hooking an acorn sprite

I fancied a bit of fun with my crochet hook, but couldn’t decide on any patterns in my numerous books.  So . . . I had a browse on etsy and came across the most delightful patterns by CritterStitchDesigns.   

I couldn’t make up my mind which pattern to buy, they are all so cute. But I finally decided on a couple of sprites.

This is my version of the Acorn Sprite.  I hooked using Stylecraft DK and a 2.5mm hook which means he turned out at 9″ tall.  I think he’s ever so cute.

Instructions said to sew the acorn hat in place but I’ve kept it removeable.

I plan on making several more acorn sprites, using different colours for their outfits & wing/leaves . . . but in the meantime, I’ve already started work on a flower sprite.

      • Oh my bad, I thought it was a girl sprite, I obviously didn’t read properly 🙈 he is adorable then! I’m sure your little neighbour loved him, Clark would have claimed him in an instant 😊

      • it’s the hair do that makes me think it’s a boy ^^ I suppose I could alter hair style and make a girl acorn sprite.
