Easy Oversized Carrot

I was asked last minute to make a gigantic carrot for a quick add to a costume.
This was so fun to make, and quick too!
I wrote it down as I was making it (yay! I usually forget to do this lol)
Wanted to share it right away since we're only a few days away from Halloween!
So here's an oversized carrot for your little bunny.



Materials:
Hook size: M/9.00mm 
Yarn Needle

Note: I used 2 skeins. One entire skein will make the carrot, the other I used for stuffing (that way if you see any of the stuffing inside, its the same colour).  Also, use any green yarn you have on hand for the leaves.

Legend:
Ch - Chain
SC - Single Crochet
2SC - 2 single crochets in one stitch
SC2TOG - 1 sc in 2 stitches, to decrease
Sl St - Slip Stitch

SC2TOG: Insert hook, pull up a loop, insert hook in next stitch, pull up a loop, yarn over and pull through all loops
