DIY: Crochet pine cones




Here is my English version of the crochet pine cones.

Any yarn will do for these; cotton, wool, lurex... Just make sure to match yarn with the right hook size.

I mostly did them in wool (sport weight) with a size 3 mm needle.

You will need:
Yarn
Matching crochet hook
Fiber filling

The cones are crocheted using crocodile stitch. If you haven’t tried this before, there are plenty of great tutorials to be found online.


Stitches:
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double rochet
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
ch = chain
st = stitch
rnd = round
dec = decrease
V = 2 dc in same st to form a V
A = (Yarn over, insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up loop, yarn over, draw through 2 loops)*2, yarn over, draw through all loops on hook


Scales
*Work 5 dc down post of 1st dc of V, ch 1, 5 dc up post of 2nd dc of the same V, ch 1, skip 5 dc* Repeat from *-* Join with a sl st in 3rd ch.
NB: 1st dc in each round is replaced by 3 ch.

Small scales
No ch between these. *Work 2 hdc and 3 dc dc down post of 1st dc of V, ch 1, 3 dc and 2 hdc dc up post of 2nd dc of the same V, skip the 2 A’s* Repeat from *-* Join with a sl st in 2rd ch.
NB: 1st dc in each round is replaced by 2 ch.

- 1 'floor' consists of 1 rnd of dc’s, 1 rnd of scales and 1 rnd of sc’s.
- Without any increase there are 6 sc on top of each scale.

    1. Yes there is, we callit a slip stitch

  4. No Jo, she said the pattern is in English, not that the terms are UK for crochet. It's US terminology.

  5. There is SC in the UK, but we don't use it much beyond the odd slip-stitch. I'm assuming this is actually written in American, not English, especially with the reference to a "half double crochet", which would be a very odd concept.

  6. Thanks so much for sharing your design for these cute little pinecones. I'll be stretching my hooky skills a bit, since I've never tried the crocodile stitch. But there's no time like the present to give it a go!
    Happy Hooking,

  9. Your numbered order for the scales and floors is confusing. It's gets even more confusing when you state "V" but it does not state, if that is when I am suppose to make a scale, or is that just for a V Stitch?!

  10. I'm confused as to what I do in part 3 of first floor. Does the new sc just go underneath the top of the scales?

  12. Sorry but this Pattern is written in a very confusing way and with all the * and wird abbreviations it is barely understandable. There is too few explanations for about ANYTHING. How do I skip 5 stiches when I do the scales? Where does the round of sc go? This is written so bad, I gave up after a half 1st floor

    1. It looks like *-* you would repeat from * to *....I would say each row where the *'s are is only for that row.
