Toddler Groot – Crochet Pattern

Toddler Groot - Crochet PatternI love the movie Guardians of the Galaxy and come this May they are coming out with the second one and I can not wait! I love Rocket and Groot in the movie, especially Groot, of course! In the second movie, he is now a toddler Groot, and he looks even more adorable. I decided that I needed to recreate this Groot in crochet for my husband, who is also a huge fan of the movie and the duo. Since the movie hasn’t come out yet, I couldn’t find a crocheted version of this toddler Groot, so I decided to design him myself. I’m quite happy with how he turned out.
