I was inspired by the felt pinecones on Pinterest to make my own crochet version. I love everything about the pinecones, their shape, the way the petals are stacked and how they scream fall, my favorite season of the year.

 

 

 

They make the perfect project for your leftover skeins of yarn. Incorporate into your fall Decor and use up those babies.

 

While designing these pinecones, I visualized them as flowers stacked on top of each other. I tried working both from the bottom up and the top down. I decided to stick with the bottom up design as that seemed to work better for me.

I had made them last week but forgot to take full notes. I had to remake them and then write the pattern. I will never make that mistake again, lesson learned!

 

Do not get intimidated by the number of rows. They are just repetition of the same 3 steps and you will quickly get a hang of it. The rows have only been spelled out to make it easy for beginners.
