Pattern Description:

Collecting conkers is one of the things I love about autumn. I think most Brits know about conkers, and the game played with them, but if you don't know what they are please have a look at the posts on my blog. I think in the States conkers are called buckeyes.

This is just a fun little knit. It is easy, and is knitted on two needles, and takes a very small amount of wool. The pattern contains instructions on how to knit the conker, and its distinctive shell.

There is a companion pattern for a horse chestnut leaf. I am going to use my leaves to decorate a bag, with a conker drawstring, for my little conker collectors

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Finished conker is approx 5cm across


  • 4ply wool - brown and tan/cream
  • Knitting Needles 2.75mm
  • Wadding

I have always liked making things, and although I have been knitting a lot recently, I also like sewing and other crafts.

I live on the outskirts of London, and work part-time at a local school, and have partly got back into making things because my children are always doing something creative. At school I love the days when we get really messy.
