Small hazelnuts..

The hazelnuts and leaves arranged around a glass containing a lit tea light

Fall is just around the corner and it’s time to find and collect the hazelnuts.
I wanted to make a pattern that’s close to what I can find in nature. The hazelnuts are made from the top down in cotton nr 8 or similar, measures approx. 3 cm / 1,2″. The leaves measures approx. 4 cm / 1,5″. The pattern is free and in US terms.

Materials needed:
Crochet hook 2,5 mm
Light brown yarn
Dark brown yarn
Green yarn
Stitch marker
Tapestry needle
Tweezers (for stuffing)
Scissors
Fiber filling or scraps of yarn

Abbreviations:
MR = magic ring
st = stitch
sc = single crochet
sl st = slip stitch
2 tog = crochet 2 st. together
ch = chain stitch
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
(do this) x times (stitches total in the round)

Start with light brown yarn
6 sc in a MR
Rd 1: 2 sc in every st. (12)
Rd 2: sc in every st. (12)
