re join over and over again to continue our work. I broke each shape into different paragraphs so that they are easier to see and organize.

Ch 1, 3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 2 sc evenly. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st,  1 sc, sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc, sk last st. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1, 1 sc. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. 1 sc, sk 1, sl st. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 4 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st,  1sc, sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sk 1 st, 1 sc. Ch 1, turn. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. sk 1, 2 sc.  Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 1 sc , sk 1, 1 sc. Ch1, turn. Sk 1, 1 sc. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

3 sc evenly. Ch 1, turn. 3 sc evenly. Ch1, turn. 1 sc, sk 1, sl st. Sl st down the side of the rows you just worked until you are about to work into Rnd 11 again.

Sl st into Rnd 11 and break off. Weave in end.

Insert eyes. You get to decide which part of the head should be the face.

Now you’ll finish the top of the head. You’re just making a circle to cover the hole.

Head Part B

With Brown, repeat Rnds 1-4 of Head Part A.

Sl st to next st to join. Break off leaving 24 inches of yarn.

If you want a branch or two sticking out of his head, crochet these now and sew them to the top of Head Part B before you sew it to the top of Head Part A.


With Brown and H hook, ch 8, sk 1 ch, work 2 sl st evenly. Ch 4, sk 1 ch, work 3 sl st evenly, then continue to sl st evenly down original ch. Break off.

Short Branch

With Brown and H hook, ch 6, sk 1 ch, work 2 sl st evenly. Ch 3, sk 1 ch, work 2 sl st evenly, then continue to sl st evenly down original ch. Break off.

Lightly stuff Head Part A.

Since Head Part B is 24 sts around and open hole of Head Part A is technically 27 sts around, you can’t sew stitch for stitch, so just sew it on as best you can and make it look good. I found that using a 27 st circle was too big for the opening. You can use Rnd 11 of Head Part A as a guide for sewing. While sewing, you also don’t want the head to look like it has Frankenstein stitches going all around it, so try to sew as invisibly as you can. Put in more stuffing if needed.



Repeat Rnds 1-4 of Head Part A.

Rnd 5: [(2 sc), 3 sc] 6 times. (30)

Rnds 6-7: Sc evenly. (30)

Rnd 8: [dec, 3 sc] 6 times. (24)

Rnd 9: [dec, 2 sc] 6 times. (18)

Rnd 10: [dec, 4 sc] 3 times. (15)

Put in some stuffing or your sack of poly pellets. If you plan to wire the Body, anchor the bottom wire now if you like, but you can also run the wire after you complete the Body if you don’t have a bag of pellets at the bottom.

Rnd 11: [dec, 3 sc] 3 times. (12)

Rnds 12-13: Sc evenly. (12)

Rnd 14: [dec, 2 sc] 3 times. (9)

Rnds 15 – 25: Sc evenly, stuffing lightly as you go. (9) (Note, I worked to 25 rnds because at first I was measuring the Body against a piece of pipe cleaner that I had. You can make him as tall as you like. For a longer Groot, I crocheted until the Body was about 6 inches long.)

Sl st to next st to join. Break off leaving 18 inches of yarn for sewing.

Sew top of Body to bottom of Head Part A. If you are wiring the body, trim the wire so that it reaches about half way into the head, and then poke the wire into the bottom of the head before sewing.


To prepare Arms, fold each end of the pipe cleaner to its center and then twist. If you are using wire, simply measure out the full length that you need for both arms.


Use a pointy stick to stab through top of Body where Arms will go. I go 1 rnd below the the very top of the neck. This will help guide the pipe cleaner arms through the body, but is not necessary for wire. Slide twisted pipe cleaner into place.


You can now determine how long you want the arms and lengthen/shorten the pipe cleaner/wire  accordingly. If you are using wire, bend the ends in now so that they are not so pokey.

Arms (make 2)

Pull out about 10 inches of Brown yarn for sewing later.

With H hook, ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch to form ring. (Don’t make a magic circle, or if you do, keep the opening loose because you need to fit the pipe cleaner through this hole.)

