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.

You could make this into a keyring like I have, add a ribbon to the top of the head or leave it as a small soft plushie, 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, 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 attachment (if using)

Stitches / Abbreviations: (US Crochet)

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

Head (made in 2 parts) – Beige Yarn 

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 slightly (see below) 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

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

  • 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.
  • 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 the head 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 the head 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 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.

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

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.

The following continues as my pattern

Body – 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 in each st (18sts) x 5 rows

Separate the legs making a slip stitch in the other side of the body. Work legs separately. Working in 9sts each side.
