Amigurumi acorn pattern


Here's my present to you guys... a free amigurumi pattern for a kawaii acorn! Even though Fall is winding down, acorns are good all year round! I imagine you guys could make a whole mess of these, and they'd be super cute as decorations or favors, keychains, charms etc! I'd love to see finished amigurumi (from this pattern or others)... please consider posting your lovelies to the berrysprite amigurumi flickr group; you can also become a member; we'd love to have you!

Feel free to make these for your friends and family, but if you are going to sell them I'd really appreciate a shout out that credits me for the design (and maybe even link to my blog!) Also please don't distribute the pattern. Thanks in advance guys!
