Crocheted Baby Groot Video Tutorial & Giveaway!

g1Groot news! I just uploaded a new video tutorial to YouTube to accompany my free crocheted baby Groot pattern! (I apologize in advance for the slightly weird photos in this post. They are video screengrabs shot in Photobooth… only the finest quality for you, only the finest.)

Also since so many people have been asking if I will sell a finished Groot to them (I have no plans to sell finished Groots), I decided to have a giveaway here on the blog. You have a week to enter via the Rafflecopter widget below (ends next Friday, October 10th at midnight), and I will draw 5 winners, open internationally!

g2I am running low on the discontinued yarn I used for my original Groot, but I promise to use an equally nubbly and tweedy yarn, which just may end up being a sliiiightly different hue/texture. I will be giving away the baby Groot only and NOT the terracotta pot or any pebbles or moss. You’ll just be getting a little naked baby tree. You have to supply a pot yourself, since I don’t want to ship pots and risk breakage or pay extra shipping for a heavy package. But terracotta pots are easy to find and are cheap, so I think you guys can handle it! I do not recommend giving my baby Groots to small children because of small parts and potential wiring. 


g4You will be able to decide on some customizations for your baby Groot, like the length (long or short, or as I labeled in the photos, “Big Baby” and “Little Baby”) and whether you want the body, arms, or both to be wired. My favorite version for snuggles is no wiring at all, but for posing, my favorite is a wire in the body and pipe cleaners in the arms, but you can tell me what you prefer. Please allow me 3-4 weeks to finish custom-making your new babies before shipping them.

Good luck!

  43. JHa says:

    So happy to see that you made a video tutorial for this! I’ve all ready made my Groot from your pattern (with some difficulty in some spots). When I was making the arms, I tried and tried to do the four stitch in a round thing, but it just wasn’t working for me. So, instead, I just chained five, then worked four single crochets, chained 1, turned, and repeated until the arms were long enough for my liking. Then I worked the finger while still working flat. I think did like a mattress stitch to close it up and made tube and it worked out really nicely.

  44. Kim Waldron says:

    OMG! I would love to win this Groot I am bad at crochet.

    Hopefully only ONE Groot–as that’s all I’ve had time to make so far!!! <3
    AWESOME Pattern!!! As always– THANK YOU TWINKIE!!! <3 <3
