This pattern is available from for $3.00.

Please note this is NOT a complete pattern: this is an EXPANSION PACK for my Pine Cone Collection pattern. It includes all the modifications required to crochet a realistic giant-sized pine cone.

Size: approx 8” (20cm) tall

Yarn: All instructions are applicable for any bulky weight yarn, or 2 strands of worsted weight yarn held together, in one or more shades of brown, or any colour(s) of your choice! A giant cone takes a lot of yarn:

  • Worsted weight (held doubled): about 280m/305 yards
  • Bulky yarn (single strand): about 140m/155 yards

Hook: J US/6mm crochet hook

Option: The pattern also includes an option to make a 5” tall mini Giant Pine Cone made with 1 strand of worsted weight yarn and a smaller hook!

You can buy the Pine Cone Collection pattern together with this expansion pack at a reduced price here.

Or if you already have the Pine Cone Collection pattern, the pattern link on this page will let you buy just the Giant Pine Cone Expansion Pack.

What is an Expansion Pack?

  • An Expansion Pack is an add-on to an existing PlanetJune pattern.
  • The Expansion Pack lets you modify or add to the original pattern to create something else.
  • You cannot use the Expansion Pack alone - you must also purchase the original pattern in order to be able to complete the pictured items in the Expansion Pack pattern.
