I am very excited to announce this book is has been released and is available through amazon. Click on the picture for details. Below is the press release. I had the privilege and fun to be a pattern tester for this book and with all Jennifer’s patterns, they were easy to follow and had a great result in a short time.
The Big Acorn Race by crochet artist and writer Jennifer Olivarez
is a whimsical storybook and crochet pattern book in one!
The story takes readers on an adventure in a colorful crochet world. Here we follow three little squirrels, Hodge and Podge and their friend Eric, as they compete to see who can get an acorn out of a tree first. It sounds simple, but there’s a catch: they aren’t allowed to climb the tree. They each must use their wit and imagination to find an alternative solution.
What will they invent and who will win?
But the fun doesn’t stop when the story ends! The Big Acorn Race also includes over 15 crochet patterns and projects to make the squirrels and their inventions,
as well as accessories for you inspired by the story. Easy-to-follow, step-by-step instructions and tutorials will guide you in making your own squirrel characters,
and the colorful photographs will inspire you to imagine new adventures for these crocheted friends.
Known for her ability to create patterns that are both simple in technique
but truly creative and entertaining, Jennifer has taken great care to design projects that will be fun for the beginner and experienced crocheter alike.
