On our walk home from school yesterday the kids and I found a ton of big beautiful pine cones. I quickly had them help me collect a bunch of them because I had a craft project in mind I was inspired by a Fall wreath I saw in Country Living Magazine. It had knitted pine cone acorns (hmmm upon closer look I think those are burlap) hanging from the center and I thought I could easily come up with a crochet version. These are the perfect decor for Fall and would be especially nice for a Thanksgiving centerpiece. I am sure you could find many ways to use and display these!
Pine Cone Cozy Pattern:
Magic Ring, make 10 SC in ring, pull tight and continue to crochet in rounds
