Amigurumi Acorns Pattern!

You may remember these guys fom a very, very long time ago. I had the pattern up here and then I took it off for, shall we say, personal reasons. But what they hey I am putting it back up here to stay. Feel free to do whatever you like with this pattern, so long as you give credit where credit is due. I would love to see pics if anyone makes some! I am going to start making some more without faces until fall arrives and then I will put them in a bowl with some leaves as a centerpiece. Also, I will be putting one of each of these in the prize baskets for my blogiversary. Don't forget to leave a comment to be enterd in the prize drawing, and have fun!

Amigurumi Acorns:

Small amounts of green, light brown, and dark brown worsted weight yarn
Size US G6/4.00mm hook
Scraps of dark brown embroidery thread (if you want faces)
Small amount of fiberfill

For the fat brown variety:
Rnd 1: Start with an adjustable ring in the light brown yarn, and crochet 4 sc into the ring, pull tight and join with a slst.
Rnds 2-4: *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next* repeat from * around, ending up with 6 sts in rnd 2, 9 sts in rnd 3, and 13 sts in rnd 4.
Rnds 5-7: Sc in each sc around. (13 sts)
Rnd 8: Switch to the dark brown yarn and crochet 2 sc in each sc around. (26 sts)
Rnd 9: *sc in next sc, decrease in next* repeat from * around. (13 sts) Now is a good time to start stuffing.
Rnds 10-12: Continue to decrease every other stitch, ending up with 9 sts in rnd 10, 6 sts in rnd 11, and 3 sts in rnd 12. The stem should be naturally formed by rnd 12.
Bind off, weave in end, and embroider a cute little face!

For the skinny green variety:
Rnd 1: Start with an adjustable ring in the green yarn, and crochet 6 sc into the ring, pull tight and join with a slst.
Rnd 2: *sc in next sc, 2 sc in next* repeat from * around. (9 sts)

  9. Just as a heads-up: There's an error in your pattern. *SC in next stitch, dec next sc* does not reduce 24 stitches down to 12. To do that, you'd need to dec every stitch, instead.

    This is a wonderful pattern! I love my little acorns, thank you so much for pointing the way!
