The Squirrel and Acorns toy is worked from the bottom up seamlessly with the exception of attaching the head to the body. The rest of the parts of the toy, including limbs, ears and pocket, are picked up and knit on.
The squirrel's tummy pocket is the most fun and unique aspect of the toy. To fill the pocket the designer has included the pattern for the sweet little acorns. The pocket holds up to 5 acorns.
