…or the acorn, as the case may be.
This pendant had an unlikely origin, that my dog, the sweet but crazy Leelu, once again jumped the fence and I had to track her down on a neighboring block. On my hunt, I found a few fat little acorns and stuffed them in my pocket. Later, looking at them, I decided to try to make a crocheted cap just to see what it would look like, and this is the result. I think this is one of the tiniest, most delicate things I’ve ever made, and I want to make a few more to see what may come of it.
acorn is 1″ tall, leaves measure .5″ long
size 20 cordonette cotton thread, 1mm hook
I may try some even thinner tatting thread and a smaller hook on a new one, just to see what it would look like
