Check this pattern for a knit beet by Berroco. I love the leaf veining and frilled edges. What I would actually do with a knit beet beyond have it sit on my desk looking pretty is beyond me, but so what. It’s a beet! Made of yarn!
I’m imagining leaves knit in shades of burgundy to resemble my favourite beet variety, ‘Bull’s Blood.’ Or a beet in stripes of white and red as an interpretation of the Chioggia‘. No one has to know the ‘Chioggia’ is solid red on the outside. It’s art!
