PATTERN DETAILS

Acorns are not just for the squirrels! There are so many reasons to crochet an acorn. In fact, here are some unique ideas for using crochet acorns for decoration, jewelry making, and even entertaining your pet. Make a gift box! My pattern includes instructions on making a cap and a bottom, which you sew together to form an acorn. If instead you don't sew the cap to the bottom of the acorn, you'll have a unique gift box in which to hide a little present. Add acorns to a fall wreath or mantel display. Crochet your acorns in holiday colors or all white and hang them on your tree or display them in a decorative bowl on your coffee table. String a cord through the stem and wear the acorn as a necklace. Use bright colors and a crochet hook size H-8 (5.0 mm) or larger to make an acorn pincushion, present topper, or even a cat toy. This pattern includes instructions for making 3 sizes of acorn depending on the crochet hook you use. C-2 (2.75 mm) will make a 2" tall acorn F-5 (3.75 mm) will make a 2 1/2" tall acorn H-8 (5.0 mm) will make a 3" tall acorn BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY single crochet crochet in the round increasing decreasing SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 2" - 3" depending on crochet hook size (see PDF pattern materials section)

Squirrel Picnic
My mom taught me to crochet when I was growing up. I made a lot of scarves and granny-square blankets before finally discovering amigurumi in 2009. Since then I’ve been designing and creating amigurumi for my blog Squirrel Picnic, which I began as a way to use my love of storytelling and crochet to entertain, inspire, and bring some happiness to the world. In addition to amigurumi, at Squirrel Picnic you’ll also find free patterns for some out-of-the-ordinary items like a Bowser from Mario Bros. sweater for tortoises and a Batman mask for adults. Both of these are from my Make It! Challenge series. For this series, I accept crochet challenges (the wackier, the better) from my readers. If I’m successful, I publish the pattern I create specifically for the challenge so others can make one, too, and I give the sample to the person who challenged me as a thank-you for their idea. Whether you’re looking for free patterns, inspiration, or some lighthearted entertainment, join me at the picnic. We’re bound to have a good time.
