Hi! How’s everyone this week? It’s rainy and overcast here so I’m already feeling the Fall, in my head at least because it’s still like 80 degrees outside. Last week I said that I was going for it, no more waiting, it’s Fall ya’all! And to celebrate I’m bringing you a few different acorn designs, last week’s Acorn Mug Cozy and this week’s Squeezable Acorn Ami make two and you’ll be getting a basket design next week! Then it’s going to be some Halloween designs I’ve been thinking of. 😀
For this week’s design I decided to keep it simple, making it easy for more crocheters to make. I know that a lot of people would like to see some texture in the top of the acorn, and that’s fine, add it! I didn’t want to because I wanted it to be simple enough to understand and make that everyone can have cute acorns adoring their beds and couches. I sure do hope you’re as excited for the Fall as I am.

You can purchase an ad-free downloadable pdf for this pattern for $.50 in my Ravelry shop.

Notes

  • This pattern is worked in 4 sections – the acorn body and the top, you work those two twice. The top is worked from the other side of the first row of the acorn body. Then you single crochet all the way around the two pieces and stuff it with stuffing before closing.
  • This pattern is worked back and forth, with a turn at the end or the beginning of the row.
  • The ch 1 at the beginning of the row does not count as a stitch.
  • You can replace the chain row (row 1) with a foundation single crochet row.
  • Feel free to add some texture to the top with surface crochet or alternating BLO/ FLO.
  • You’re going to need to know how to create a slipknot on your hook for this pattern.
  • Color A is green or orange and color B is brown in the photos.

When you’re back to where you began, fasten off and weave in all your ends.
