Is fall in the air, or are you dreaming of the crisp, fresh air with crunching leaves underfoot? Fall is one of my favorite seasons and one of my favorite places to be in the fall is outside among the trees. Often seeing pinecones on the ground or acorns dropping to the ground. So, as my daughter was asking for a new hat, I wanted to make one perfect for the season, the Acorn Hat.
The rich texture in the Acorn hat creates a very warm fabric and a cozy hat. The bold stitch work is what makes this hat so unique and full of character. The texture looks just like an acorn especially with the added leaf for a little pop of color and charm.
But, if you love the texture but an Acorn isn’t quite your thing, no worries. Swap up the look by making the hat in all one color and removing the leaf and it is spot on for a Pinecone hat!
When designing a crochet pattern, finding the perfect stitch is key in the final look of the product. When creating the Acorn hat, I knew the stitch had to be perfect. I wanted a 3D look that would replicate the unique textures and would be easy to identify what the design is.
As soon as I saw the popcorn stitch, I knew this was the perfect stitch. It is a fun stitch to work but does eat up a lot of yarn which is why the hat is so warm and cozy. The patten includes a full photo tutorial of the stitch, you’ll be surprised how easy it is to crochet. Check out my video tutorial on 2 ways to crochet the popcorn stitch below.
The pattern includes sizes for your entire family ranging from newborn up to adult. This would make a darling “nutty” family Christmas card, if you happen to make one, send me a photo, I really want to see it!
