Bride & Groom Baby Groot Keyring Free Pattern – Handmade Crochet Amigurumi

This pattern was designed because I just love baby groot.  He’s so adorable! I have a bobblehead of him in my car and he makes me smile daily.  When I was asked to make a wedding gift for two lovers of baby groot I was so excited to have a chance to make them.

You could make these in any colour you choose, you could use the same colour theme as the wedding party.  You can turn them into a keyring like I have, add a ribbon to the top of their heads or leave them as small soft plushies to use as a cake topper, you choose!

You will need:

  • 3.5mm / 4mm crochet hook (depending on how tight you crochet, I used a 3.5mm)
  • DK yarn in beige, light green, grey, red, white & black (I’m unsure of the amount I used but it was less than 50g of each)
  • Soft toy filling
  • Darning needle to sew it all together
  • Keyring attachments (if using)

Stitches / Abbreviations: (US Crochet)

  • MR – Magic Ring
  • SC – Single Crochet
  • INC – Increase
  • DEC – Decrease
  • BLO – Back Loop Only
  • SK – Skip Stitch
  • SS – Slip Stitch
  • St/Sts – Stitch / Stitches

Bride & Groom Heads (made in 2 parts) – Beige Yarn 

Use the same pattern for both the bride and the groom heads.  To make them slightly different I gave the bride eyelashes and added a small flower to her ‘hair’.

The completed project is made up of two patterns. The body is my pattern but the pattern for the head is not my design, it came from this fab designer:  blog.twinkiechan.com/2014/08/13/baby-groot/#more-5970 

I have tweaked the original pattern below slightly but credit still goes to the above – Thank You! 

Head Part A

  • Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) do not join to first stitch, carry on working in the round
  • INC in each st x 6 (12sts)
  • 1SC, INC x 6 (18sts)
  • 2SC, INC x 6 (24sts)
  • 7SC, INC x 3 (27sts)
  • 1SC in each st (27sts) x 5 rows
  • SS – Do Not Fasten Off

Now work on the ‘broken’ head segments.

“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 the head. We do this so we don’t have to break off and rejoin 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 the head 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 the head 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 the head 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 the head again.

SS into the head and fasten off. Weave in ends.”

Finish the head by making a circle.

Head Part B – Beige Yarn

  • Make a magic ring (MR), 6SC into MR (6sts) do not join to first stitch, carry on working in the round
  • INC in each st x 6 (12sts)
  • 1SC, INC x 6 (18sts)
  • 2SC, INC x 6 (24sts)
  • SS and fasten off.  Leaving 24 inches of yarn.  (For sewing to Part A of head)

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 the top 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 invisible as you can. Put in more stuffing if needed.”

  1. What size yarn did you use and what size hook? i have already made Twinkie Chan’s baby groot pattern for my niece using worsted weight yarn and a G hook. It seems your Groots look smaller to me.
