Crochet Baby Groot in Pot

Inspired by "Guardians of the Galaxy" and also after seeing the crochet pattern from Twinkie Chan, I decided to make the Baby Groot too!

I first made my Groot with a solid dark brown acrylic yarn which looks great but not as lively as I like.  The Groot looks a bit dull and I can't really see the big grin on his face so it was yarn hunting time after that.

Lucky for me, I managed to find King Cole Fashion yarn (30% Wool 70% Premium Acrylic) with tweed-effect shades. I wasn't sure about the effect it will turned out when I bought the skein but fell in love with it when I finished the Groot's head. The shades on the yarn makes the Groot looks more "alive", now I can see its big grin!

And to make him more real life like, I went to buy a super duper expensive packet of moss from Art Friend, I hot-gun glued them bit by bit using a tweezer onto the "dirt" in the pot.

The pot is 1/3 filled with plastic pebbles to create some weight so that it does not topple over easily.

Groot is sewn onto the pot thus it is not removable. It has pipe-cleaners in its arms and body I can bend it this way and that way to my liking.  

So what do you think of my Groot?

He's cute to the max right?  Ok ok I am being so proud and not humble but I've never been so satisfied with my own creation.  This is up for pre-order in my etsy shop - Shop of Curios, takes about 2 weeks to finished it and mail it out either locally or overseas.

Follow my craft creations at my facebook page of the same name Shop of Curios over here where I constantly post snippets of my current projects and musing of the day while out yarn hunting or corcheting.

I am thinking of my next project now and this fella is a big hit with every one; both young and old.  Want to know the answer?  Head off to my crochet facebook page to check it out!


  1. Baby groot is very nice! Someone asked if I wanted to sell the Baymax I crocheted, but I cannot put a price to it because of the amount of time I spend on it. Waiting to see more of your creations! :)

    1. Cherie, usually I just gauge and sometimes the item will give me inspirations on the price tag to put on them =)