Rnd 1: Ch 1, work 4 sc into ring. (4)

Rnds 2 – 8: Sc evenly around. (4)

Slip Arm through pipe cleaner to see if it fits. Keep working evenly if you need more coverage.

When you reach the length that you need, create the finger branches.

Sl st to next st to join.

Ch 3, sk 1st ch, sl st 2 times. Sl st to next st.

Ch 5, sk 1 st ch, sl st 4 times. Sl st to next st.

Ch 4, sk 1st ch, sl st 3 times. Sl st to next st.

Sl st to next st. Break off.

While weaving in your end, also sew through the base of the fingers to pull the fingers inward so they are not splayed too open.


Slide Arm back onto pipe cleaner and then sew to body. Repeat on other side.



The number of leaves and their placement are up to you!

With Green and F hook, ch 5 or ch 4 and sl st to 1st ch to form your leaf. Break off.

Tie leaf onto tree with yarn tails and then carefully weave in ends and/or hide them inside the tree.

Twisty Body Bits

If you want to add some twisty/viney bits to the body, simply work a length of chains about 12 – 18 inches for a shorter tree and 24 inches for  a taller tree with Brown and H hook, then wrap chain lengths around Body, sewing down at each end, and also tacking down with a few stitches around the middle wherever you want to make sure the vine stays put. I only made 2 lengths of chain, but you can add more, or put some on the arms, if you like!

Final Assembly

– Embroider a smile with black yarn or embroidery thread.

– Place baby Groot inside a small pot.

– Fill in with smooth pebbles to keep him upright. You might also need some pebbles underneath, so that he is not sitting too low in the pot.

– Decorate with fake moss.

– If you are giving this as a gift, and you don’t want anything to move around, you can also hot glue your baby Groot to the bottom of your pot, or glue something to the bottom of the pot for him to stand on, and then glue him to that, then cover with pebbles, moss, or both!

– EDIT: A couple people have commented that their Groot is too top heavy to stand on its own. I did not design him to stand up by himself. I always keep mine in his little white pot. The next one I make for my friend, I am going to try putting a little sack of Poly Pellets at the bottom and see if that helps. Don’t use loose pellets, as they might leak out of the stitch spaces. I’ve seen on google that some people make a little sack with a dryer sheet, but I’ll probably use a small square of fabric and sew it up, place it at the bottom/feet of the body, and then fill the rest of the body with regular stuffing. I’ll let you know if it works! Also don’t use beans to weigh down your toys. I’ve heard that sometimes if there is too much moisture, the beans will sprout! Which, in this particular case, might be kinda funny, but would also probably ruin your toy :P.

    I was crocheting by your pattern and I think I founs a couple of mistakse in it. On the broken-wood head accents:
    Row 4: Not enought sts for “1 sc, sk 1, sl st 1 sc”
    Row 6: Not enough rows. One RS row missing.
    Last row: Not enough sts for “1 sc, sk 1, sl st, 1 sc”.

    I’m not a prodessional crocheteer, but I am a knit wear designer, so I’m not 100% sure if I can read the pattern correctly.

  2. Kathy B says:

    Just finished my baby Groot, and I think he turned out really well. Thanks so much for this pattern and the video tutorial. Very clear instructions and lots of fun.

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Yay! I’m so glad you liked the pattern!

  3. Melody says:

    Is there any way to see a video of you making this? I am new to crochet and reading patterns is not yet my strong point but I would LOVE to make one of these for my son.

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi, there’s a video in this blog post.

  4. Beccy says:

    Oh my gosh, this pattern is amazing. Very clear and accurate. Thank you so much for sharing it. I made Baby Groot yesterday for my brother-in-law’s birthday.

    I am in the UK, I used a Double Knit yarn with size 4mm hook (and 3mm). He turned out to be 19cm tall, including the branches on his head.

    Thanks again!

  5. Dorthyn says:

    Did you make it so that your Groot actually moves? If so, how did you do this? Probably fairly simple, but I can’t figure out how to get him to move. Put a dancing flower up through the middle? Robotic thing? Something else I’m missing completely?
    Thank you

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Mine did not move. I didn’t have any access to a dancing flower. At the time, they were $400 on eBay!

