Description

A whimsical storybook and crochet pattern book in one!

The story of The Big Acorn Race takes readers on an adventure in a colorful crochet world. Here we follow three little squirrels, Hodge and Podge and their friend Eric, 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. What will they invent and who will win?

But the fun doesn't stop when the story ends! Over 15 crochet patterns and projects show you how to make the squirrels and their inventions, as well as accessories for you inspired by the story.

Known for her ability to create patterns that are both simple in technique but truly creative and entertaining, Jennifer Olivarez has taken great care to design projects that will be fun for the beginner and experienced crocheter alike.

Winner of the 2016 National Indie Excellence Award in Crafts & Hobbies
