TINY SQUIRREL - These must be some of the smallest knitted squirrels you’ll ever see with hazelnut-sized heads and walnut-sized bodies. To keep them safe their mothers pop them into acorn cup baskets which they hang in trees.

QUICK and EASY to knit squirrels in acorn cup baskets are great little fund raiser at fairs and bazaars.

TINY SQUIRREL knitted flat on pairs of 2.75mm needles. Basket on 3.25mm needles (US sizes 2 and 3). Small amounts of double knitting yarn are required (USA use light worsted/Australia - 8 ply).

Created and written by knitwear designer Wendy Phillips, this four page pattern has numbered rows which make it very easy to follow. There are plenty of knitting tips and illustrations to guide you throughout the pattern. Only basic knitting skills are required. Pattern is written in English.

This Etsy shop is run by a member of the Westmorland Red Squirrel Society, a charity registered in Great Britain. Registered Charity No. 1144416. When you purchase this pattern you will be helping the society maintain a healthy population of red squirrels in South East Cumbria (English Lake District).

Average review
Brilliant. I have found it easy to follow & results are just as illustrated! I'm very pleased & feel it's worth the pattern - kids love it. The little squirrel can also be adapted to a bunny or just use you imagination!

This pattern is adorable. Easy to follow pattern. They are a bit fiddly, but are so sweet when made up. I've made some for my annual Easter event at our local Hospice and I am sure the kids will love them. Thank you.