  6. You just made my century! TY TY TY lots and lots of TY!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      You’re so welcome!

  7. Lauren says:

    Hello! Making this now, but I’m a little confused on the directions for the head…. specifically:
    Rnds 6 -11: Sc evenly. (27)
    Do I just need to decide if I want to go 6-11 rounds depending on how tall I want the head? And I keep counting 27 stiches but by the end of my 6th round, I have not made it back to my stitch marker?
    Sorry, I’m new at crocheting also!! 😉

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Go the full 11 ends. When working in a spiral, you definitely don’t make it back to the stitch marker. And to be honest, I’ve never known if people usually just leave it like that, or work extra stitches to make it back. I don’t know everything! 🙂 I usually just decide if I feel like working more stitches depending on what the thing looks like. Usually if I’m using a marker, and there are a LOT of stitches in a round, like 60 or something, I won’t keep counting the stitches per round, and I’ll just use the marker as a guide.

  8. Kirstin Bonney says:

    Just wNted to say thanks for the amazing pattern! My best friend sent me the link along with the message “I NEED HIM!” I had absolutely no problems at all following your pattern. Now I have to make another one for my husband! LOL

  9. Lucy says:

    Made my baby groot yesterday evening. Lovely pattern so easy to work with. Thank you so much for it. 🙂

  10. Chloe says:

    Just wondering if this is English or American?

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      All my patterns are in US terms.

  11. kelly says:

    Hi I would like to buy a baby groot from you! Please contact me!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! As I stated in my post, I will not be making them to sell. I’m sorry! Take a peek on Etsy. Some ppl might be selling them there.

  12. Amy says:

    I used Vanna’s Choice Lion Brand “barley” which is the brown tweed and available in Michaels (for all the Canadian/Americans out there) 🙂 I also attempted to make my baby Groot stand up on his own …which didn’t work out as well as I thought because I didn’t make the base of the body wide enough, but I have poly pellets in the bottom 9-10 rows of the base as well as a pipe cleaner to help with the bending.
    Love my Groot 😉 thanks for making such an awesome pattern!

  13. bekkuya says:

    lol! OOOHHH beans to weigh down an amigurumi can sprout! o>O I never even thought of this. Twinkie-chan, you are clever in many ways ^___^ …Thank you for the lovely pattern!

  14. denise says:

    I had a thought about it being a stand alone..I got balloon weights you just have to decrease around it it’s perfect and tapered I took a pic but can’t upload it…but my kids (all adults) love groot thanks for the pattern!!!!

  15. alohamora says:

    Hey there, just started this and your directions are great! Wanted to say that I’m using Vanna’s Choice in Barley and it looks a lot like your model and the varigations in the yarn look really bark-y.

  17. Julie says:

    I just finished my baby Groot and he’s lovely! I managed to put a pipe cleaner in the body when it was half done, then poked stuffing in around it as it got bigger and he’s pretty sturdy, though still needs the pot. I reckon I’ll have to make him a few times over once my friends see him! Thanks for the pattern!

  18. Lynda Nelson says:

    I made one for my daughter-in-law who loves it. I solved the problem of body/head support by using shortened chop stick. Arms with heavy florists wire. Came out a little overweight, kinda like me.

  19. Edith Bell says:

    Do you have this pattern in a Friendly Print version? Please I would love to be able to save this for a futur project without the whole web stuff. I’m new to this computer thing, am a G.Gran making things for charity, love the “ODD” things.
    Thanks in advance,

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! I’m sorry! Unfortunately, I don’t usually make time to prep print-friendly version for my free patterns.

  20. Lyanne says:


    First of all, thank you for a wonderful work. I love your patterns.

    My name is Lyanne, and I have a blog called Los Enredos de Lyanne, in my blog i made spanish translations of free patterns for help to my followers that cant understand english patterns.

