Make acorns cozy! This fall stitch up a quick Crochet Acorn Cap.
Leaves aren’t the only thing falling right now. Acorns are aplenty all around where we live. We have a few different types of acorns where I live, ranging in size and color. I picked up these medium size acorns that have a slight stripe on them when I picked up Littlest from school this week.
It seems that most often when I spot an acorn it’s either the acorn cap or the acorn nut. It’s less common to find an entire acorn together. I decided that these cap-less acorns could use an upgrade, in the form of a Crochet Acorn Cap. I pulled a few fall colored yarns out of my stash and a size F (3.75mm) crochet hook. Then it was simply making a chain stitch, no other crochet stitches required.
I crocheted about 60 chain stitches and then left a loop at the end. The exact number of chain stitches I needed varied slightly by acorn. Starting in the middle-ish I hot glued the chain stitch to the acorn, working in a loop and moving towards the top of the acorn. I left a small amount of chain stitch sticking up from the top like a stem.
To finish it off I knotted the end of the chain stitch, trimmed it, and added another drop of hot glue.
Here’s my lineup of fall colored crochet acorn caps. I put a handful in a glass leaf dish to decorate. (Now we’ll just see if the cats and Littlest can leave them alone. My guess is that they can’t. Or won’t.)
