Secret Compartment Acorn »
Type of item: Toy
Style: Whimsical, Outdoorsy
Lion brand Fisherman's Yarn and Lion Cotton yarns and a g6 or 4 mm hook.
What was your inspiration?
Holly Black's novel "Tithe: A Modern Faerie Tale." The following passage inspired the design: "Kaye pulled lightly on the acorn cap , and it came loose. Inside the nutshell, all the mat was gone, leaving an empty space where a slip of paper was coiled."
What are you most proud of?
This was the first real crochet project I did and my first time crocheting with wool. And I got the design on the first try!
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
If you're using the Fisherman's wool, don't force any of the stitches. Your yarn will break!!
