It looks like Groot, one of the main characters from the new Guardians of the Galaxy movie, has really planted an amigurumi seed in the minds of crocheting fans, because crocheted Groots are sprouting up all over the internets! Here are a few of the crocheted Groots that I’ve come across so far, including the smiley one above by devaintART user Spudstitches.


A full-grown Groot by Crafty Is Cool.


A Groot-in-progress from Hookery Crochet.


A baby Groot from Elin Makes.


And a dancing baby Groot from Smartapple Creations.


Amigurumi guru Twinkie Chan put together a free dancing baby Groot crochet pattern for anyone who’d like to crochet a dancing baby Groot of their very own!
