Crocheted Carrot Garden Marker
"I recently started a little garden – mostly veggies, and for the plants I bought already started, like my green peppers and strawberries, I just took the little marker that was in their original containers, and moved those over (because I like the additional information they have on them), but for the carrots that I planted seeds for, the planter didn’t have a marker. If it holds up well, I may make a whole set for my other pots. I used my Basic Leaf 2 Ways Crochet Pattern, and modified it to get a skinnier look to better resemble the carrot shape. This project takes 15 minutes or less to complete."
NotesUse any weight yarn and respective hook to get a different sized applique. Lightweight and bulky could make cute markers too!
