Andy the Acorn Free Crochet Pattern



Welcome back to my blog my friends,

Here we are with our second Fall project! After learning how to make the super cute Kleo the Pumpkin, today I'll be sharing the easy instructions to create an adorable amigurumi Acorn.


I love the fairly big size of these fun characters - perfect for being displayed as home decor, but also for your kids playtime!


Andy the Acorn is worked with Basic Stitch® yarn by LION BRAND YARN!