    I wonder if it is possible for me to translate some of your free patterns into Spanish and share with my blog readers? There are many spanish crocheters that can not read English descriptions. Obviously, I will link to you and your pattern and give you credit for the work!

    You can see my blog in

    Please let me know if it is okay or not.
    Thanks in advance!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi Lyanne!
      Thanks for asking! As long as you link back to my original post, translations are fine. Thank you so much!

  21. Sydney says:

    Hey! love the pattern! you’re so amazing. but would you please tell me how but the pot is? or where u got it? i wanna make sure i get a good sized one

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Just bring your finished toy into a craft or gardening store with you and find a pot you like best. I just got mine at Joann fabrics and took my Groot in with me.

  22. Geeky Hooker says:

    Thank you thank you THANK YOU for this super awesome pattern! Baby Groot turned out great! I’ve been sharing the pattern with everyone! 🙂

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Adorable!!! All your little guys are super duper cute! 🙂

  23. Jane says:

    This is adorable! I wish I had the talent (and time) to make one for my husband.

  24. Jess says:

    Thank you for sharing this pattern, I love my Groot! Have a long list of people wanting one now!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      You’re gonna be so popular!! 😉

  25. Kath Alix says:

    can I sell the item from this pattern if I credit it to you? like if I say, “I got the pattern for this from twinkiechan” ….. I can also put a link (if my laptop isn’t having a seizure) to your blog..

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! I put my personal stance on that at the end of the pattern, which is why I am not selling them in my Etsy shop. “Groot and Guardians of the Galaxy are the intellectual property of someone else who is not me or you, I am guessing Marvel Comics? So I would advise you not to sell items from this pattern without permission.”

  26. Lee says:

    I put an Australian 10c piece in the bottom before stuffing- it keeps him sitting flat and upright!

  27. Tina says:

    Hi, can you recommend a yarn that would look like your brown one 🙂 preferably with a link to a webshop, maybe amazon uk og whatever webshop you may find one 🙂
    I love the structure of the brown and very treelike yarn you use here 😀

    Thank in advance!! 😀

  28. Kathi says:

    OMG I am so psyched to find this!!! My son and his super-crocheter-girlfriend LOVED Guardians of the Galaxy (as did I) and I am SOOOOOOOO going to try to make this for them for Christmas!!! Awesome!!

  29. Erica says:

    Do you have any other Guardians of the Galaxy patterns to try? Groot is too cute! I want to make the rest of the main characters to go with him!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Sorry, this is my only one! I am sure there are others online somewhere!

    I finally made Baby Groot, but I made mine more of an "Adolescent Groot." I like the tweed you used better, but I made out OK with Vanna White’s version. I should have made the vines around him a little thicker (I’ll add to those), but as you can see, I did add vines with the thread I used to make the leaves. The biggest tweak us that I created more of a 3D mouth (I built it out and then filled it with black yarn)…


  31. Missy Reiss says:

    Sorry about that… I thought I could create my comment (with pictures) in HTML code (I’m a web designer). View my comment/pics on the Facebook page…

  32. Ella says:

    I kinda winged it on the broken head bark 🙂

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      As long as it looks good to you, that’s all that counts!

  33. Judi says:

    Thank you so much for creating this pattern! I made it for my niece who loves Groot and it turned out so cute. While I had him, he made me smile every time I looked at him! 🙂

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Awwww I still have one, too, and he also makes me smile!

  34. Sue says:

    Hi there,
    I made one of these for a friend and posted it on my page, now everyone I know wants one. What are the rules on selling this??

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      I put my thoughts on this at the bottom of the pattern: * This free pattern is intended for personal use only. Please do not copy, redistribute, or sell this pattern.

So I would advise you not to sell items from this pattern without permission.

  35. Nanskepanske says:


    What a wonderfull tree you made
    I like to share it with the members of my group
    Can I have the permission to translate it into Dutch?
    I will give you the translation if you like and put the link to your blog on it

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! Sure! Thank you for asking! Can you also link back to my page and say that I am the designer? Thank you so much!

  36. Ruzya says:

    Thanks a lot for this pattern just done it with some yarn leftovers, very clear instructions! Done it in only one afternoon for my friend bday. Thanks!

