Charming Acorn Free Crochet Pattern

Oh my stars, you would not believe the darling crochet acorn pattern I stumbled upon the other day! It’s as cute as a button and simple enough that even a newbie could tackle it with confidence. The acorn, that classic symbol of autumn, is just the perfect little addition to any seasonal decor or even as a sweet little pendent for a necklace.

So, here’s the skinny on making this woodland treasure – dive in with some sturdy brown and tan yarn, a trusty hook that sits snug in your hand, and you’ll be well on your way to conjuring up a bevy of these tiny delights . Begin with a magic ring, and work your way through a spiral of single crochets to form the nutty base; you’ll feel it taking shape between your fingers like magic! Transition to the cap with some nifty stitch work that creates that adorable, textured look we all fancy.

The love of crafting really shines when you see your finished acorn come to life! It’s like every little stitch is a whisper of creativity. There’s something profoundly satisfying about turning yarn into something that sparks joy and brings smiles .

So, why not give this a whirl, and before you know it, you’ll have enough acorn charms to start your very own forest!

Designer: Crafty Emmi

Materials & Tools

  • 2.5 mm crochet hook
  • Soft stuffing/polyester fiberfill
  • Sport weight yarn in 2 colors:
  • A – camel
  • B – taupe


Rnd – round
St – stitch
Ch – chain
Sl st – slip stitch
Sc – single crochet
FLO – in front loop only


Start with color A.

Rnd 1: 4 sc in magic ring
Rnd 2: (2 sc, in next sc) * 4 (8)
Rnd 3: (2 sc in next sc, 1 sc) * 4 (12)
Rnd 4-7: 12 sc (12)

Fasten off.

In rounds 8-11 you have to change the usual direction of inserting the hook, this means: insert the hook from the inside (1), as shown by the pink arrow, not from the outside as usual (2).

Acorn tips 1

Start rnd 8 in any front loop (3).
Because of the changed view, don’t confuse the front loops with the back loops! The punk dot shows a front loop.

Use color B and make the first sc of rnd 8 a standing stitch (4)

Make sure the front of the stitch is facing inward. You are inserting the hook correctly if it looks like the stitch in the picture. Then continue with rnd 8.

Rnd 8: (2 sc FLO in next sc, 1 sc FLO) * 6 (18), start stuffing

In rounds 9-11, work all stitches FLO too.

Note that the invisible decrease is not suitable when working in the front, loops from the inside. Therefore, use the standard decrease with ‘sc2tog’

Rnd 9: (1 sc, sc2tog) * 6 (12)
Rnd 10: sc2tog * 6 (6)
Rnd 11: sc2tog * 2 (4), then stop rnd, do not fasten off.


ch 3, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next ch, fasten off and leave a long tail for closing the remaining hole.
