The Squirrel and Acorns toy is worked from the bottom up seamlessly with the exception of attaching the head to the body. The rest of the parts of the toy, including limbs, ears and pocket, are picked up and knit on.

The squirrel’s tummy pocket is the most fun and unique aspect of the toy. To fill the pocket I have included the pattern for the sweet little acorns. The pocket holds up to 5 acorns.

The squirrel is worked in Quince & Co. Owl and Lark. The acorns are worked in tiny bits of O-Wool Balance. All are worsted weight yarns.

The Squirrel and Acorns pattern is part of Alana Dakos’ Never Not Knitting Press (NNKPress) printed pattern line which is sold in local yarn shops everywhere.

The Squirrel and Acorns pattern is part of a trio of Woodland Animals that inlcudes Hedgie, a tiny hedgehog, and a Woodland Fox.
