Fall is coming! The squirrels have been burying acorns in the garden for weeks. While listening to the sound of the rustling leaves, I grabbed a sketch pad and drew up this design. Then I spent most of the day working on this pillow. I used Cascade 220 for this project but any worsted weight with a variety of colors is fine. The trim of tiny acorns is done using simple color-work, slip stitching and yarn overs to create the trim shaping. Oak leaves and the acorn on the front are knit separately and appliqued in place. I use foam pillows as they are inexpensive and give me a third dimension (the sides) to design onto.