    1. Ruzya says:

      I’ll link this page in my pic and put your the designer <3

      1. TwinkieChan says:

        Thank you! I really appreciate it!

    2. TwinkieChan says:

      YAY! So much fun!

  37. Jearu says:

    Wonderful pattern, thank you! I’ve not seen the movie, but my niece saw this toy and told me she MUST have it.
    My shopping options for yarn are a bit limited, and while I could not find a tweed yarn, I did find Lion Brand Sequoia, which I found appropriate for a Baby Groot 🙂
    Will add a photo when it’s finished!

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Awww your niece is going to love it so much!

      1. Jearu says:

        I finished it in less than a day, posted a pic on Facebook and tagged my niece, who LOVED it! I cannot figure out how to share the post here, because the privacy settings are being difficult, so I made him my cover picture.
        I made him to stand on his own, and I might just be making one for myself!
        Thank you again for all your hard work on this pattern! 🙂

  38. Jo says:

    How do you make them move?

  39. Misty says:

    I’m having so much fun making this! Thanks for the amazing pattern. I’m using Vanna Tweed and it’s coming out perfectly. <3

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Yay!!! I’m glad you’re having fun!

  40. Pamela says:

    With the wire jewelry craze most craft stores have fine wire in many colors or you could use florist wire that comes in green.
    The arms can be made by using any one of many patterns for crocheting around your charger cord. Substitute your wire for the cord.
    The idea of using one wire for both arms is brilliant.
    The same thing would work for around the body.
    The poly beads can be replaced by pearl rice, lentils, split peas or any cheep small grain in bulk bins. As for growing, most of them will not before the too much moisture causes mold. DON’T water Groot.
    I actually used barley Mom had bought in the 60s

  41. Ilse says:

    I just love this pattern! I realy enjoyed making baby Groot! My friend was very happy with it! 😀 Unfortunately for me… because I realy liked this little guy myself haha. 😛 Greetings from the Netherlands. 🙂

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Aw, make one for you, too!

  42. Nanske Panske says:

    I’m Nanske from Belgium
    I have a FB group (secret just for friends) and my friends asked me if I would translate your wonderful baby Groot into Dutch
    Can I please have your permission ??
    I will put the link to your webpage or blog on it or I give you the translation and put the link to it on my group 
    Greetings and Blessings 

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi, thank you for asking! Yes, please go ahead and translate it, and a link back to the webpage would be amazing.

  43. Ruth Davies says:

    Hi there!
    I followed your video tutorial on Youtube and I am so excited to give my finished Groot to my son (Mad GotG fan) The instructions were very clear but those arms really tested my patience and skills (I think it took about 15 attempts to get two. I found that, once I had got a couple of rows going, sticking a chopstick down the middle of the arm allowed me to keep better track of the stitches. I also half filled the plant pot with Playdough with a dish shape formed into the middle, helped Groot to stay upright. I would love to post a picture but don’t know where or how 🙂 Thanks again for a fantastic tutorrial.

    Thank you so much! My son loves Groot! And this is co cute! I’ll play around with the body insert (industrial size pipe cleaner type thing, one of those twisty hair curler things I don’t use anymore?) so he can make him dance. The new movie is coming out soon and features Baby Groot :).

    Hi! What does “sc evenly” means? Love the project, cant pass fromm 11 round

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      working evenly means to work one stitch per stitch. So 1 sc in each st.

    Hi! I’m making this as a Christmas present for my little sister, but it’s my first time crocheting, so I really hope you can help me out with one (probably stupid) question. I’ve learned how to make a magic circle, but I don’t understand how many chains I should make it with in the first step?

    1. TwinkieChan says:

      Hi! I am not sure I quite understand the question, but making the magic circle doesn’t involve chaining, except maybe after you make the circle. The “ch 3 and sl st to 1st ch” instruction is an alternative to creating a magic circle for people who dont know how to make one. I hope that clears it up? Just make the magic circle and then proceed to Rnd 1 🙂
