They work up very quickly and easily. here is basically how i did them.
1. Ch 2, 4 sc in first ch , join to first sc and ch 1
2. Sc in same joining space, and sc in same space again. Continue with 2 sc in each sc of row below.Join,
3. Sc in same joining space, and sc in same space again. 2 sc in each sc of row below. Join, and ch 1
4. Sc in each sc in row below. Join, ch 1 . Repeat this row 6 more times. Tie off.
5. Now for the cap. Ch 17, and join. Make sure this loop will fit around the top of your acorn. if it doesnt
easily, separate and add or subtract a chain. Ch 1
6. Sc in each ch, join, and ch 1. repeat this row once more.
7. Skip next sc and sc in next one. Skip one sc, and sc in the next. Continue around , not joining, just
working in a spiral.
8.Continue step 7 until you reach the very tip, and creat a little nub at the top, cut, and pull end thru loop.
9. Put a little bit of glue around the inside edge of cap. Stuff acorn, and push cap on and let dry.
Wouldnt these look adorable strung on twine to form garland and hung on the tree, or mantle? Or how about filling a little basket or bowl?Or even in a small nest and placed on the tree?
