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.
Crochet hook 2,5 mm
Light brown yarn
Dark brown yarn
Tweezers (for stuffing)
Fiber filling or scraps of yarn
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)
Hazelnuts: (work in continuous rounds)
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)
Change to dark brown yarn
Rd 3: (2 sc in next, sc in next 3) 3 times (15)
Weave in the loose ends
Rd 4: (2 sc in next, sc in next 4) 3 times (18)
Rd 5: sc in every st. (18)

Rd 7: (2 tog, sc in next 3) 3 times (12)
Rd 8: (2 tog, sc in next 2) 3 times (9)
Stuff the hazelnut
Rd 9: (2 tog, sc in next) 3 times (6)
1 sl st in next st, cut the yarn, pull through, close up the hole and weave in the ends.
Push the top down a bit and shape the hazelnut so it looks “real”.
Rd 1: 1 sc in the 2. st from the hook, sc in the next 8, 2 sc in next, sc in the next 9 up the other side of the chain.
Rd 2: 2 sc in next, sc in next, hdc in next, dc in the next 5, hdc in next, sc in next., 2 sc i next, sc in next, hdc in next, dc in the next 5, hdc in the next, sc in next, sl st in next. Cut the yarn, pull through and fasten off.
