Amigurumi squirrels and crochet woodland set
The Big Acorn Race is a 72-page crochet story and pattern book by Jennifer Olivarez that was published in 2016. The story follows the amigurumi characters from the crochet blog, Squirrel Picnic, as they compete to see who can get an acorn out of a tree first. It sounds simple, but there’s a catch: they aren’t allowed to climb the tree. They each must use their wit and imagination to find an alternative solution. The Big Acorn Race also includes 15 crochet patterns and projects to make the items featured in the story.
Shown here are some of the characters, props, and sets that Jennifer crocheted for the book.
