Teresa at Outdoor Alphabet: Help! We need a gigantic acorn and some little ones to match our new logo.
Lorna at Knits for Life: I’ll design it on the double!
Dozens of hours and a lot of OCD later, this not-so-little acorn is prompting predictions of 8-foot squirrels on Twitter.
@KnitsforLife for a very BIG Squirrel??—

The little ones sent me on a hunt for the perfect acorn shape.
Six acorns later, the fruits of these labors deserve to be shared as a free crochet pattern. I’ve also been wanting to design a cut-out pattern that’s easy to read. Opportunity knocks!
Do you lose your place as much as I do when you knit or crochet? It’s the pits! This cute idea shows one line of instructions at a time, with the finished item and the abbreviations right there. No more picking up and dropping my pencil, no more flipping through pdf pages on my e-reader. It’s wonderful! I hope you’ll find it useful. I’d love to hear what you think in the comments.
